Invisalign in Lehi, UT

Invisalign in Lehi, UT

Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses sets of smooth, comfortable aligners to gradually shift teeth into place. The aligners are nearly invisible when worn and can be removed for easy eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign is most effective at treating mild-to-moderate misalignment issues, and it does not address severe malocclusion.

What Can Invisalign Aligners Fix?

Invisalign aligners can fix a number of orthodontic problems that include the following:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth

Invisalign Treatment Process

The Invisalign treatment process includes using a series of Invisalign aligners that progressively straighten your teeth. Your treatment will consist of the following:

An initial consultation with your dentist. Our dentist in Lehi UT will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth. He will then take photos. These records will be used to customize your Invisalign aligners.

A series of Invisalign aligners. These aligners are custom-fabricated to fit your teeth. The aligners are made of a smooth BPA-free plastic that is comfortable to wear. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The patient should wear them for at least 22 hours a day to get the best results from the aligners. And they need to change to the next set of aligners every two weeks. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. They’re also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no wires or metal to cause mouth abrasions. And having no metal and wires would mean you’ll need to spend less time in your doctor’s office for adjustments. Invisalign also lets you see at the beginning of your treatment a digital projection of how your treatment plan will progress and how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

Invisalign is best suited for patients who want to straighten their teeth but don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional braces. Invisalign isn’t right for everyone, however. For example, if your teeth are severely misaligned, Invisalign may not be able to correct them. Invisalign also doesn’t exert pressure as strongly as traditional braces do. So if your bite is misaligned, you’ll probably need traditional braces.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

How long your Invisalign treatment will take depends on how much adjustment needs to be done. Generally speaking, your Invisalign treatment will take around a year for adults. For teens and kids, the length of treatment will depend upon their specific needs.

The length of your treatment will also depend on how well you cooperate with your Invisalign provider. If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, your treatment time will be shorter.
