Silver City Invisalign

For years, the only real option for straightening teeth has been metal orthodontics. While many people desire a straighter smile, the thought of having a mouth full of metal may cause them to think otherwise about seeking treatment.

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth into the ideal position. In a stepwise fashion, teeth move in sequence with the computer designed fit of the aligners. The aligners are worn for two weeks, and removed only for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Is Invisalign the Right Choice for Your Smile?

If you wish to improve your smile, Invisalign may be the treatment for you. Using both computer technology and orthodontic principles, Invisalign treatment can help improve smiles without the dreaded “metal-mouth.”

Top Advantages of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

The major benefits of Invisalign are esthetics and oral hygiene. Since the aligners are clear, they are virtual undetectable when worn. Also, since the aligners are removable, better oral hygiene can be achieved by brushing and flossing than compared with the hygiene problems that typically arise from treatment with metal braces.

Expected Timeline for Invisalign Treatment in Silver City

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on individual orthodontic needs. On average, Invisalign treatment takes approximately 12 to 18 months for adults, though some cases may be shorter or longer. For teenagers, treatment times can be similar to traditional braces, typically ranging from 18 to 24 months. The complexity of the case and adherence to wearing the aligners as directed also influence treatment duration. 

Qualifying for Invisalign: Are You an Ideal Candidate?

Here is a list of characteristics that make someone a good candidate for Invisalign:

  • Mild to moderate teeth misalignment: Invisalign is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate cases of teeth misalignment or crowding.
  • Committed to treatment: Invisalign requires commitment and consistency, as the aligners need to be worn for 20-22 hours per day to be effective.
  • Good dental health: Candidates should have good dental health, with no underlying issues such as gum disease or decay that need to be addressed prior to treatment.
  • Adults or older teenagers: Invisalign is generally recommended for adults or older teenagers whose teeth have finished growing.
  • Aesthetically-conscious: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for individuals who are concerned about the aesthetic impact of traditional metal braces.

Overall, Invisalign is a great option for many individuals who want to improve their smile and dental health. A consultation with our Silver City dentist can help determine if Invisalign is the right choice for your unique needs and goals.
