If you have a crooked teeth, maybe you’ve considered corrective adult braces in the past. For many adults, the main deal breaker when it comes to adult braces is a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. Traditional adult braces can also require up to two years of treatment, leaving in you uncomfortable for a long period of time.
But advances in orthodontic technology are changing the way we look at at adult braces. At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR we’re proud to offer one of the most discreet and comfortable options available for adult braces: Invisalign.
Invisalign orthodontics is a completely metal and wire free system. Instead, Invisalign uses transparent aligners which fit comfortably and discreetly on your teeth. These aligners are designed to reposition your teeth in incremental steps; you wear each aligner for two weeks and then graduate onto the next aligner.
Treatment with Invisalign is much faster than treatment with traditional adult orthodontics. For most of our patients, Invisalign delivers the results they desire in about twelve months. Treatment times may vary by a few months, but Invisalign is one of fastest methods available in comprehensive orthodontics. You just wear your aligner for around 22 hours a day, removing the aligner when it come time to eat or brush your teeth.
Invisalign has quickly proven to be an extremely popular option for adult patients. Invisalign is discreet; the transparent aligners are hardly visible when you smile or speak. Patients feel more confident in Invisalign, because they don’t have to worry about walking into their workplace with a mouth full of metal brackets and wires!
Unlike other short-term options for adult braces, Invisalign can treat more than just minor issues with your smile. In addition to effectively treating things like small gaps between your teeth, and misaligned teeth, Invisalign can correct issues with your bite. If you are suffering from gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, cross bites, or crowded teeth, you no longer have to use traditional metal braces for your treatment! Invisalign can correct all of these issues and more thanks to advances in Invisalign technology.
If you’re interested in Invisalign, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR. We’ll examine your teeth to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. On occasion, we’ll need to perform other procedures (such as removing tooth decay) before you can begin treatment with Invisalign.
If we determine you’re a candidate for Invisalign, we will begin by making a 3D model of your teeth using digital scanning technology. This information is then inputted into the amazing Invisalign Outcome Simulator, which allows us to model every step of your treatment. We can show you a preview of what your smile will look like after treatment with Invisalign! That mean’s there’s no risk – you will know exactly how your smile will look before you even begin treatment.
Once you’re satisfied with your smile preview, we will send your information to the Invisalign lab. The dental lab will produce your series of custom aligners based-off the exact specifications of your teeth. You’ll return to our office for a fitting, and before you know you’ll be on your way to a brand-new smile!
While you’re undergoing treatment with Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about any painful readjustments or uncomfortable appointments. You just come in (about every six weeks) and we’ll ensure that Invisalign is working to perfection.
Invisalign has helped us deliver amazing results to countless patients. We can use Invisalign to help you if you want one or two teeth realigned, or if you need a solution for more serious issues like problems with your bite. Invisalign is a state-of-the-art replacement for adult braces.
After you’ve finished your Invisalign treatment, we’ll provide you with a comfortable retainer to wear during the evening. This retainer helps ensure your new smile stays in place, and you look wonderful!
