Do you need braces, but don’t want them to show?
Good news! You might be a good candidate for Invisalign in Lakeville, Prior Lake, and the surrounding areas.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a more modern approach when it comes to achieving a confident smile with straight teeth. It’s a form of invisible braces that shifts your teeth into alignment, without the use of archwires and brackets. Instead, a series of plastic, clear, customized, removable appliances known as aligners are used to shift and align teeth. These aligners are practically unnoticeable when worn, which means people will likely only notice your smile, not your orthodontic appliances.
The Invisalign System couples advanced 3D computer graphics technology with orthodontic science. Invisalign aligners are designed to guide your teeth in steady increments to their desired final position prescribed for Invisalign in Prior Lake and Invisalign in Lakeville by our orthodontist, Dr. Bonvino. Every aligner is expertly calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Depending on each patient and based on the movement of teeth, a new set of aligners is usually given to switch out every one to two weeks. As each aligner is replaced with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Now that’s a treatment that gives you something to smile about!
Invisalign vs. Braces
Invisalign uses clear aligners, instead of the brackets and wires used for standard braces. Invisalign also uses smooth plastic aligners that are much more comfortable. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are removable, therefore easier for cleaning. With braces, it’s more difficult to brush and floss your teeth. Invisalign also allows you to eat whatever you want, but braces have numerous restrictions when it comes to food.
For best results, only an orthodontist who is trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat with Invisalign. Only an orthodontist, like Dr. Bonvino, can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. At Cosmopolitan Orthodontics, we will plan out what the best program for Invisalign in Lakeville or Invisalign in Prior Lake is for you.
The Next Step
Are you ready to achieve the smile you have longed for? Do you think Invisalign is right for you?
Whether you need Invisalign in Lakeville, Invisalign in Prior Lake or the surrounding areas, we’ve got you covered.
Come visit Cosmopolitan Orthodontics for a complimentary assessment to see if Invisalign can appropriately address your orthodontic situation.
If it can, a digital scan will be done on your teeth, using the itero scanner, and Dr. Bonvino will send precise treatment instructions to the Invisalign laboratory, which uses advanced computer technology to fabricate a sequence of finely calibrated aligners (it can be as few as 5 or as many as 48).
And, remember each aligner is worn for approximately one to two weeks, and they are to be taken out only to eat, brush and floss. Since they are removable, compliance is key to Invisalign success. So when you are not eating or going through your oral hygiene routine, you need to wear your aligners to achieve the quickest, most successful result.
