At Honest Dental we believe everyone deserves a beautiful and healthy smile. That is why Dr. Trivedi recommends Invisalign braces to help perfect your smile. Invisalign braces is the modern way to straighten teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional braces. This system can be used on teens and adults and gradually shifts your teeth into the exact alignment prescribed by your dentist. The trays are easy to use and best of all pain-free.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is a system of clear plastic trays you wear over your teeth. As you wear them your teeth are gently shifted into place. There are no wires or bands involved with Invisalign braces so you have no apparatus in your mouth. The trays are clear and BPA free so they won’t cause irritation to your cheeks or gums. You can wear them all day and remove them when you eat and brush your teeth.
Every two weeks you switch to a new set of aligners to help your teeth shift into place. About every six weeks you will return to the office to be fitted for your next set of aligners. Most people wear their aligner trays for about a year to achieve a perfect smile. For teens, the duration is about the same as for traditional braces. Since each case is unique your time may be a bit less or a bit more.
Invisalign Aligner Trays are Custom Fitted
At your first visit, Dr. Trivedi will examine your teeth and discuss the Invisalign process with you. He will go over the entire process and answer any questions you may have. Next, he will take x-rays of your teeth and make impressions of your teeth so the new aligner trays can be fitted just for you. Invisalign braces will take these impressions of your teeth make 3-D models of them and create your custom fitted aligner trays. Using state of the art technology Dr. Trivedi can show you an approximation of how your teeth will look once they are shifted into place.
