Are you a patient who feels as though you could have benefitted from braces years ago? Do you think you are too old now to fix crowding or crookedness? Twin Dental offers you a unique solution with the same results. Invisalign is a clear, plastic alternative to the wires and brackets characteristic of traditional orthodontic work. These smooth, custom-made appliances are designed to gently shift your teeth to the desired position without the bulk or manual tightening.
In our Cincinnati office, we hold consultations with interested patients to determine whether Invisalign would be an appropriate treatment for their specific circumstances. If so, we begin designing individualized treatment plans. The basis for planning comes from x-rays, pictures and impressions of the current state of the teeth. In order to achieve timely results, new aligners are provided to the patient every two weeks, gradually moving towards the desired result. Total aligners can range from 18-30. The full length of treatment varies, though adults average 10-14 months.
Patients are instructed to wear aligners throughout the day, only removing them for eating, drinking and brushing/flossing. This means the virtually invisible aligners should be in place for 20-22 hours each day. Checkups with our staff are normally recommended every six weeks. At the completion of your Invisalign treatment, Vivera retainers are usually suggested for maintenance purposes. To discuss technical and financial aspects of Invisalign, contact Twin Dental. It just may be the tool you have been looking for to achieve a straight, confident smile.
