Invisalign® is one of the most convenient and discreet ways to correct a variety of tooth alignment issues. Traditional orthodontic treatments use uncomfortable metal brackets and wires, while Invisalign® aligners are made of clear plastic, making them virtually invisible in your smile. Alignment issues can increase your risk for periodontal disease and tooth decay, compromising your oral health. Dr. Lisa Johnson and Dr. Leanna McBride offer Invisalign® treatments to patients in the Grand Rapids, MN-area, at Grand Dental Center.
How Invisalign® Works
This comfortable and discreet cosmetic treatment is performed using a series of clear plastic aligners that subtly move your teeth into the appropriate position. We will take measurements and impressions of your bite that will be used to create your aligners. Each successive aligner varies only slightly from the previous, gradually providing exceptional results. Patients can easily remove their Invisalign® aliner when eating and drinking, or to brush their teeth.
Customized Treatment Plans
Your initial consultation will consist of a thorough examination and evaluation of your oral health. You should have clear dental goals coming into this consultation, as that will help us recommend the best method of care and help you achieve the smile that you desire. We will then take measurements and impressions of your smile to create your aligners and plan your treatment.
We will then ask you to come back to our office once your Invisalign® aligners have been made. The dentist will give you specific instructions for your care when you receive your aligners. A series of follow-up visits will also be scheduled during this appointment, so that we can check in frequently to ensure that your Invisalign® treatment is progressing as expected.
Ensuring Positive Results
Proper maintenance and application can help ensure that you get the results that you want from treatment. The clear plastic aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day, and should only be removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning of both the aligners and your teeth. It is important to keep up with regular maintenance, as Invisalign® patients can sometimes experience staining on their teeth. Proper at-home dental hygiene during treatment will maximize the dramatic results of your beautiful, newly-straightened smile.
