If you’re looking for an innovative way to straighten your teeth, there’s no better option than Invisalign at Fountain Plaza Family Dental Wallace J. Bellamy, DMD! Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that allows you to get a perfect smile without the need for traditional braces. We’ll explore how Invisalign works, how it can improve your smile, and why it’s the number one solution for straightening the smiles of our Elk Grove, CA patients!
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a patented smile straightening system that features a series of clear, custom-fitted aligners. Each treatment plan utilizes between 18 and 30 sets of aligners, which are worn for two weeks each before being swapped out for the next set in the sequence. When worn in order, the aligners exert gentle pressure on the teeth, gradually shifting them into proper alignment.
Benefits Of Invisalign®
The primary benefit of Invisalign is that it offers a discreet way to straighten your teeth, as the aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so you can take them out to eat your favorite foods and brush your teeth without compromising the treatment. Finally, Invisalign aligners are highly comfortable to wear and have no metal wires or brackets that can irritate the soft tissue of your mouth.
Overall, Invisalign is an extremely popular choice for patients seeking a convenient, concealable, and comfortable alternative to traditional braces.
At Fountain Plaza Family Dental Wallace J. Bellamy, DMD, we’ll begin the Invisalign process with a free consultation; this gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the treatment while we determine if Invisalign is the best fit for you. If it is, we’ll take detailed scans of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign lab, where your custom aligners will be created.
Once we receive your aligners, you will come into the office to have the first set fitted and receive instructions on how to use and care for them. You’ll need to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day in order to get the best results. Every two weeks, you’ll replace your aligners with new ones from the sequence.
We will schedule periodic follow-ups throughout the course of treatment to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your plan.
Am I A Candidate?
Invisalign is a great way to get a straightened smile, but it isn’t the right choice for everyone. During your free consultation, we’ll take an in-depth look at your teeth and determine if Invisalign is an appropriate option for you. We will be checking for the presence of any oral health conditions and also the degree of misalignment present in your teeth.
Invisalign is often used to treat minor or moderate cases of misaligned, crowded, and gapped teeth; if you have a severe orthodontic condition, Invisalign may not be the best solution for you.
The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for your smile is to schedule a free consultation with us at Fountain Plaza Family Dental Wallace J. Bellamy, DMD. We’ll be happy to work with you to determine the best solution for your smile. Reach out today to schedule!
