Spring brings warm weather, outdoor activities and plenty of reasons to smile. However, if you have misaligned teeth or a crooked smile, you might feel less inclined to show off your grin. Some individuals resort to covering or concealing their teeth, or may avoid social situations altogether. At Tusculum Dental Care, we believe everyone should be confident in your smile. That’s why our range of services includes orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign. Read on as we explore how Invisalign can straighten crooked teeth without the need for traditional braces.

Unlocking the magic of Invisalign

While traditional braces are often associated with the teenage years, many patients pursue orthodontic treatment later in life. In fact, according to data compiled by the American Association of Orthodontists, 25% of all orthodontic patients today are adults. However, many adults might be hesitant to undergo treatment because they are wary of the social stigma of wearing braces as an adult. Thankfully, advancements in the dental field have introduced clear aligner orthodontics as an inconspicuous and effective alternative. One of these methods of aligner therapy is Invisalign. It utilizes 3D technology to design a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. It does so by using clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth, making them nearly invisible to others. These aligners apply gentle pressure to straighten your teeth. Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners as treatment continues.

Consistent wear for optimal results

To achieve the desired outcome, it’s crucial to wear your Invisalign aligners as recommended. Ideally, you should keep them on for at least 22 hours each day, removing them only for meals, when drinking something other than water or when cleaning your teeth. Deviating from this routine or wearing the same aligners beyond the suggested two-week period can slow down progress and extend the time of treatment.

How long does treatment take?

The duration of your Invisalign treatment can vary based on several factors, such as your current oral health and the extent of correction needed. While each case is unique, many Invisalign patients can complete their treatment within 12-18 months. The exact timeline will vary depending on how your teeth respond to the treatment and your adherence to wearing the aligners as directed.
