Nowadays, more and more people choose Invisalign clear aligners at The Smile Spa in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, over conventional metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners in Baton Rouge are discreet and don’t interrupt your life.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners have smooth, comfortable plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn.
We often use Invisalign treatment to correct mild to moderate misalignments, such as crowding or spacing. In some cases, Dr. Russo may use Invisalign to treat more complex dental issues like TMJ and sleep/ snoring problems which gives a bonus benefit of straight teeth.
The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made aligners that you wear for about two weeks each. As you progress through the treatment, your aligners will gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign treatment typically takes about 6,9 or 12 months, but this can vary depending on the case.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you like during treatment with or without the aligners in your mouth. They are also much more comfortable than traditional braces, and they won’t cause any irritation to your cheeks, gums or cavities on the teeth…
If you are considering orthodontic treatments, Invisalign may be a good option. Talk to Dr. Aimee Russo-Mounger to see if Invisalign is right for you.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign is different from other clear aligners in several ways. One benefit of Invisalign is that it is less likely to cause gum irritation. In addition, Invisalign does not require brackets or wires, making it more comfortable to wear. Invisalign is also almost invisible when worn, which makes it more aesthetically pleasing than other clear aligners. In addition, you can remove the Invisalign aligners for eating and brushing, making them more convenient to use than other clear aligners. Overall, Invisalign has many benefits that make it a good choice for people looking for a way to straighten their teeth.
The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign process begins with a virtual or face to face free consultation with an Invisalign-trained dentist, during which you will discuss your treatment goals and examine your teeth. Next, Invisalign and the doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan for you, which we will use to create your custom aligners. Invisalign is custom-made for each patient, using 3D computer imaging technology. We use a 3D scanner, I-Tero, to take images of your teeth, so no more gagging on impression material. During the consultation, we will take pictures and x-rays of your teeth and then use Invisalign’s digital software to create a personalized treatment plan. Once we finalize your treatment plan, Invisalign will use it to fabricate your custom aligners.
Throughout your treatment, you will need to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day. Some people can eat with them, which gives a great result but others prefer to remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You will need to visit your dentist every 4-6 weeks for checkups if possible to receive new aligners as your teeth continue to move into their final position. If this is not possible DR Russo allows virtual visits via zoom or facetime to make it easier for you to get the treatment you need. Invisalign treatment typically takes 9-15 months, but the exact length of treatment will depend on your case. By the end of treatment, you will have a straighter, healthier, more beautiful smile that you can be proud to show off!
