What is Invisalign?
Orthodontic services can help you achieve a straighter smile. We offer Invisalign, which is a solution that gradually shifts the placement of your teeth to a preferred position. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign treatment can straighten your teeth. What’s the best part? Your lifestyle isn’t interrupted, meaning you can still enjoy the activities you love and the foods you enjoy. It is also easier to brush and floss, for better oral health, than metal braces.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
We recommend Invisalign for teens and adults that are looking for an alternative to traditional braces. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign is to visit Shawky Dentistry for a complimentary consultation. We would be happy to help you determine the best options for your smile.
What should I expect when I get Invisalign?
If you decide to pursue Invisalign treatment, Dr. Shawky will then take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create a customized and personalized treatment plan. Depending on your desired goals, treatment length could vary. You will wear your clear aligners for 23 hours a day for best results, and change your aligners every 2 weeks to a new set. When you start wearing each new set of aligners, you may feel a little extra pressure or discomfort for the first few days, which is totally normal. You will be required to take your aligners out to eat and drink, then brush your teeth before putting them back in. Rinse your aligners every night and brush them gently with your toothbrush to keep them fresh and clean.
