What Does North Austin Invisalign Treatment Entail?

Invisalign uses a sequence of clear, detachable aligners to straighten your teeth and enhance oral health. When followed as recommended, Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces for correcting many common orthodontic issues.

At your initial consultation, we'll take x-rays and digital scans to generate an accurate 3D model of your teeth. This model helps us create aligners specifically designed for your smile. Made from smooth, comfortable material, these aligners snugly cover your teeth. You'll switch to a new set every 1-2 weeks, gradually shifting your teeth to their new, correct positions.

Benefits of Opting for North Austin Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and entirely removable, setting them apart from traditional braces. You should remove your aligners before consuming anything but water, ensuring no food gets trapped in brackets or wires. They also need to be removed for brushing and flossing, simplifying oral hygiene maintenance during orthodontic treatment.

The ability to remove aligners to eat and drink means no dietary restrictions, a significant advantage over traditional braces. To prevent staining, remove aligners before meals and clean them with warm water at least once daily.

Invisalign eliminates the discomfort of wires and the need for adjustment appointments, though wearers must still visit every 6-8 weeks so Dr. Name can monitor progress.

How the North Austin Invisalign System Works

The Invisalign process is straightforward. Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series, your teeth will gradually move into their improved positions.

During your appointments at ATX Braces, we'll ensure your treatment is on track. It's crucial to change your aligners as scheduled and wear them as directed. This adherence is vital for the success of your Invisalign treatment. Custom-designed to fit your dental needs, aligners must be frequently changed to match your teeth's movement as they straighten. Neglecting to change aligners or missing appointments can reverse progress.

Orthodontic responses vary by individual. Invisalign's unique, less invasive approach means treatment duration can differ, typically ranging from 6 to 18 months, though this varies widely. Treatment length largely depends on patient compliance.

Average treatment estimates are based on adherence to wearing aligners for 20-22 hours daily throughout treatment. Deviating from this schedule can prolong your treatment duration. Invisalign's effectiveness hinges on patients sticking to the plan.
