Invisalign® is the best solution for crooked or misaligned teeth, and if the thought of wearing conventional wires and brackets is bringing you down, it’s time to contact the professionals from Maplewood Laser Dentistry Wichita Falls, TX.
If Maplewood Laser Dentistry has given you the green light for Invisalign®, not all patients are good candidates, then you and Dr. Guess will discuss your treatment plan.
In order to be a good candidate for Invisalign®, your teeth and gums need to be healthy. If Maplewood Laser Dentistry detects tooth decay or gum disease that will need to be taken care of before your Invisalign® treatment.
Invisalign® is perfect for patients who have rotated or tipped teeth. If you have small gaps between your teeth, or if you are complaining of crowding, Invisalign® could be the perfect fit.
During your Invisalign® consultation, Maplewood Laser Dentistry will take digital photos and x-rays before making an impression of your teeth. All of you information will be sent to the dental lab where an exact mold will be made for your Invisalign® clear aligners.
Depending on your custom blueprint, you could be given anywhere between 11 and 31 clear plastic aligners that will be swapped out every seven to 14 days.
Unlike old school wires and brackets, Invisalign® allows you the freedom to brush and floss without the aligners. Your clear plastic alignersare removed when you brush and floss helping prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Your Invisalign® aligners are worn 20 to 22 hours each day allowing you to keep your teeth clean.
Old school wires and brackets are susceptible to tooth decay. Unfortunately, conventional braces cannot be removed making it difficult to brush and floss. With Invisalign®, you can keep your teeth and gums healthy during your treatment.
