The Invisalign Clear Braces Process In Grand Rapids
You may be wondering, “How does Invisalign® treatment work when you can’t even see it?”
With traditional metal braces, your teeth are aligned using brackets and wires that are gradually tightened during the course of the teeth straightening treatment. Invisalign® clear braces do not require any brackets or wires and can achieve the exact same results as traditional braces by using aligner trays.
How Do Invisalign® Clear Braces Work?
During your first visit to our Grand Rapids practice in Comstock Park after deciding that Invisalign® treatment is right for you, our caring team will then take x-rays, impressions, and pictures of your mouth.
From these x-rays and pictures, a 3D model simulation will be created, allowing you to see exactly how your teeth will move during each stage of treatment. The average treatment plan will take between 12-18 months, depending on your needs.
Once the treatment plan has been developed, your custom set of aligner trays will be created. Each aligner tray is made of smooth, comfortable material. You will wear your aligner trays for two weeks at a time, before switching them out for the next set.
Enjoy Your Orthodontic Treatment!
You will be able to see your teeth gradually move into alignment during the course of your teeth straightening treatment. The best part of choosing Invisalign® clear braces is that they are not only clear but also unnoticeable! No one but you will even know that you are wearing them.
One of the many benefits of wearing Invisalign® clear braces is that you can still eat whatever you want. When it is time to eat, simply remove your aligner trays and then pop them back in when you’re done. It’s just that easy!
You can still enjoy taffy, popcorn, and any other foods that would otherwise be forbidden if wearing traditional braces. Then at night, remove your aligner trays to brush and floss as you normally would.
