Bloomsburg and Danville PA
Achieving straight teeth is possible without resorting to metal braces. Many adults desire perfectly straight teeth but do not want to deal with the hassle or embarrassment of traditional braces. Thanks to Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams by discreetly straightening your teeth using clear aligners. This treatment is only offered by Invisalign providers, such as Hamilton Dental Care in Bloomsburg. Under the dentist’s direct supervision, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment over a period of months. Most adults achieve results in as little as 12-18 months, although individual treatment plans may vary.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign has been around since 1997 and is trusted by many dentists and orthodontists. Invisalign uses clear removable aligners to apply precise pressure on your teeth, slowly aligning them. The same mechanics are used with traditional braces, although the pressure is applied using metal brackets and wires that are not removable until the conclusion of your treatment, which can be a couple of years or longer.
What does Invisalign treatment involve?
You start with a consultation with a Bloomsburg Invisalign provider. We assess your smile needs to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If so, we begin treatment by taking digital scans of your teeth, which are sent to a lab where your aligners are fabricated. Throughout treatment, you will wear your set of aligners for several weeks, returning to our office at that point to receive your next set of aligners. The number of aligners needed for your entire treatment will vary.
You’ll wear your aligners day and night, or at least 22 hours per day. Remove them when eating or drinking anything other than water, and when you need to brush and floss your teeth. Otherwise, plan on wearing your aligners all of the time, although they can be removed for occasional special events.
What does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign treats many of the same orthodontic issues as traditional braces including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Crooked teeth
