Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. As an adult, you may be looking to improve on your smile for business or social reasons. Or perhaps you’re a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective yet modern-day solution. Either way, Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold. Take a moment to learn more about the entire Invisalign treatment process and how it can help you.
Oakmont Family Dental is a provider of Invisalign in Eugene Oregon. Invisalign ® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic system that straightens teeth using a series of soft, clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners. The Invisalign ® aligners gradually adjust the position and alignment of teeth in order to create a straight and attractive smile.
Dr. John Hardy and Dr. Jeb Andrus have quickly become two of the most trusted Invisalign providers in the Eugene area. Both doctors take their time to answer all questions and provide each patient with a digital, step-by-step presentation of the Invisalign process. Our doctors thoroughly explain the many benefits of Invisalign, from the aesthetic aspect to the numerous health aspects of having an aligned smile.
Many of our Eugene and Springfield Oregon patients have discovered that orthodontia with Invisalign clear braces is a comfortable alternative to months or years of enduring a mouthful of metal. Invisalign eliminates the irritation and discomfort that can come with the brackets and wires involved in traditional orthodontic treatment. Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually undetectable, making them easy to wear by adults without feeling self-conscious.
Let’s face it. With school, sports and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces is not at the top of your child’s list of favorite things to do. Guess what? With Invisalign Teen®, you can straighten their teeth without having to deal with metal wires and brackets. That means they can still do all the things that make these the best times of your life.
Convenience you can both live with
Invisalign Teen requires fewer visits, which means less time out of your already busy schedule. Traditional braces can often require frequent visits for adjustments and repairs to broken brackets and protruding wires. With Invisalign Teen, there’s no worry about sharp brackets cutting your mouth. Plus, we know kids lose things, even their aligners! That’s why you get up to six free replacement aligners.* How convenient is that!
The process of straightening your teeth using the Invisalign system is relatively easy. After having an initial mold of your teeth created, a series of clear plastic orthodontic aligners are fabricated that slip over the teeth to begin the alignment process. Each Invisalign aligner is worn continuously for about 2 – 3 weeks and then the next aligner in the series is worn to continue the straightening process. Most patients require 18 – 30 sets of the clear plastic aligners, worn over the course of approximately one year, to achieve straight teeth and an improved smile. Invisalign aligners can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
