If your teeth are crooked or if you have a misaligned bite, you may not like the idea of wearing metal braces to straighten your smile. Luckily, there is a more aesthetic option available. Ask Dr. Maynard Davenport about Invisalign® in Lakeside, Arizona. Invisalign uses clear, nearly invisible aligners to straighten your teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Our orthodontist will have a consultation with you to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Then digital images will be taken of your teeth and jaws so that your treatment plan can be formed. Individualized Invisalign aligners will be made to straighten your teeth. Wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, or as directed by our orthodontist, taking them out to eat and to clean your teeth. About every one to two weeks, our orthodontist will provide you with your next set of aligners so that you can progress in your orthodontic treatment.
Is Oral Hygiene Difficult With Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth without any extra steps. Cleaning your aligners is also simple. All you have to do is brush and rinse them in lukewarm water.
Are There Any Eating Restrictions With Invisalign?
Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods. Simply remove your aligners when eating and put them back in place when you finish.
We encourage you to set up a consultation with Dr. Maynard Davenport to find out if Invisalign is the right choice for you. Contact Maynard V Davenport Orthodontics at 928-367-2939 today!
