Invisalign® in Oak Creek

Do you find yourself covering your mouth when you smile? If misaligned teeth are preventing you from living your happiest, healthiest, and fullest life—our orthodontics team wants to help! Treatment with Invisalign® is an ideal solution for many patients dealing with crooked teeth because the aligners are clear and virtually invisible. Invisalign® enables patients to straighten their teeth effectively without letting the whole world know.

The Invisalign® Process

Invisalign® in Oak Creek begins with a consultation with a qualified orthodontist. Your orthodontist will examine your teeth and overall oral health to ensure you are an ideal candidate for treatment. They will then take impressions of your smile, which will be used to create a series of aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for approximately 2 weeks before moving on to the next set. Each set will apply gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually shifting them into the ideal position for a straight and beautiful smile.

Life With Invisalign®

Your orthodontist will give you instructions regarding how long you will need to wear your aligners each day, and for how many months. Most people will wear their aligners for 20-22 hours every day, removing them only for meals, snacks, and non-water beverages. You will need to clean your teeth and aligners regularly in order to avoid the buildup of harmful bacteria, which can cause damage to your teeth as well as your aligners. Wearing your aligners for the full amount of time required by your orthodontist will help ensure that your treatment is effective.

Cleaning Your Aligners

You will want to clean your aligners thoroughly in the morning and at night, by soaking them in a specialized cleaning solution and/or using an antibacterial soap, as directed. It’s important to rinse your aligners under lukewarm water every time you take them out of your mouth. After meals or non-water beverages, brush your teeth to ensure that no food debris becomes trapped in your aligner. While most people get in the habit of carrying their toothbrush with them when out of the house, the next best thing is to rinse your mouth with water when you forget it.
