At Hebron Family Dental, we want to equip and come alongside our patients in giving them smiles they are proud of. Invisalign is one of the main ways in which we go about this! We get many questions about Invisalign, and there’s always more to learn. We hope this information will help you decide whether Invisalign is a good option for you!

Your new smile will be achieved through the three-dimensional mapping and 100-year-old science in Invisalign treatment. One of the best parts is that you can enjoy all the foods you usually eat and smile regularly throughout treatment! Orthodontics is often met with the apprehension of pain and treatment that lasts too long. Luckily, Invisalign involves three simple steps:

Step 1: Meet with your dentist and get a sneak peek at your new smile.

Your dentist can take a quick and precise scan of your teeth and map out a custom treatment plan just for you.

Step 2: Start transforming your smile right from your first fitting.

This is a critical step in the success of your treatment. Your dentist will ensure your aligners fit well, answer all your questions, and let you know what to expect. Once you start wearing your aligners, you will have regular check-ins with your dentist. Depending on the complexity of your case, you could finish your treatment in as little as six months! You will start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

Step 3: Keep your brand new smile beautiful!

It will be easy to keep the smile you love after transforming it with Invisalign! All you have to do is be consistent with wearing the retainer you are given after your treatment is complete.

One of the best parts about Invisalign is that it will not throw off your daily life! The progression of your smile will be apparent through every step of treatment. When wearing your aligners, you will be ready for anything. Make sure to take them out before eating or drinking, and brush your teeth before putting them back in. Wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours per day will give you the best results and shortest overall treatment time. If you are a parent, your child’s aligners will have blue compliance indicators, so you can ensure they are wearing them for the required time per day. Invisalign treatment is risk-free, straightforward, and an excellent option for all ages and stages of life!

How does Invisalign differ from traditional brackets-and-wires braces? There are three main differentiating factors:

1. Invisalign gets straight to work! You will get customized treatment based on years of research and no guesswork! The proper force is calculated for every tooth movement, so your teeth will move in the correct order.

2. Invisalign is more comfortable. SmartTrack material is used for comfort and the best results! You won’t have to worry about getting sores in your mouth due to irritation like you may with regular braces.

3. Invisalign gives you results that will last. Keeping your new smile is easy with the retainer provided after your treatment. This will keep your teeth from shifting over time.

We hope this was helpful regarding Invisalign and answered all your questions! It provides face-to-face care with your dentist, long-lasting restoration, gives you a customized plan for your smile needs, and uses the latest material for optimal results. These are some of the main reasons we love it and believe it truly stands out! If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation or have any questions, call Hebron Family Dental at (972) 820-8780. We would be happy to help you!
