What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that works to gradually straighten your teeth. It’s a set of clear aligners designed with your comfort in mind, molding around the natural ridges of your teeth. Your Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can enjoy all of your favorite foods and won’t have to worry about hiding your smile due to its discreet appearance.
With Invisalign, Dr. Gaeta and our Kailua-Kona team can treat overly crowded or widely spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites – without anyone even knowing. There are a wide variety of benefits when you choose Invisalign, such as:
- Quick treatment time
- Practically invisible appearance
- Comfortable to wear
- Easy to maintain
- Easily removable
- No wires or metal braces
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Straightening your teeth has never been quicker. With our three-step treatment process, you’ll achieve the smile of your dreams quickly and comfortably.
- Initial Consultation – During your first visit to our Kailua-Kona dental office, Dr. Gaeta will discuss your smile goals and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We’ll take high-quality impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where your customized aligners will be created.
- Wearing Your Aligners – Invisalign straightens your teeth gradually, and you’ll receive a new set of clear aligners about every two weeks. To achieve your desired results, you’ll need to wear these aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat or clean your teeth. Each set of aligners is meticulously designed to only influence a certain set of teeth, gently shifting them into proper alignment.
- Smile With Confidence – After about 12 to 18 months with Invisalign, you’ll achieve a straight and beautiful smile. Throughout your treatment, we’ll monitor your progress and adjust your plan if necessary. Once your treatment is complete, you can enjoy all the benefits of a stunning, healthy smile.
Are You a Candidate?
If you’re looking to straighten your teeth and improve your oral health without the hassles of traditional braces, Invisalign could be right for you. Dr. Gaeta often recommends Invisalign clear aligner therapy for adults whose teeth have shifted out of proper alignment.
While Invisalign is an ideal solution for adults with mild to moderate alignment issues, teenagers have a more malleable jaw and need adjusted treatment. To determine if Invisalign is the right solution to your orthodontic issues, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gaeta today.
