Understanding Kent Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign uses a sequence of transparent, detachable aligners to straighten your teeth and enhance your oral health. When followed correctly, Invisalign is as effective as traditional braces for many common orthodontic issues.

During your initial consultation, we'll take x-rays and digital impressions to create an accurate 3D model of your teeth. This model helps us craft aligners tailored specifically to your smile. Made from a smooth, comfortable material, these aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are changed every 1-2 weeks to accommodate the shifting of your teeth to their new positions.

Benefits of Choosing Invisalign Treatment

Easy Removal

This feature allows you to eat and drink without the hassle of food getting trapped as it might with traditional braces. It also makes maintaining oral hygiene much simpler since you can remove the aligners to brush and floss. This ease of cleaning is crucial during orthodontic treatment.

Eat What You Want

There are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign, which is a significant departure from the limitations often associated with traditional braces. You can enjoy your favorite foods while straightening your teeth. Remember to remove the aligners before eating to prevent staining and to clean them regularly with warm water.

Fewer Visits

Invisalign also eliminates the discomfort of wires and the need for adjustment appointments, although regular follow-up visits every 6-8 weeks are necessary to ensure your teeth are aligning correctly.

How Kent Invisalign Works

The Invisalign process is straightforward. You wear each aligner for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, or floss. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their desired positions.

At Belli & Streit Orthodontics, we monitor your treatment to ensure everything is progressing as expected. It's crucial to change your aligners as directed and wear them for the recommended 20-22 hours a day. Failing to follow these guidelines can delay your progress and affect the overall success of your treatment.

Each patient's response to orthodontic treatment varies. Invisalign offers a less invasive alternative to traditional braces, but the duration of treatment can vary widely, typically ranging from 6 to 18 months, depending on how closely you follow your treatment plan.
