Schedule an appointment with Norwalk Family Dental by phone or book online to find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.
Invisalign treatment at Norwalk Family Dental uses a series of clear plastic aligners, which fit over your natural teeth, to slowly shift them into their proper alignment without brackets or wires associated with traditional braces. Invisalign can give you the straight, perfectly aligned teeth you desire in as little as 12-18 months.
Invisalign is a fast, painless, effective orthodontic treatment for adults and teens. The Norwalk Family Dental team uses the latest, most advanced Invisalign technology to give you a desirable outcome. The result is straighter teeth, easier dental cleaning, more confidence about your smile, and a better overall quality of life.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, your dentist reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They also take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. Using state-of-the-art technology, you can see what the end result of Invisalign treatment will look like ahead of time.
During the first step of Invisalign treatment, your dentist digitally scans your teeth, allowing a lab to create custom clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. After the aligners are ready, you begin wearing them. Keep them on 20-22 hours every day and switch to a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks. Take them out when you eat, brush your teeth, and floss.
Keep your aligners clean by brushing them with toothpaste and a toothbrush or using the Invisalign cleaning system. Rinse the aligners with warm water, but never use hot water. Call Norwalk Family Dental if your aligners get lost or damaged.
Brush your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily and don’t chew on ice or other hard objects. See your dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning and exam.
Don’t live with crooked or misaligned teeth when a simple treatment can restore your beautiful smile. Schedule a consultation with Norwalk Family Dental by phone or online to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
