Invisalign: Straighten Your Smile with Effective Orthodontics
Clear, comfortable plastic aligners slip over your smile and gently push your teeth into their correct position. Achieve a comprehensive realignment in just 12-18 months!
The tried and true method of realigning your teeth. Square brackets and round wires can get the job done for even the toughest cases.
Crooked or crowded teeth can ruin your smile. But if you are an adult or an older teen, you may feel just as embarrassed thinking about correcting your teeth over a period of years with traditional wire braces. The thought of wearing an embarrassing treatment for two or three years is unacceptable!
Fortunately, dental technology now offers wonderful alternatives to wire braces with Invisalign. Our Edgewood, KY dentists has invested in new orthodontic options to give you the results you want in the least amount of time possible. Take a look at how this clear braces can change your smile for the better!
The Invisalign Process
After Dr. McMahon has approved you as a candidate for Invisalign, you will start the exciting Invisalign process. First, he will take digital X-rays and use our iTero intraoral digital scanner to design your Invisalign aligners. iTero technology provides real-time 3D impressions of your mouth that we can adjust right here in our office. We’ll send these images and impressions to the Invisalign lab to give you the best fitting aligners possible. We can even give you a preview beforehand to see what your teeth will look like after your Invisalign treatment.
From these images and iTero impressions, the lab will create a series of clear plastic aligners that will adjust your teeth over time. You’ll change out your aligners every 2 weeks until your perfect smile is achieved, but you’ll only need to come to our Edgewood, KY dentists office for Dr. McMahon to see you about every 6 weeks.
Invisalign’s plastic aligners make it a comfortable alternative to wire braces. You don’t have to worry about any brackets irritating your mouth. Because of our iTero scanner, they will fit you perfectly, increasing your comfort even more.
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign versus wire braces is that it is almost completely invisible! Most people will never notice you are wearing braces, so you don’t have to be embarrassed to get the smile you’ve always wanted. It also means you don’t have to worry that others will be staring at your braces – they will only see you, not a mouth full of metal. Women can enjoy wearing the jewelry they want without trying to coordinate with metal braces.
How does Invisalign work? Unlike wire braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. Simply take them out when you eat – no need to pass up the corn on the cob or steak! It won’t have any brackets or wires to get stuck in! You can also remove the aligners when you brush and floss, saving you literally hours a month that you would spend cleaning your wire braces with special picks and brushes. The removable aligners also prevent marks that wire braces leave on teeth after they are removed.
