[GLASGOW, 12/10/2017] Particularly popular with teenagers and image-conscious adults, Invisalign offers a viable alternative to metal braces, since no one needs to know that patients are undergoing treatment – Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible.
At Park Orthodontics, Invisalign consists of a series of transparent, removable, custom-made, plastic aligners that will gradually move the teeth into their correct position. Invisalign aligners at Park Orthodontics are made of high-quality plastic and they are very comfortable to wear.
The Invisalign process at Park Orthodontics
The first step in seeking treatment with Invisalign is to make an appointment with a dentist at Park Orthodontics. They will sit down with each patient and explain the details of the treatment. They will also use a special scanning system to determine whether someone is a good candidate for Invisalign at Park Orthodontics. Patients who qualify for Invisalign, will have set up an effective treatment plan detailing the costs and procedures involved.
The dentists at Park Orthodontics will then take digital scans from the patient’s teeth in order to help the Invisalign lab create the customised aligners. At Park Orthodontics, each patient will be provided with a series of aligners, each of which are used for about two weeks. After two weeks, they will have to wear the next one in the series in order to meet the current needs of their teeth’s positioning. Treatment time with Invisalign at Park Orthodontics is different for each patient – some patients require only a few sets, whereas others may need to go through the treatment process for longer.
Invisalign at Park Orthodontics is a fast, easy and comfortable treatment. Once patients have a set of aligners designed specifically for their teeth, they should wear them as much as possible – at least 20 hours per day. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign aligners are entirely removable and they can be removed to eat or brush and floss the teeth. Moreover, many patients that opt for Invisalign at Park Orthodontics experience less discomfort than with traditional braces, which must be adjusted on a regular basis.
