Hagerty Dentistry, Lansing’s premier family and cosmetic dentist, proudly offers Invisalign to patients who want a straighter smile. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that offers an alternative to traditional metal braces. In addition to a less noticeable appearance, the clear braces are a more convenient treatment process. In less time and with less discomfort, you’ll benefit from professional results when choosing Invisalign in Lansing with Dr. Hagerty.
Benefits of Invisalign
As your leading Lansing dentist for Invisalign, we proudly offer the benefits associated with the orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that are made from a safe, durable plastic material. The aligner trays are custom-made to move your teeth into their correct alignment.
Using the clear material, your treatment process will be as discreet as possible because there’s no need for wires or brackets. As a result, you can smile confidently as your teeth are moved into place. Since no brackets are used, there’s less discomfort, less restrictions, and oral hygiene throughout treatment is easier. The removable trays are the fast and most convenient option to straighten your teeth.
Treatment Process with Your Dentist in Lansing
After performing an evaluation of your mouth and oral health to determine if Invisalign is right for you, we will create a series of aligner trays. Each tray in the series will make slight adjustments to your teeth, allowing them to be moved into their correct position. You will wear the aligner trays for about 22 hours per day as they should only be taken out when brushing and flossing your teeth.
While you’re undergoing treatment, you will wear each tray in the series for about 2 weeks, at which point, you will switch to the next tray in the series. In as little as 12 months, you will finish all of the trays in the series. Your final results will be a straighter, more attractive smile.
Enjoy the Convenience of Invisalign in Lansing
In addition to less discomfort and a less noticeable appearance, many choose Invisalign because it offers added convenience. In fact, you’ll enjoy less trips to the dentist and a shorter treatment time. After we create your aligner trays, you’ll take those trays home with you, so you’re able to progress your treatment without having to come into the office for adjustments like those required with traditional braces. However, you will still need to check in every few weeks so we can monitor the progression of the treatment.
You’ll also have a faster treatment time than when compared to traditional braces. On average, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign only takes 12 to 18 months, unlike a couple of years with traditional braces.
