Needville Invisalign experts
Looking for a more flexible and discreet way to straighten your teeth? Invisalign may be the solution you've been looking for. At Mahlmann & Borders Orthodontics, we specialize in providing expert Invisalign treatment to teens and adults in Needville and the surrounding areas.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth and improve your oral health. At your initial consultation, we will take x-rays and digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your teeth. We will then use this image to design a custom aligner that is tailored to your unique dental needs. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable material that fits snugly over your teeth and are changed out every 1-2 weeks to keep up with your teeth as they move into their desired new positions.
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign treatment?
Besides being nearly invisible, one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign aligners is their removability. By design, you should remove your Invisalign aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. This means you'll never have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets or wires. They should also be removed before brushing and flossing. It's much easier to maintain a good oral hygiene routine because you can access your teeth more easily. Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is especially important during your orthodontic treatment.
No need to worry about any food restrictions since you can remove your aligners to eat and drink. This is pretty significant because food restrictions are often the biggest learning curve with traditional braces. With Invisalign, you can eat all of your favorite foods while working on your straighter smile. Aligners do need to be removed before you eat to avoid staining, and they should be cleaned and rinsed out with warm water at least once or twice a day.
Another benefit that comes with Invisalign is the absence of pesky wires to poke out and irritate your mouth, and there aren't any adjustment appointments. With Invisalign aligners, there are Invisalign wearers are still expected to attend follow-up visits about every 6-8 weeks so that we can be sure that your teeth are making good progress.
How does the Needville Invisalign system work?
Invisalign treatment is a simple and effective process. You will wear each aligner for approximately two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, or floss. As you progress through each set of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their new positions. We will schedule follow-up visits every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress and ensure that your treatment is on track.
It's important to note that every patient's response to Invisalign treatment will vary. Treatment time typically ranges from 6 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of your case and how closely you follow our recommended guidelines. To get the best results from your treatment, it's crucial to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours every day and follow our instructions closely. Skipping appointments or not changing your aligners as scheduled can significantly prolong your treatment time.
