An Invisalign Treatment Plan that is made for you
Before a treatment plan can be created, your Invisalign Provider, Corne Smith Dentistry, will take an impression of your teeth to check whether they can be straightened using the Invisalign System. Once confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will then be developed.
When you begin your Invisalign treatment, you will wear each set of custom-made aligners in two-week increments. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
During this time you will have occasional check-ups with Dr. Corne Smith, your Invisalign Provider in order to monitor your progress and ensure you are comfortable with the treatment.
Invisalign is different to traditional teeth straightening treatments. Using innovative technology that we invented and continue to evolve, Invisalign comes as a series of clear removable aligners that straighten your teeth, little by little, and unlike fixed braces, there are no wires or brackets. This means there is no metal and they are nearly invisible when you wear them.
In when you want them in. Out when you don’t.
Fixed braces can only be removed by trained professionals – this can hinder your ability to clean your teeth and gums effectively, and may limit what you can eat comfortably.
Because Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time during treatment, you can eat whatever you want, maintain good oral hygiene, and choose to remove them briefly for special occasions such as weddings or big meetings. Your lifestyle remains intact.
But it is important to wear your Invisalign aligners for the recommended time prescribed by your dentist.
Can Invisalign work for you?
Invisalign treats a range of straightening issues, ranging from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.
Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Invisalign.
Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.
Cross bites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.
Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
Under bites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
