Should you Consider Invisalign for your Orthodontic Treatment?

If you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment for your tooth alignment but are hesitant about committing to metal braces, there is another option available. While the orthodontists at Bandeen Orthodontics recommend the Damon system braces for most treatments, the orthodontists in Kalamazoo also can provide treatment with Invisalign’s system of clear aligners. Offering a tooth alignment treatment that’s perfect for those who prefer to have a clear smile with an almost invisible form of treatment, if you are considering getting Invisalign as opposed to traditional braces, here’s what you need to know.

What to Expect When Planning Your Treatment

For some patients, Invisalign’s aligners can offer a treatment that for some may be as effective as regular braces. From taking initial impressions, as well as X rays of your teeth, we will work with Invisalign to determine how long your orthodontic treatment will take. Depending on your treatment time, you will start with either two, three, or four sets of aligners that should be worn for about two weeks. From there, the orthodontists at Bandeen Orthodontics will work with you to schedule further appointments to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is on track, and to provide you with further aligners to help reach your treatment’s goals. After you have worn all of the aligners provided, impressions will be taken again to determine whether the tooth alignment treatment was successful, or if further care is needed. Invisalign braces may not be for every patient in need of orthodontic care, as it may not be an effective treatment for those who ‘s treatment goals are beyond the capabilities of an Invisalign treatment. At Bandeen Orthodontics, Invisalign isn’t our only treatment option, and we will inform you if another option would be more appropriate for your orthodontic treatment.

An Invisible Tooth Alignment Treatment

Invisalign’s aligners were designed to be invisible, making them a great option for those who would prefer to show off their smile without braces while still receiving orthodontic care. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are also easily removed, meaning that they won’t get in the way when eating, or when cleaning your teeth every morning and night. While Invisalign treatment times may last longer than traditional braces, Invisalign offers a good choice for eligible patients who are looking to improve their smile without the use of metal braces.

Like all other treatments, Invisalign carries a chance for both success and failure. While not all patients may be good candidates for an Invisalign treatment, those who are can find an effective, and invisible tooth alignment treatment.
