Hopper Dental is proud to specialize in Invisalign, a cosmetic dentistry alternative to traditional orthodontics. Originally designed for adults who wish to straighten their smiles, Invisalign has proven to be valuable for treating a wide range of patients.
Invisalign provides a unique alternative to traditional metal braces. Using a set of clear trays called aligners, Dr. Amelia Hopper works with each patient to achieve the smile of their dreams. Let’s take a look at what your Invisalign journey may look like.
The first step to your Invisalign journey is to create a digital plan of treatment. With this unique process, you are able to see a visual representation of what your smile will look like once you complete Invisalign treatment. Using this treatment plan, we will create clear aligner trays that you will use throughout your journey.
Invisalign utilizes a series of clear aligner trays that we design to move your teeth into their ideal position. These trays are virtually invisible, making them a popular treatment option for both adults and teens. Throughout your treatment, you will wear your aligner trays for the majority of the day, removing your trays for mealtime.
Unlike traditional braces, you will remove your trays to eat or drink. This eliminates the dietary restrictions that many of our patients commonly associate with orthodontic procedures.
As your teeth begin to move into place, you will be given a new set of custom aligner trays to continue your treatment.
While each patient’s unique treatment plan varies, Invisalign typically takes between 12 to 18 months. During this time, you will visit our office for routine progress checks and to receive your new set of aligners.
Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you will be left with a smile that is both beautiful and healthy!
Invisalign not only provides aesthetic benefits but it also is beneficial to your overall health! Straight teeth are much easier to keep clean and healthy. Invisalign will allow you to more effectively clean the surface of each tooth, preventing both tooth decay and disease.
Invisalign can also successfully correct other alignment issues such as a crossbite, overbite, or underbite. Correcting these, and other imperfections, allows your teeth to function as they should. Straightening teeth also help prevent unecessary wear and tear on the teeth.
Invisalign was traditionally marketed to adults and young professionals. However, we have found that it provides an excellent alternative for teens who are active in sports or play musical instruments. The removable nature of Invisalign aligners makes it easy for your child to participate in the activities the love!
