Invisible Braces for Adults
Clear braces have become extremely popular with adult orthodontic patients. Dr. Cabal maintains certification to administer Invisalign, a patented system of custom, clear acrylic aligners that reposition teeth in less time than traditional braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign
In addition to their inconspicuous appearance, Invisalign aligners are removable. Patients simply take out their aligners to clean their teeth, eat a meal, or attend a special event. Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign users need not restrict certain foods that commonly damage brackets and archwires. Patients can also clean their teeth more thoroughly, as they do not need to navigate a toothbrush and floss around fixed appliances.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Dr. Cabal uses innovative 3D imaging software to design and plan treatment. A certified Invisalign laboratory fabricates a set of aligners that will reposition teeth incrementally over a period of 9 to 18 months. The patient will wear each aligner for approximately two weeks and then move to the next in his or her set. For best results, patients should wear the Invisalign aligners for about 22 hours per day, taking them out only to eat, drink, or clean the teeth. Not wearing the aligners as instructed will result in longer treatment times.
To assess treatment progress, Dr. Cabal prefers to see Invisalign patients once every six weeks or so. No “adjustment” is required. The appointments involve simple checkups to evaluate whether treatment is moving along as planned.
No metal. No wires. No brackets. No bands. Clearly, Invisalign is perfect for busy adults who want to maintain a sophisticated image.
Adolescents can also benefit from treatment with Invisalign. Read about Invisalign Teen and other aesthetically pleasing treatment options we offer teen patients at Lake Country Orthodontics.
