What is Invisalign?
To straighten your smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners instead of traditional metal braces. Invisalign is made with highly effective 3-D computer imaging technology that allows you to view your virtual treatment plan and see how your teeth will look when you complete your Invisalign treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
You wear each set of Invisalign aligners around the clock for about two weeks at a time, removing them only during mealtimes and to brush and floss. As you progress during your Invisalign treamtent, your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to the final positions Dr. Povolny prescribes. You'll visit us at Povolny Orthodontics in Tukwila about once every six weeks so we can make sure that your treatment is progressing as it should. On average, total treatment times last anywhere from four to 18 months and people typically wear between 8 and 30 aligners, but both numbers will vary in each case.
Why would I want Invisalign?
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, brushing, flossing and eating are much less of a hassle than with braces! the aligners are also comfortable, since Invisalign doesn't use metal, which can cause mouth abrasions to people during traditional braces treatment. No metal and wires usually means you spend less time at Povolny Orthodontics in Tukwila getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
