Wauwatosa Invisalign Dentist
Invisalign From McCue Dental Health
If you want a straight smile, but you don’t want to deal with a highly visible treatment that involves chunky metal wires, Invisalign may be the right option for you. Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Whether you have crooked, gapped, or over-crowded teeth, Invisalign can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Call us today to set up a consultation with Dr. McCue!
Another great benefit is that the trays can and should be removed to eat and to brush your teeth. You don’t have to work as hard and your dentist has peace of mind knowing that your teeth are staying clean and healthy.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign offers a stress-free, nearly invisible treatment, which means you can remain confident while your teeth are gradually moved into proper alignment. Aside from this major advantage, Invisalign also offers other benefits that will make your treatment a breeze. Since the clear aligners are removable, you’ll be able to eat and drink what you want throughout treatment. If you want to hear more about the benefits of this revolutionary treatment, give the McCue Dental Health team a call, or stop by our office!
How to Care for Your Clear Aligners
Invisalign treatment involves removable aligners, so you’ll be responsible for caring for them and cleaning them every day. To keep your aligners clean and clear, it’s important to rinse them after removing them to eat or sleep. Always brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in. Every night and morning, brush your aligners gently and rinse them out with clear, soft soap. The success of Invisalign depends on how well you take care of your aligners, so be sure to be attentive and responsible throughout your treatment!
Get the Most Out of Invisalign Treatment
Caring for your aligners is important to ensure that you get the desired results from your treatment, but it’s also important to make sure that you are wearing your aligners properly. To get the most out of your treatment, you will need to wear your aligners for 20-22 per day. This means that you will need to keep them in while you sleep, and remember to put your aligners back in after you eat and brush your teeth. If you ever have any questions about your treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at McCue Dental Health!
Information About Invisalign From McCue Dental Health
I’m not worried about how my teeth look, why would I need Invisalign?
There are many reasons besides esthetics why Invisalign may be recommended for you. Crowded make brushing and flossing difficult making you more prone to cavities and periodontal disease. An uneven bite or teeth with too much spacing can lead to issues where some teeth take more force on them than others. This can lead to tooth movement over time as the bone around the teeth goes away.
Is Invisalign as good as traditional braces?
Invisalign can achieve most of the same tooth movements as traditional braces with less disruption to your lifestyle. Schedule a free consult with Dr. McCue to discuss if it may be the right choice for you!
Is Invisalign painful?
During your treatment, you will change the clear aligner you are wearing every 10 days-2 weeks. Because we are very gradually moving teeth, there is minimal pressure placed on the teeth at a time. Some patients find it helps to take some over the counter pain medication in the first few days after changing aligners but most report that pain and pressure are mild.
How long do you have to wear Invisalign aligners?
Your goal should be to wear the aligners for 22 hours a day. This gives some leeway for removing them to eat, drink and brush your teeth.
Can you eat with aligners in?
Aligners are not made to stay in while eating. They should be taken out and put back in as soon as you are done. You can drink cool, clear liquids with the aligners in but anything hot can warp the material and colored liquids may stain them.
What are Invisalign buttons?
Attachments, also called buttons, are anchor points for the aligners to grab a hold of to assist with pushing and pulling teeth. They are made of tooth colored filling materials so they’re nearly invisible, unlike metal brackets.
If you have any questions about Invisalign treatment or think it might be right for you, schedule a free consult with Dr. McCue! We are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
