At Platinum Dental Studio, we are proud to offer Invisalign- the revolutionary orthodontic treatment that does away with metal brackets and wires of traditional braces
If you are looking to straighten your smile without distracting metal wires and brackets, Invisalign can be the perfect solution for you! Invisalign is a set of clear, translucent aligners that are removable and virtually invisible when worn.
After an initial consultation, we will take measurements of your mouth and teeth so we can manufacture a custom set of aligners for your treatment – as few as 12 or as many as 48. You will wear each set for about 2 weeks, for 22 hours a day.
With each new set of aligners, your teeth will slowly be pushed into place until they move to their final straight position.
That depends entirely on the treatment goals you set with your doctor and the amount of correction that needs to be achieved. Poor oral hygiene and poor compliance with the recommended daily wear schedule can increase treatment time and affect the quality of the results.
Most patients feel some pressure or minor discomfort for a few days after each new aligner, but it is minor and will go away on its own.
