Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids. In fact, at least 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. More discreet options for treatment such as Invisalign and other clear aligners help make treatment less visible and more convenient than ever.
Whether for yourself or your child, orthodontic treatment is within your reach. There is no need for a referral. Contact us directly to schedule an appointment.
Why Should I Get Invisalign As An Adult?
Invisalign makes an excellent choice for adults that are looking to correct their smiles. For example, maybe you had braces as a teen, but your teeth have shifted over the years. Or maybe you never received orthodontic treatment growing up, so the same issues still bother you as an adult.
Whatever the case, Dr. Santucci is here to help. Invisalign for adults is the premier option to straighten your teeth without the metal look of traditional braces. Invisalign allows you to get the beautiful smile you deserve with virtually no indication that you’re undergoing treatment.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
The beginning of treatment proves quite simple. First, Dr. Santucci will assess your teeth and bite, personal needs, and concerns. After this initial consultation, Dr. Santucci will use our iTero scanner to take digital scans of your teeth and jaw. Using the iTero scanner, we eliminate the need for traditional messy molds and can create a more accurate impression of your smile.
With these images, our team will create the appropriate-fitting clear aligners to kick-start the treatment process. These clear aligners will be changed out every couple of weeks to gently shift your teeth into the proper position.
How Long Will Treatment Last?
Treatment time varies from patient to patient. Wearing Invisalign is not a one-size-fits-all model. Some patients need new clear aligners every two weeks for two years, while others may acquire maximum benefits and total teeth straightening in one year.
The best way to get a more precise timeline for your treatment plan is to speak with the orthodontic team at Santucci Orthodontics. Together, Dr. Santucci will work with you to outline a more detailed plan should you qualify for Invisalign treatment.
Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?
The good news is that Invisalign for adults is not an uncomfortable orthodontic solution. Since you receive new clear aligners every two weeks, your mouth only experiences gentle, consistent pressure that works to straighten your teeth.
To ensure that your Invisalign aligners work as they should, remember to wear them for as long as possible, typically around 20-22 hours each day. Santucci Orthodontics is here to help you take charge of your smile with Invisalign for adults, so you’re steps away from the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
