Invisalign is a removable, invisible alternative to straighten your teeth. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Throughout your treatment, your teeth will progress along the predetermined course resulting in a beautiful smile.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
There are countless benefits to Invisalign, but perhaps the greatest benefit is the removability. Even though you can remove your trays for special occasions, Invisalign should be worn 22-23 hours a day as directed by Dr. Dunegan. Other benefits include:
Flexibility to eat or drink the same food your friends are eating
Ability to clean your teeth optimally which maximizes your oral health
No metal brackets or wires therefore less irritation
Merges well with extracurricular activities
Longer time between dental visits
What Happens After Invisalign Treatment?
Dr. Dunegan will recommend a retainer after completing orthodontic treatment, whether braces or Invisalign. A retainer is imperative to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back towards their initial position.
At Dunegan Orthodontics we recommend post treatment retainers for all of our Invisalign patients. Your custom made retainer will help maintain the end result of your beautiful smile. The benefits of our state-of-the-art technology allow us to create a more precise and comfortable fitting retainer. Retainers should be worn as consistently as possible as prescribed by your doctor.
