Wondering how to get a straighter smile without the expense of what traditional braces cost? At Blackhawk Dental Care, we offer Invisalign® orthodontics, a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign offers outstanding results in as little time as possible, making the process of getting a straighter smile simpler and more comfortable than traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made plastic aligners which gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. We’ll create an individualized plan for you, which maps a course of treatment and determines the final position, and then your customized aligners are crafted. Because we can tailor the Invisalign system to address your unique needs, we ensure personalized results.
Every two weeks, you’ll swap your current aligners with the next in the series. Each aligner applies the appropriate amount of force to comfortably coerce your teeth into the proper position. It’s a gradual change, however over the course of treatment you’ll be amazed at the results, which some patients achieve in as little as 12-15 months.
Throughout your treatment, you’ll wear between 18 and 30 different sets of aligners, which you keep in your mouth for a minimum of 20-22 hours each day. After approximately six weeks, Dr. Adams will evaluate your progress and ensure you’re on track to your anticipated results.
Invisalign orthodontics correct misaligned, gapped, or crooked teeth, and since the clear aligners are virtually undetectable when worn, they’re also discreet. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign doesn’t require multiple visits to the orthodontist to tighten wires or adjust brackets. And because they are removable, you can eat and drink whatever you like, and brushing and flossing your teeth is as easy as ever.
Invisalign is less invasive than traditional orthodontics, however it’s not right for everyone. If we determine you need more advanced orthodontic therapy, we’re happy to refer you to a highly recommended orthodontist, conveniently located in the same building as our office. We’re here to get you the straightest smile possible, so don’t hesitate to ask us if Invisalign is right for you!
