Invisalign treatment utilizes a series of clear aligners that can move the teeth into a straight position. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners put gentle pressure on the teeth to straighten them.
Most Invisalign treatment cases can be completed in six to 24 months. Regardless of your treatment length, it is essential that you wear your aligners as instructed, about 22-23 hours per day. Maintaining good oral health is also a vital aspect of your treatment, so be sure to brush well and visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.
Invisalign Treatment with Dr. Slutsky
Dr. Slutsky has extensive training and experience in clear aligner treatment to ensure your treatment success. However, if your aligners aren't working out for any reason, we will finish with metal braces at no additional cost.
Invisalign Treatment Benefits
- Effective: Invisalign clear aligners can treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
- Virtually invisible: Most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment, because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible!
- Comfortable: Invisalign clear aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like.
- Convenient: Once treatment is started, most visits are every eight weeks to check the movement of the teeth and that the aligners are fitting properly.
Is Invisalign right for you?
Although Invisalign can treat many types of malocclusions, there are certain cases that are better treated with traditional braces, such as patients with impacted teeth. To learn if Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Slutsky will evaluate your treatment needs to determine if Invisalign is right for you during your free consultation at our Northeast Philadelphia (Mayfair) or Bensalem, PA orthodontic office.
