Orthodontics focuses on alignment of the teeth and jaws to improve a person’s smile and oral health. Braces are devices that can be used to straighten teeth, correct an irregular bite, close gaps and bring teeth and lips into proper alignment.
Invisalign is an innovative technique that is used to correct misaligned and uneven teeth without the need to wear traditional braces. With the help of 3D technology, Arlington Smiles plans your treatment, showing you how your teeth will adjust and what your final smile will look like. Once the treatment has been agreed upon and the patient is satisfied with the pre-visualization of the final result. We send the plan to the Invisalign center, where the removable transparent aligners are manufactured. These aligners are replaced every two weeks, having been adapted to the new positioning of the teeth. By way of this system, the teeth are gradually moved into the ideal position.
Taking care of your teeth during and after Invisalign treatment:
The most important step you can take to ensure you have a perfect smile and healthy gums during and after treatment is to practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing everyday and using mouthwashes.
After treatment you want to wear the retainers that are created for you every night, so the teeth do not shift back to their original positions.
