Our practice offers Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, which is designed to straighten teeth, correct bad bites, and result in a healthier, more beautiful smile. If you’ve been going back and forth about whether Invisalign is the right choice for you, we’re here to provide answers to your most pressing questions.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is suitable for a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. It’s a great option for both teens and adults who prefer a more subtle orthodontic solution.
How Does Invisalign Work?
During your initial consultation, our skilled orthodontists will create a personalized treatment plan using advanced 3D imaging technology. Based on this plan, a series of aligners will be fabricated to shift your teeth into alignment quickly and effectively.
Are Invisalign Aligners Comfortable?
Absolutely! Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional braces. While it can take a little while to get used to at first, most patients report a comfortable fit throughout their treatment.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case. On average, treatment can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months. Our Jonesboro dental team will provide you with an educated estimate during your consultation.
Can I Remove the Aligners During Treatment?
Yes, one of the major advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss, allowing for better oral hygiene and more dietary freedom compared to traditional braces.
How Often Do I Need to Visit the Dentist During Invisalign Treatment?
Regular check-ups are important to monitor your progress. Typically, you’ll have appointments every six to eight weeks to receive your new sets of aligners and allow us to track your orthodontic progress.
Will Invisalign Affect My Lifestyle?
Clear aligners are nearly invisible, so you can enjoy your daily activities without feeling self-conscious about your appearance. They are also comfortable and easy to maintain, fitting seamlessly into your lifestyle.
