Adult Invisalign Treatment In Bellefontaine, Beavercreek & Springfield
Many adults think that it’s too late to straighten their smile, that the time for braces has passed and that they simply have to live with their teeth the way they are. The truth is, you can benefit from orthodontic treatment at any age! At Dhingra Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer great options for adult orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign for adults.
Invisalign clear aligners use cutting-edge technology to straighten your teeth without interrupting your lifestyle. These removable aligners straighten your smile more gently than braces, while allowing you to enjoy the activities and foods you love. They are the perfect solution for adults looking to improve their smile!
What Is Adult Invisalign & How Does It Work?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces. These custom-made aligners fit over your teeth and gently adjust their position over time. Invisalign braces for adults are a great orthodontic solution, especially considering that the aligners are virtually invisible, so most people won’t even realize you have them on!
Invisalign Treatment Process
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with our amazing Invisalign-trained doctors: Dr. Seema Dhingra and Dr. Azie Dhingra. We will then create advanced 3D images of your teeth using the iTero® Digital Scanning System. This allows us to map out a precise customized digital treatment plan that details the step-by-step transformation of your smile as well as the length of your treatment.
Your custom-made aligners will be created using Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material, which is virtually invisible. Once you have your aligners, you will wear each set for 20-22 hours a day, changing to a new set every 1-2 weeks. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, following your treatment plan until you reach your perfect smile!
Main Benefits of Invisalign For Adults
Invisalign is a great option for adults looking to straighten their smiles. The aligners are barely noticeable and involve a treatment process that is far easier to manage than traditional braces. Some of the main benefits to adult Invisalign include:
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is an option for almost anyone, as it can address a wide range of alignment issues including small gaps, crooked or crowded teeth, overbites, underbites and more. Some serious dental malocclusions, however, may require more specialized treatment that limits the ability to get Invisalign for adults.
Truly, the main factor in an ideal candidate is their ability to adhere to Invisalign guidelines based on their lifestyle: Wearing them 20-22 hours a day, keeping them clean, removing them for meals, etc.
