Premiere O'Fallon Invisalign Treatments
Here at Mooney Orthodontics, we offer an array of orthodontic treatments for our patients to choose from. Our O’Fallon, MO orthodontist has the experience and is well equipped to provide you with the personalized care that will best work for your unique orthodontic situation. For those teen and adult patients who desire straighter teeth without having to wear braces with brackets and wires, we proudly offer the Invisalign system.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're in the process of straightening your teeth!
How Invisalign Works
Once you have accepted Dr. Mooney’s recommendation to use Invisalign for your treatment, we will use our cutting edge iTero scanner to make 3D digital models of your mouth. This amazingly powerful scanning technology is contained in a wand small enough to easily fit in your mouth. Even better, the iTero scanner eliminates the need for the old style putty impressions. Next, Invisalign’s software uses that 3D model to create a series of clear, custom-fitted trays, called aligners.
You will wear a set of aligners day and night for about two weeks at a time. You can remove the aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing. Unlike braces, you will not have to set semi-monthly appointments with our O’Fallon orthodontist to have your brackets adjusted and tightened. Instead, after two weeks you can simply replace your aligners with the next set in the series. The total number of sets you will use depends on your treatment plan and the severity of your orthodontic problem. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move toward their final, straight positions.
Invisalign “clear braces” allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly without the hassle. Your new, straight smile will be achieved as effectively as with traditional metal braces, provided that you follow all of the guidelines provided by Dr. Mooney.
The Many Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. You can perfect your smile discreetly without changing your current lifestyle.
- You will have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. There is no risk of breaking an appliance. You can also brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign trays are comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth.
- With Invisalign, you can view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete!
