Invisalign® Clear Braces in Beachwood, OH
Thanks to modern orthodontics, adult patients who want to straighten their smiles can now avoid traditional bracket and wire braces. Invisalign clear braces reposition your teeth without the unpleasantness or embarrassment associated with traditional orthodontics. The Invisalign system straightens teeth through a series of clear, custom aligners. Patients wear each aligner for about two weeks and then replace it with the next one in the series. It’s that simple!
First, patients visit our Beachwood practice for an Invisalign consultation. If the patient and Dr. Hornstein determine that Invisalign orthodontics are the right solution to correct their smile, patients begin planning their treatment. The first visit is used to collect diagnostic images and x-rays that are used to create the custom alignment trays. When the first set of trays is complete, patients return to the office so we can ensure the trays perform their function. Throughout treatment, patients wear each set of alignment trays for about two weeks. During this time, patients need to worry about changes to their diet or oral hygiene routines. Simply remove aligners during meals and while brushing and flossing. Then, rinse and replace the alignment trays. The clear plastic is virtually invisible to the casual observer, crafted from comfortable materials, and strong enough to provide consistent pressure and shift teeth into proper alignment. Unlike other orthodontic treatments, patients don’t need to visit an orthodontist for long visits every month. Instead, once every six to eight weeks, patients visit our team for a brief appointment during which we check the progress of their treatment to ensure their smiles are progressing according to plan. In addition to saving time throughout treatment with fewer visits, patients also complete treatment more quickly overall. In most cases, patients achiever their desired results in just ten to eighteen months compared with two or more years for traditional orthodontics.
