Do you want to straighten your smile but don’t want braces? Try Invisalign. Invisalign is a modern cosmetic dental treatment that uses clear trays to realign teeth. Compared to traditional orthodontic appliances, Invisalign aligners can offer efficient care and quicker treatment times. Dr. Michael Sesi collaborates with patients to deliver custom Invisalign treatment in his Hartland, MI dental office. He works with his patients to determine if Invisalign aligners are the best option for their smiles.
Invisalign Treatment in Hartland, MI
To create custom-made aligners, we take dental impressions and scans to create an image of patients’ current smiles. Using digital images of the smile, we can plan how the teeth move into a straighter position. We send the dental impressions to a dental lab, where technicians craft clear Invisalign trays.
Each pair of aligners are different as they shift teeth into a better-aligned position. We ensure that the primary aligners fit and will provide patients with subsequent aligners during their treatment. Patients need to remove their Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Removing the alignes prevents staining and damage to the appliance. Caring for the Invisalign aligners also ensures that patients stay on schedule.
Do you want Invisalign but want to know more? Learn about Invisalign with answers to these popular questions:
How does Invisalign compare to braces?
Invisalign aligners allow patients to clean their smiles without brackets and wires in the way. Because the aligners can be removed, patients can also eat foods they love without restrictions. Patients need to visit the dentist to tighten their braces brackets or add new wires. Sometimes, the new wires can poke and irritate sensitive gum tissue. Invisalign aligners fit the contour of the smile and do not require as many adjustments.
When will I see results from Invisalign?
Patients will begin to notice a difference in their smiles three to four weeks after they begin Invisalign. Wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day ensures that the aligners remain effective. It may take longer for patients to see results if they do not wear their aligners for the appropriate amount of time each day.
Can Invisalign damage teeth?
Invisalign aligners will only damage teeth if patients do not wear their aligners properly. Additionally, Invisalign treatment does not cause pain for patients. While patients may experience some soreness as they accumulate to each new aligner, they will not feel any pain.
Is Invisalign right for me?
We recommend Invisalign for patients who do not have extensive orthodontic problems. Metal braces and other oral appliances are better options for patients with overcrowding, underbites, overbites, crossbites, or spacing issues. Contact our office and we will examine your smile to determine your candidacy for Invisalign treatment.
