What should I expect with Invisalign?

Close up of woman putting on Invisalign clear aligners in Norfolk MAThe team at Norfolk County Dental Care enjoys helping patients reach their smile goals, and we offer a variety of services to make that happen, including Invisalign clear aligners.

When it comes to clear aligners, Invisalign is the most popular and trusted option out there. Patients who are looking for a straight smile often request it by name.

Your dentist in Norfolk, MA offers Invisalign in our dental office, and our patients have loved their results.  

What Is Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that allow for discreet orthodontics. You wear custom aligners to gently move your teeth into position across the treatment timeline. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about brackets and wires detracting from your smile and scratching and rubbing against oral tissue.

You can laugh, smile, and feel confident during your orthodontic treatment.

Who Is Invisalign Treatment for?

Invisalign is ideal for older teens and adults.

For adults, it allows for discreet treatment, which is important to those who socialize, work outside the home, or often speak with friends and neighbors. Sometimes, adults who had orthodontics during childhood consider Invisalign if they did not wear their retainers and suffered an orthodontic relapse.

For teens, Invisalign is a way for them to straighten their teeth without feeling self-conscious. They’ll not have to worry about brackets and wires as they interact with their peers.

If an orthodontic procedure allows for easier wear and helps our patients feel more confident, that is a system we wholly support!

What Is the Treatment Process at Norfolk County Dental Care?

Everything starts with a consultation in our dental office in Norfolk, MA. Your dentist examines your teeth and gums, takes x-rays if no recent or relevant films are on file, and talks to you about your smile objectives. Your dentist also lets you know what to expect following treatment, how long treatment will take, and answers your questions about Invisalign.

If Invisalign is the right option for you, we take careful impressions of your teeth, send these results on to the Invisalign lab, and they send us your aligners. You come into our dentist's office in Norfolk, MA, and your dentist will fit the first one in your kit. You wear the first one for a week or more and then change to the next one in your series. This is something you can do at home.

You visit your dentist periodically to make sure your teeth are lining up on time, and you can remove your aligners when eating and cleaning your teeth. However, you should keep them in for at least 22 hours per day.

After treatment, we provide a custom retainer to keep your teeth trained in their new straight positions.  

How Do I Take Care of My Aligners?

You can rinse your aligners with very mild hand soap and slightly warm or room temperature water. You never want to use harsh pastes, hot/cold water, or brushes on your aligners.
