Invisalign uses clear BPA-free plastic aligner trays to move teeth gently into place. At General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa, these trays are made based on impressions taken of your mouth so that they will fit perfectly with the contours of your smile. You will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually move into the desired position. While wearing these aligners, you must remove them to eat, drink anything other than water, brush and floss your teeth. By removing your aligners for these activities, you do not risk damaging them; plus, you can clean your teeth thoroughly and enjoy all the foods and drinks you love with no restrictions.
If you proceed with Invisalign, the Dentist in Tampa, FL will take digital impressions of your teeth using a specialized scanner. This process eliminates the need for traditional physical impressions. The scans are then used to create a 3D model of your teeth, which allows the dentist to plan your treatment and visualize the expected progress.
The dentist will create a customized treatment plan based on the digital scans and treatment objectives. This plan outlines the specific tooth movements needed throughout the Invisalign treatment process. You may also have the opportunity to preview a digital simulation of how your teeth will gradually shift during each stage of treatment. Using the treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners will be fabricated for your teeth. These aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic and are virtually invisible when worn. Each aligner is designed to gently pressure your teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired position.
Once your aligners are ready, you will return to the dental office to receive your first set of aligners. The dentist or orthodontist will ensure that they fit properly and provide instructions on wearing and caring for them. You will typically wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. You will have periodic checkup appointments with your dentist or orthodontist throughout your Invisalign treatment. These visits allow the dental professional to monitor your progress, ensure the aligners fit well, and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
