Some individuals with crooked or crowded teeth are hesitant to undergo orthodontic treatment because they worry that metal brackets and wires will mar the beauty of their smile. If you share this concern, ask Dr. Michael Sabat about Invisalign® in Parma and Brecksville, Ohio. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently straighten your smile over time.
When you come in for your consultation appointment, our orthodontist will speak with you about your orthodontic needs and goals. In addition, he will evaluate your smile to determine whether Invisalign is right for you.
Our orthodontist will use a digital scanner to take 3D images of your teeth. Using these images, your treatment plan will be mapped out. Your treatment plan will include things like the projected treatment time and the exact movement of your teeth.
Your aligners will be custom made for your specific needs. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can smile with pride during treatment! We recommend that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Take out your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.
Each set of aligners will gently and slowly move your teeth towards their ideal positions. Our orthodontist may recommend that you progress to the next set of aligners each week. Your checkup appointments should occur about every six weeks.
After your Invisalign treatment, we may recommend that you wear a retainer to stabilize the new positions of your teeth.
