Invisalign clear aligners are a modern alternative to braces! They are the perfect choice for anyone who needs to have their teeth realigned, from the high school student to the CEO and everyone in between. The trays are discreet, and nearly invisible.
At Signature Dental Arts, we take digital “impressions” of your teeth and create a 3D virtual model to map out your smile’s movements every two weeks through the anticipated final weeks of treatment. The plastic trays are custom fitted to your mouth. You’ll progress to the next set every two weeks, to continue moving your teeth without any need for brackets and wires.
How Do I Clean Invisalign?
Removable braces like Invisalign are remarkably easy to keep clean! The system is intended to be very low maintenance; you’ll take your trays out to eat or drink, brush and floss then replace them. Make sure you also brush and floss at night and in the morning, and brush the aligners daily. It is that simple! Unlike metal braces, you don’t run the risk of periodontal disease or tooth decay from not being able to clean well enough. There are no extra tight spots for food debris to get stuck or for tartar to accumulate.
No Foods Are Off Limits!
People with braces have to be very careful about what they eat to avoid popping brackets off. Invisalign is not attached to your teeth that way; you remove them while eating and replace them afterward. You can eat whatever you want during treatment… even caramel, popcorn, apples, carrots, and hard candy. Though honestly, as dental care professionals, we don’t recommend the candies!
Invisalign Doesn’t Hurt!
Metal brackets and wires can poke your cheeks, irritate gums, and have brackets that can pop off causing emergencies. Invisalign trays are plastic. They won’t hurt your mouth and are meant to be removed periodically. Even check-ups are less frequent with Invisalign, so you spend less time at the dentist’s office!
As with any dental treatment with Dr. Kim and associates, financing options are available to our Invisalign patients. Our staff can offer you a selection of payment plans to fit your pocketbook!
