Invisalign Minneapolis MN
In the past, if you hadn't gotten braces before you finished high school, chances were that you’d never pursue orthodontic treatment. In fact, most adults at the time would have been horrified at the thought of wearing braces.
Today, however, Invisalign clear aligners have quickly become a popular alternative for adults who have mild to moderate crowding or spacing of teeth.
The Invisalign Difference
Traditional braces work with small brackets (usually metal) attached to the teeth. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses a series of clear removable aligner trays to straighten teeth. Invisalign clear aligners can be used to realign mildly crowded teeth or close small spaces between teeth. Since we’re not trying to dramatically alter a bad dental bite or severely misaligned teeth, results can usually be achieved in six months to a year.
The trays are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that won’t irritate sensitive mouth tissue. And since they’re clear, no one will even notice that you're having your teeth straightened!
However, our patients really love Invisalign because the trays are completely removable. You can take them out while you eat and still enjoy all your favorite foods during your treatment. Oral hygiene is also more efficient because you don’t have to worry about cleaning around wires and brackets. This is also an important benefit for athletes who need to protect their teeth with a mouth guard during sports.
How Invisalign Works
Your clear aligners are created using a software program that allows Dr. Peters to virtually rearrange the position of your teeth until the desired results are achieved. This information is then sent to a professional lab where your Invisalign aligners are custom-crafted.
You’ll receive several sets of clear trays that are designed to progressively move your teeth into the proper position. Simply wear each set for about two weeks, and then move on to the next set in the series. You’ll actually be able to see your teeth moving into their ideal position every time you change aligners.
