Beginning Your Invisalign Treatment: What To Expect

Beginning something new can be exciting, but a little nerve-racking. You can be particularly curious about an experience that will affect your smile. Our Rochester, MN dental office is prepared to help patients who have concerns about poor dental alignment – instead of using metal braces, we can offer treatment with Invisalign. When you start an Invisalign adjustment, you can be glad to have an appliance that does not affect your appearance. You can also find that these aligners are easy to remove, so they do not intrude on your ability to eat, and effectively clean your teeth. While orthodontic work can feel like a significant step, you can be glad to have access to a treatment that avoids interfering with your daily life.

Invisalign Aligners Can Be More Convenient Than Metal Braces

Invisalign treatment relies on a series of custom-made clear appliances that gradually move your teeth into their correct positions. Because multiple appliances are used in place of a single, fixed appliance, you can require fewer appointments with your dentist, and you can find that your adjustment period feels less intrusive on your life. When your Invisalign appliance could be in your way, you can simply remove it. You can also be relieved to have an appliance that others do not notice.

How Are Your Custom Appliances Created?

To create the right aligners for a patient, we use our iTero digital scanner to carefully measure their bite. This removes the need to create a physical mold, so you will not have to bite into unpleasant plaster material. The iTero digital scanner takes detailed information by scanning your bite, and creating the necessary data to craft your aligners. When the necessary information is digitally gathered, your dentist can actually show you a preview of your smile after treatment!

Common Questions About Invisalign Treatment

While patients can be excited by the convenience of discreet orthodontic appliances, they can also have questions about Invisalign. If you are worried about how Invisalign can fit into your daily life, it should be noted that their design makes them hard to notice, so you should not have to worry about their impact on your professional or social life. Because of this, many adult and teen patients seeking orthodontic adjustment can be excited to use them. Questions you have about how long Invisalign might take will depend on your current smile. For many people, the use of Propel Orthodontic technology can significantly reduce treatment time.
