Invisalign is an orthodontic system of clear mouth trays that gradually move your teeth into their proper alignment. The trays are made of clear BPA-free plastic, so they are safe, healthful and discreet. Whether you are wearing Invisalign or Invisalign Teen, Worthington, OH, patients of Dr. Shirck can expect to wear their clear braces for at least 22 hours a day. Your commitment and dedication to faithfully wearing your clear braces daily is critical to completing treatment on time.
Receiving Invisalign in Worthington, OH
Dr. Shirck, your orthodontist in Worthington, OH, will carefully assess your individual orthodontic needs. Invisalign can be used to correct a variety of misalignment issues from overcrowding and rotated teeth to an overbite, underbite or crossbite. Using photographs, x-rays and impressions of your teeth, he will create a treatment plan that plots the movement of your teeth step-by-step.
Skilled technicians at the Invisalign lab use Worthington orthodontist Dr. Shirck’s plan to customize the aligners that you will wear to achieve a perfectly straight smile. The aligners arrive pre-arranged in the order they need to be worn. All you have to do is wear each pair daily for approximately two weeks before advancing to the next pair.
The Advantages of Invisalign in Worthington, OH
In addition to being much more inconspicuous that traditional braces, Invisalign clear braces offer other advantages, too. Because they are removable, they allow you to eat all the food you normally enjoy. Traditional metal brackets and wires that are cemented to your teeth necessitate a restricted diet in order to keep the braces in place. Not so with Invisalign.
Similarly with Invisalign, Worthington, OH, residents simply remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth thereby reducing the risk of developing cavities or gum disease while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
