Invisalign is a type of orthodontics that utilizes a series of clear, comfortable aligners made out of 264 different types of plastic to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research as well as in practices across the country, including here at Steadman Family Dentistry in Richmond, VA.
The doctors may recommend Invisalign as an option to correct gum-related or bite-related issues such as crossbite, open bite, gaps between teeth, crowding, and deep over bites. If you are interested in correcting something from an aesthetic perspective, please feel free to ask for more information and to see if you would be a candidate.
Aligners are worn for 22 hours a day, with the exception of taking them out to brush and floss your teeth, and eat. These discreet aligners help you to maintain your oral hygiene better compared to traditional wire braces. Throughout the course of treatment, you will switch your Invisalign trays for a new set.
If you would like to learn how the aligners are made or any additional questions you may have, please feel free to ask our team or visit the Invisalign® website.
