Invisalign in Las Vegas, NV

Having straight teeth is vital for children and adults. As we grow older, the teeth are inclined to grow inwards, resulting in crowded teeth, a common orthodontic problem. Invisalign is a modern tooth straightening treatment that can address crowding issues and helps you maintain your oral health. At Mark J. Escoto, DDS in Las Vegas, NV 89117, we offer Invisalign treatments to help you realize a flawless, healthy smile.  

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign® system straightens your teeth using a series of transparent plastic trays that rest cozily over your upper and lower teeth. Once every fifteen days, you must switch to the next aligners that gradually shift your teeth closer to the correct orthodontic position. These gradual movements are more comfortable than straightening with metal braces. In addition, as the aligners are removable, it becomes easier to eat your food and keep your teeth clean and healthy during treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign trays are removable and practically invisible while working to correct the gaps, overbites, and underbites and straighten crooked teeth. The trays gradually shift your teeth into the desired position to help you achieve a beautiful and confident smile.

The Invisalign system employs a series of customized dental-grade plastic aligners to improve your smile within the first couple of months while ensuring maximum comfort. In some cases, you may notice changes in just about two weeks. Though the results may vary for different patients, the Invisalign process typically works in half the time as traditional braces. But you may have to schedule regular dental appointments to have your aligners checked.

Does Invisalign Treatment Hurt?

While wearing your first Invisalign aligners set, some discomfort is natural until you become used to them. You must wear your Invisalign aligners for about 20 to 22 hours every day. After getting used to wearing them, the discomfort will subside within a few weeks. Eventually, you will even forget that you are wearing the aligners.

Each time your aligners require an adjustment, the teeth will likely feel some discomfort, but that only means the treatment is working. Adjustments are necessary once your teeth begin moving into their ideal places.

How to Care for Your Aligners?

While undergoing the Invisalign treatment, it is critical to remember your teeth need to be brushed and flossed regularly. And you must not forget to remove the aligners before eating and drinking foods. The aligners must be worn for the specified duration for optimal results.

Your custom-made Invisalign aligners will discolor, scratch, or crack if exposed to certain foods, sugars, nicotine, and caffeine. Please leave them in dedicated containers while you eat. Before wearing them back in your mouth, clean your teeth as any leftover food debris can discolor them.
