Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is a convenient alternative to metal braces and straightens crooked teeth using clear plastic aligners instead of brackets and wires. Dr. Corey Woods is pleased to offer Invisalign clear braces for adults of all ages at his Albuquerque dental office.
The problem with misaligned teeth is that they detract from your smile and make maintaining optimal oral health a challenge. Flossing between tightly crowded or overlapping teeth can be all but impossible, which leads to gingivitis and is also a precursor to cavities.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
Invisalign straightens teeth using clear plastic aligners that move your teeth into the proper position step by step. An Invisalign lab custom fabricates your aligners based on the treatment plan developed by Dr. Woods.
When they are ready, you will return to our Albuquerque dental office so we can give you your first sets of clear aligners. You should wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day for 2-3 weeks, then graduate to the next set. Your Invisalign treatment continues in this way until you have worn all the aligners we prescribed for you, and your teeth look straight and beautiful.
Invisalign Aligners are Comfortable
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic material, so you don’t have to worry about irritation from metal brackets and wires. They are also crystal-clear and fit your teeth snugly, so most people won’t notice that you are wearing them.
Remove Invisalign Aligners for Meals and Oral Hygiene
Our patients also appreciate the convenience of Invisalign treatment because they can remove the aligners for oral hygiene and eat their favorite meals. You can brush twice a day and floss once as you usually do, promoting healthier teeth and gums.
Your oral hygiene at home is essential to prevent gum disease and cavities from forming during treatment. Our experienced staff will give you recommendations to help you maintain your oral health throughout treatment.
Wear Your Invisalign Aligners for 22 Hours a Day
Success with Invisalign requires you to be motivated and engaged in the process. For the fastest results, you should wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. Treatment times with Invisalign vary, but most people will be in active treatment for about 12-18 months.
