Invisalign Specialists in Windsor

Invisalign offers a similar outcome to traditional braces, providing teens and adults with a more liberating and adaptable option. Goings Orthodontics is renowned for successfully aligning smiles for clients across all age groups in Windsor, Fort Collins, and nearby regions.

Understanding Invisalign Treatment

The Invisalign method uses a sequence of transparent, detachable aligners to straighten your teeth and enhance dental health. When followed correctly, Invisalign is just as effective as conventional braces for correcting many common dental alignment issues.

During your first visit, we'll take x-rays and digital scans to generate an accurate 3D model of your teeth. This model helps us create aligners tailored specifically to your dental structure. Made from a smooth, comfortable material, these aligners snugly cover your teeth. You'll need to change these custom-made trays every one to two weeks to accommodate your teeth as they shift to their new positions.

What are the advantages of opting for Invisalign?

One of the top advantages of Invisalign is its almost invisible appearance, coupled with the convenience of being able to remove the aligners. This feature allows you to take them out before meals or snacks, eliminating the concern of food particles getting trapped as they might with traditional braces. Additionally, for optimal oral hygiene, you should also remove them before brushing and flossing, making it simpler to keep your teeth clean and healthy—an essential aspect of orthodontic care.

With Invisalign, you're free from dietary restrictions, a notable challenge for those with conventional braces. You can continue to enjoy your preferred foods while on your journey to a more aligned smile. It's important to remove the aligners before eating to prevent discoloration and to clean them with warm water regularly, at least once or twice daily.

Invisalign also means you won't have to deal with the discomfort of wires or the need for adjustments that traditional braces require. However, you will need to visit for check-ups every 6-8 weeks to ensure your teeth are aligning as planned.

Understanding the Windsor Invisalign Process

The Windsor Invisalign method is quite simple. You will wear each set of aligners for roughly two weeks, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. With each new set of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their new, desired positions.

At Goings Orthodontics, we monitor your progress during your appointments to ensure the treatment is on track. It's crucial to switch your aligners as directed and wear them according to instructions. This adherence is vital for the success of achieving your desired smile with Windsor Invisalign. Your aligners are tailor-made for your specific dental requirements and need regular updates to match your teeth's movement as they align. Failing to change your aligners as needed or missing appointments can reverse any improvements made.

It's important to note that individual responses to orthodontic treatment vary. Invisalign, being a less invasive alternative to braces for straightening teeth, means the duration until visible, positive results can differ significantly, typically ranging from 6 to 18 months, depending on the case. The effectiveness largely depends on the patient's compliance with the treatment plan.

Our average treatment duration estimates are based on patients adhering to wearing their aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day, throughout their treatment. Deviating from this recommended routine can prolong the treatment period. Invisalign's success hinges on patients following the prescribed regimen closely.
