What to Know Before Choosing Invisalign 

Invisalign® aligners have revolutionized orthodontic treatment, offering a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. If you’re considering Invisalign® aligners to straighten your smile, you’ve come to the right place! We’ll delve into everything you need to know before embarking on your Invisalign® journey with Wired Orthodontics. From understanding the treatment process to maintaining your aligners, our team is here to help you every step of the way. 

What Are Invisalign® Aligners? 

Invisalign® aligners are clear, custom-made trays designed to gradually shift your teeth into alignment. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice among adults and teens. 

Deciding Between Braces and Invisalign Treatment 

Invisalign aligners may not be suitable for complex orthodontic issues that require the precise control of braces. The good news is, Wired Orthodontics offers a variety of braces options that may be a better fit for your unique situation! Damon braces are often more comfortable than traditional braces and can even align your teeth faster for shorter treatment in some cases. Ceramic or clear braces offer a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces, so you can still effectively align your teeth without drawing unwanted attention to your in-treatment smile. Ultimately, the choice between braces and Invisalign aligners depends on your unique needs, lifestyle, and treatment goals. Dr. Stansbury, Dr. Santos, and Dr. Syvertsen can help determine the right treatment for you during your initial consultation. 

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign Treatment? 

Several factors can help determine if you’re a good candidate for this innovative treatment. Firstly, if you have mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as crooked teeth, gaps, or minor bite problems, Invisalign aligners could be an excellent option. Additionally, candidates for Invisalign aligners should be committed to wearing the aligners as directed by our orthodontist, typically for 20-22 hours a day. It’s also essential to have good oral hygiene habits and be diligent about caring for your aligners to ensure the best results. However, for more severe orthodontic issues requiring precise control and adjustments, traditional braces might be recommended. Scheduling a consultation with us is the best way to determine if Invisalign aligners in Austin are the right fit for your smile goals and needs. 

The Benefits of Choosing Invisalign® Aligners 

One of the primary advantages of Invisalign® aligners is their discreet appearance. The clear aligners blend seamlessly with your natural smile, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing too much attention to your teeth.  

Additionally, Invisalign® aligners are removable, giving you the flexibility to eat, drink, and maintain your oral hygiene with ease! And don’t worry — if you’re at a special occasion, you can certainly remove the aligners for a few hours and resume wearing them as usual! Simply remove the aligners before meals and brush and floss normally. With no dietary restrictions or cumbersome cleaning routines, Invisalign® aligners offer unparalleled comfort and convenience.  

Invisalign® Treatment Process 

The journey to a straighter smile with Invisalign® aligners begin with a consultation at Wired Orthodontics in Austin. During this initial visit, our experienced orthodontists will assess your oral health and discuss your treatment goals. If Invisalign® aligners are deemed suitable for you, we’ll create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. 

Once your treatment plan is finalized, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth to design your custom aligner trays. Throughout your treatment, you’ll wear a series of aligners, gradually moving your teeth into their desired position. Regular check-ups with our team will ensure that your treatment progresses smoothly. 

Maintaining Your Invisalign® Aligners 

Proper maintenance is essential to ensure the effectiveness and clarity of your Invisalign® aligners. To clean your aligners, gently brush them with a soft toothbrush and rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water or harsh chemicals, as these can damage the aligners. Additionally, consider using specialized cleaning crystals or tablets to keep your aligners fresh and odor-free.
