Invisalign Treatment Appleton, WI
Have you been wanting to straighten your smile, but aren’t keen on the idea of sporting a mouth full of metal brackets and wires? Anne E. Siegrist DDS, SC offers Invisalign clear aligners to help patients straighten their smile discreetly. Invisalign is a revolutionary system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional metal braces. It is recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding.
A series of clear, removable plastic aligners is utilized to move teeth gradually and systematically into the correct position. They are worn over your teeth and are virtually undetectable. You can easily remove the aligners when you are eating or brushing your teeth. Invisalign keeps your smile looking natural all while straightening your teeth with minimal effort.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign treatment from your dentist in Appleton, WI offers many benefits and is an easy way to get the smile you want. One of the main advantages of Invisalign clear aligners is being able to remove the aligner trays for eating meals and completing oral hygiene steps.
Other benefits include:
- Fast Treatment Time
- Minimally Invasive Treatment
- Unrestricted Diet
- Ability to Brush and Floss Easily – No Wires in the Way!
- Few Lifestyle Changes
- Discreet Treatment
With Invisalign, you can eat and drink anything you’d like without restriction, as long as you remove the aligners while eating. Invisalign won’t impact your day-to-day life and won’t cause you to change much about your normal lifestyle.
What to Expect During Invisalign Treatment
Depending on the prescribed treatment plan determined by Dr. Siegrist, you will be instructed to wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until the process is complete. Every case is unique to each patient so depending upon the malocclusion or degree of crowding or spacing a patient has, treatment time can range from 6 months to 2 years.
The Success of Your Treatment
It’s important to understand that Invisalign treatment requires full compliance from its wearer for it to be effective. Although aligners are removable, making it convenient to brush and floss your teeth and enjoy meals without worrying about braces, you still need to wear your aligners for about 22 hours out of the day in order to see results. Regular checkups with Dr. Siegrist, approximately every two months, are also vital to ensure your treatment is progressing properly and to see if any adjustments need to be made. Patients must also understand from the start that they will need to wear an Invisalign clear retainer afterwards to help maintain results.
