The details on Invisalign aligners
Invisalign clear aligners debuted in the late Nineties. An FDA-approved orthodontic system, these customized orthodontic appliances look and feel nothing like traditional metal braces. Smooth, thin and almost invisible, the typical 18 to 30 aligner pairs gently shift teeth into healthier, more attractive positions.
To qualify for Invisalign, come to our St. Clair Shores, MI, office for a consultation with Dr. Sam Malouf. He will examine your teeth and do a specialized three-dimensional scan of your teeth and bone structure. This information helps him formulate a care plan, and even previews your smile at each stage of treatment. Most plans finish in six to 18 months, a much shorter time than conventional braces require.
Going through your treatment sequence
Unlike conventional braces, your Invisalign aligners are removable. You take them out to eat meals and snacks, brush and floss and if you have a special occasion, such as a wedding or job interview. As long as you wear the appliances for the required 20 to 22 hours a day, your treatment will remain on track. Also, you must see Dr. Malouf once a month so he can check your progress and deliver the next aligner pairs in your treatment plan.
Problems corrected by Invisalign
Complex orthodontic issues require conventional treatment. However, Invisalign is the right choice for a wide range of smile alignment and bite issues, such as:
- Open bite
- Tooth tipping
- Tooth rotation
- Orthodontic relapse
- Protruding front teeth
Perhaps best of all, you'll sail through your treatment plan without feeling self-conscious or uncomfortable. The aligners are totally unnoticeable and have no sharp edges or protrusions to irritate your gums or lips.
