Invisalign® is a global leader in clear aligners, and the team at Monarch Family Dental of Westminster is proud to offer this best-in-class solution for patients who want to get their teeth straightened. Dental aligners have come a long way, and thanks to their patented SmartTrack materials, Invisalign offers a solution that is comfortable, effective and delivers results quickly.
What are Invisalign dental aligners?
Invisalign are clear orthodontic aligners used to adjust the position of a person’s teeth. Because they are clear, Invisalign aligners are discreet removable braces that can be worn during the daytime, often going unnoticed as they are virtually invisible. They can be easily removed and taken out while you brush your teeth or eat your food.
Invisalign dental aligners can help to correct a number of orthodontic issues that can help a person to regain an even, balanced smile.
If you want to straighten your teeth without having to worry about brackets or metal wires, then Invisalign is one of the most trusted brands in the world. At Monarch, our team of trained Invisalign professionals offers a free initial consultation to help you quickly and easily understand if this is the best option for you.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Every patient’s teeth are unique, so the treatment times will vary from one patient to the next. There is a five-step process that is followed for all Invisalign treatments. Here’s an overview of what that looks like:
Make an Appointment with Dr. Jorge Rojas
Contact our team to book a free initial consultation with one of our Invisalign professionals. During this appointment, we can help you decide the most suitable course of treatment. We will also take bite impressions that will be sent directly to the team at Invisalign.
Your Dental Aligners are Made
Utilizing 3D imaging technology, your bite impressions will be transformed into a bespoke series of removable, clear aligners. Depending on the individual needs of your teeth, you might have as few as 12 sets in your series or as many as 48.
You Receive Your First Set of Invisalign Aligners
On your next appointment at our clinic, you will receive your initial set of dental aligners. We will answer any questions you might have and ensure you know exactly how to get the best from them. It’s likely you will be given a few extra sets to wear prior to your return to the clinic for a follow-up appointment.
Wearing Your New Aligners
The next phase is up to you. You will typically wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks. As we would have discussed with you at your step 3 appointment, you can remove your aligners only for drinking, eating, brushing, and flossing.
We will usually book you in to see us at 4-6 week intervals so that we can check how you are progressing and to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected.
The total time of treatment can last for anything between 6-18 months. However, it is possible that you will start to see results around 3 months and onwards.
Finalize Your Treatment
When you have worn each set of Invisalign aligners, your treatment will be complete. Once done, to help you retain your newly straight smile, you will be given retainers to wear during the night for a period of six months.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Every patient’s teeth are unique, so the treatment times will vary from one patient to the next. There is a five-step process that is followed for all Invisalign treatments; here’s an overview of what that looks like:
Proven Solution for Multiple Dental Challenges
Invisalign Aligners have been used by over 10 million patients worldwide. They have been successfully placed to remedy alignment issues created by:
- Crowded Teeth
- Open Bite
- Gap Teeth
Comfortable and Easy to Wear
For most patients, these aligners will be in place for anything between 12-18 months. As such, they need to be comfortable. Invisalign uses a unique material called SmartTrack that was created for this purpose. Every set of aligners are tailormade to fit your mouth, and you are provided with fresh sets to use throughout the course of your treatment.
Because you can remove your aligners easily when you need to drink, eat, or clean your teeth, it makes Invisalign a great choice for those who value convenience and comfort.
They are Virtually Invisible
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign’s clear aligners are undetectable to the untrained eye. This system uses no brackets or wires and is designed with discretion in mind. If you want to get your teeth straightened without people noticing, Invisalign’s clear aligners are ideal.
Before your treatment begins, Dr. Jorge Rojas will be able to present you with a digital representation of what your teeth will look like once the treatment is complete.
