First introduced over 20 years ago, Invisalign is an effective teeth straightening alternative to fixed metal braces offered at our Mandeville office. Instead of bulky brackets and wires, Invisalign’s clear, flexible plastic aligner trays gently and comfortably move misaligned teeth into their intended positions in as little as six months. Because the Invisalign trays are removable, you can still eat all the foods you love, and easily brush and floss your teeth. When the Invisalign system treatment is through, you’ll have the beautiful, straight new smile you’ve always wanted!
Over the years on site at Allure Dental, our Invisalign patients have seen some amazing teeth- straightening results while wearing their clear aligners. The pros and cons of Invisalign are clear. In addition, they’ve told us that they really enjoy wearing Invisalign for these reasons:
- Very comfortable
- Trays are easy to keep clean
- Easy to brush and floss teeth
- Virtually unnoticeable to others
- Self-confidence booster
- No food restrictions (you can still eat your cookies and corn)
- Great reviews
Many dental insurance plans now cover some of the costs of removable braces like Invisalign, so contact our Mandeville office today to see if your benefits apply.
Invisalign is indicated for patients with mild-to-moderate teeth misalignments or improper bites (oral malocclusions), while patients with more serious smile imperfections are typically referred by Dr. Eversgerd to an orthodontist in the Mandeville area. On average, most of our Invisalign wearers achieve their teeth-straightening goals within 6 to 24 months, with before and after pictures showing great results. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, as of 2019, this is what you can expect as your course-of-treatment plays out:
- You’ll have detailed impressions of your teeth and mouth taken, along with digital X-rays and photos. All your information will then be transmitted to the Invisalign lab.
- At their lab, they will create your aligner trays with computer-aided precision for optimal comfort and performance. Once your Invisalign trays come in, we’ll call you to come and pick them up.
- Once you have your aligner trays, they are intended to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day, including while sleeping, and only removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Not following these guidelines could result in you having to extend your Invisalign treatment for several more weeks or months. Our average Mandeville Invisalign patient achieves their teeth straightening goals in between 6 and 24 months. Your usage helps to determine how long they are needed.
It’s never too late to have the straight teeth and beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted! As a certified Invisalign provider we’ve seen some amazing results in patients who’ve used Invisalign to straighten their teeth. At Allure Dental, Invisalign removable braces are just one of the many ways that we’re redefining the dental experience for families in Mandeville and surrounding areas.
