Invisalign® Aligners Can Transform Your Smile in Less Time and with Less Hassle
Imagine having a beautiful, straight smile in only 12 – 18 months. Invisalign aligners can transform your smile quickly and with very little hassle. Some people report seeing a difference in their teeth alignment after only a couple of weeks of consistent wear.
Dr. Angela Ferrari at KFA Dental Excellence in Farmingdale, NY will meet with you to discuss if Invisalign aligners are the right choice to transform your smile. Many people have misaligned teeth from genetics, trauma to the face, thumb sucking, or tooth loss. If Dr. Ferrari feels that Invisalign aligners are a viable option for your needs, she will create a treatment plan and discuss your goals with you.
The Invisalign system can effectively straighten teeth and give you a beautiful smile without the pain and unsightly appearance of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners fit comfortably in your mouth without cutting your cheeks, rubbing, or poking your teeth and mouth. Most wearers forget they even have Invisalign aligners. Also, when you smile, Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable.
All about Invisalign aligners
Dr. Ferrari at KFA Dental Excellence in Farmingdale, NY will create impressions of your teeth to have your first set of Invisalign aligners created. Once you receive your Invisalign aligners, you’ll need to wear them for 20 to 22 hours per day to help achieve results quickly. You’ll need to move to your next set of aligners after follow-up appointments every 4 – 6 weeks with Dr. Ferrari. She will evaluate the movement of your teeth to determine the progress being made and create new impressions of your teeth for your next set of Invisalign aligners. Everyone’s needs and goals are different.
After about 12 – 18 months, your teeth should have moved into alignment, and you can have the smile you have been dreaming about. However, you’ll still need to maintain the results, or your teeth will move back into their previous positions.
Dr. Ferrari will fit you for retainers to keep your teeth in their proper positions. The custom-made retainers are fashioned from digital impressions of your teeth that are taken when you complete your Invisalign treatment. At your annual dental exam, Dr. Ferrari will carefully watch the alignment of your teeth and bite to ensure that the optimum placement of your teeth continues.
Do Invisalign aligners cause pain?
Traditional braces can cause pain and discomfort. Luckily, Invisalign aligners do not hurt. Your teeth might feel sore when you first wear a new tray, but the slight discomfort goes away within a day or two. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers to gain relief.
With persistence and patience, Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth in only 12 – 18 months. If you consistently wear the aligners for the required 20 – 22 hours per day, your teeth will start to move into a proper position. In most cases, you’ll need to change your trays every two weeks to ensure proper movement of the teeth, so you attain a perfect smile in time.
