We all dream of a beautiful smile, but some of us dread the idea of clunky braces with wires and brackets. Luckily, Invisalign has made achieving that perfect smile easier and more comfortable than ever before, and the team at Berwick Orthodontics are here to help you achieve your new smile! Let’s dive into the fascinating world of Invisalign and discover how this clear aligner system works wonders for people of all ages.
Getting your Invisalign
The first step after having your consultation and deciding to use Invisalign to achieve your perfect smile, is to have a digital scan taken off your teeth. (No more gooey impressions!) This scan is super quick and easy!
Once your scan is complete, Dr Theresia and Dr Andrea use high-tech computer software to plan your smile journey. They create a 3D model of your teeth and figure out exactly how your teeth need to move to give you that perfect grin.
Custom-Made Clear Aligners
Instead of wires, Invisalign uses custom-made clear plastic aligners. These aligners are clear trays that fit snugly over your teeth. They’re so clear that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic. Say goodbye to the irritation and sore spots that can come with traditional braces.
Gradual, Gentle Movement
Invisalign doesn’t force your teeth into place all at once. It’s all about gradual, gentle movements. You wear each set of aligners for about a week. During this time, the aligners apply just the right amount of pressure to nudge your teeth in the right direction.
One of the amazing things about Invisalign is how your smile evolves over time. Your treatment plan is tailor-made just for you. It considers your unique smile and the changes it needs.
You’ll visit your orthodontist at Berwick Orthodontics every now and then for check-ups. They will make sure your smile is on track, and if needed, they’ll give you new sets of aligners. It’s like having a smile coach by your side.
