Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten gaps, spaces and poor alignment in your smile. It has a few advantages over standard invisalignmetal braces, which is why many adult patients request this orthodontic treatment. Here are a few things that your Ukrainian Village dentist can tell you about Invisalign that will help you decide if it's the right solution for you.

Whether It's Right for You
The best candidates for Invisalign have relatively minor orthodontic problems, like small gaps, an underbite or overbite and slight crowding. Your dentist will make a model of your teeth to determine how your smile will look after the treatment is complete.

How Long the Treatment Will Take
Every patient is different, but most Invisalign treatment periods last between six months to a year. This is a stark contrast to the time it takes to get results with metal braces (sometimes up to three years). Your dentist will give you a more accurate estimate of when you'll have your new smile.

How Often You'll Need New Trays
Throughout your Invisalign treatment period, you'll be asked to come to your Ukrainian Village dentist regularly for new trays and a checkup. Expect to receive a new aligner tray about every six weeks. At your final visit, you'll receive a tray that will be used as your retainer to wear when you're sleeping. 

How to Assure the Best Results
Another thing your dentist can tell you about Invisalign is how to care for your smile to ensure the best orthodontic results. You can remove your aligner tray while eating, during a meeting or to clean it, but it should be on for 20-22 hours per day. You must also clean and rinse your trays regularly to keep it clear of food and bacteria.
