How Invisalign Clear Braces Work
Your customized aligners are planned using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology, Dr. Leung takes photos, impressions, and x-rays of your teeth that are used to create a virtual 3-D model of your teeth. Your treatment plan is developed by Dr. Leung to gently move your teeth into the desired position.
This information is sent to Using the impressions and the information gathered at your first visit, a several sets of clear plastic aligners are created to sequentially move your teeth into proper alignment.
During treatment, your goal is to wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day for the fastest results, and after two weeks, you switch to the next set of aligners. It’s easy to stay motivated throughout treatment as you see the progress each time you change aligners. During this period, we'll have you return to our Temple dental office at four-week intervals to check on your progress.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
If you are dealing with an overbite, underbite, or crooked teeth, the problem should be addressed and corrected as soon as possible. Without treatment, these misalignments can create serious oral health issues like bone erosion, teeth grinding, jaw pain, and even TMJ.
Oral hygiene is another important benefit of using Invisalign. Since the aligners are removable, it is much easier to keep your teeth healthy and free of disease. This is essential for maintaining oral health and avoiding complications like periodontal disease.
Patients at Temple Dental Trails who have undergone treatment with Invisalign are thrilled with the outcome and report that treatment was comfortable and stress-free.
