Adult Orthodontics: With Invisalign, the Answer is Clear!28 October 2019 - Orthodontics
At Orthodontic Specialists of Tucson, we care about not only helping our teens, but about helping adults as well. A straight smile is crucial to making that first impression count…because of this, we offer Invisalign Adult, the clear alternative. With all of our team’s experience as Invisalign Providers, we are happy to offer the answers to the top common questions that we’re asked about Invisalign. It is a high priority to us that our patients are educated on what we’re doing every step of the way so that they understand their treatment plans and feel comfortable with our process and timelines – that goes for teens and adults!
How does Invisalign Adult work?
During a consultation, Dr. Raskanaves and Dr. Pearcy determines the exact movements necessary to get your teeth into the correct position. Our team then has a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. As you replace each Invisalign aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually and gently shift-little by little, until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Raskanaves has prescribed.
What are some of the responsibilities of wearing Invisalign?
It’s very important that aligners are worn the majority of the day. Compliance and cooperation is critical to any orthodontic care but especially Invisalign. Invisalign is most effective when worn 20 to 22 hours per day and changed approximately every two weeks. In fact, Invisalign aligners have blue indicators that fade over time when used as directed so we can track compliance. When Invisalign aligners are worn as directed, treatment can stay on track!
The top 5 benefits of Invisalign:
Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No hiding your smile in meetings, engagement photos or school pick-ups and no closed-lipped selfies here!
Comfortable: Made out of smooth, sleek plastic, Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable.
Removable: Don’t want your date to know you’re working on your smile? Take them off for the evening…just remember to put them back in before you go to sleep! It may not seem like it, but they’re constantly working while you go throughout your day.
Convenient: Fewer visits to the orthodontist, meaning fewer interruptions of your busy schedule. You only need to visit us about once every 2-3 months to ensure that your treatment progress is on track.
