Invisalign Kingston, PA

If you’re interested in straightening your teeth, addressing an issue with your bite, or closing gaps between your teeth, Invisalign clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. Learn more about Invisalign below, and schedule your appointment with Brand Dental in Kingston, PA today to discuss your treatment options for realigning your teeth.

    What is Invisalign?

    Invisalign is a brand name for an orthodontic alternative to braces. Instead of using standard components like brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth gradually. Invisalign can treat crowding and bite issues and is an excellent option for teens and adults.

    How Does Invisalign Work?

    If you’re not happy with your bite or how crowded your teeth are, that can easily be addressed with Invisalign. Here’s how the Invisalign process works:

    The first thing you’ll need to do is schedule an exam to discuss your dental concerns. Before we start any orthodontic treatment, we want to make sure your teeth are clean and healthy.

    We‘ll take some digital images of your teeth so your dentist can map out your Invisalign treatment.

    Invisalign experts will create your custom aligners from a BPA-free material at the Invisalign lab. Once made, they will be sent to our Kingston, PA office for your dentist to deliver to you.

    The Invisalign trays will be tried in your mouth, and your dentist will check the fit. If the trays seem a little tight at first, don’t worry, that’s completely normal. The aligners apply small amounts of pressure to your teeth which will ultimately move them into the correct position.

    For the best results, you’ll need to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. Every 1-2 weeks, as directed by your dentist, you’ll change to a new set of trays. Each new set of aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, following your treatment plan, until you reach your ideal smile.

    While in treatment, your dentist will monitor your progress every step of the way. Depending on your personal needs, your case will be complete within 12 to 18 months, and you can start flashing your perfect smile.

    Benefits of Invisalign

    Besides being a discrete way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is a trustworthy brand approved by dentists to treat several orthodontic conditions and produce lasting results. Realigning your teeth with Invisalign will not only create a beautiful smile but is also beneficial for the health of your teeth and gum tissue. Many people prefer these clear aligners, which are hardly noticeable compared to traditional metal braces.

    What to Expect

    Wearing the invisible trays is easy to adapt to and shouldn’t interfere with everyday life. You’ll need to take the trays out while eating and drinking anything other than water, but besides that, it’s much easier to clean your teeth compared to having traditional braces. Treatment times are also shorter with Invisalign, as long as you follow all the instructions your dentist provides.
