Maintaining excellent oral hygiene, with the assistance of your friendly neighborhood Oregon City Dental Care providers – Ponderosa Dental Arts, is an excellent step along the road to the perfect teeth and smile that you’ve always wanted. If you’re concerned with gap or alignment issues, and are looking to take your smile to the next level, orthodontics are an excellent option. However, traditional braces can oft-times be an obtrusive and time consuming choice. Brackets and wires are required, which can restrict your food choices, require extra effort when brushing and flossing, and can irritate your mouth. Luckily – Ponderosa Dental Arts is proud to be able to present to you an excellent alternative to traditional braces – Invisalign® nearly invisible braces.
These clear aligners are virtually invisible, made out of a smooth plastic, removable for ease of cleaning, and allow you to eat whatever you like. This cutting edge treatment can have a dramatic impact on creating and maintaining your most dazzling smile in far less time, and with drastically less inconvenience than traditional braces.
The beauty of Invisalign® is the fact that the trays are virtually invisible. You wear these trays all day and all night, and the only time you take them out is to eat and clean your teeth.
Invisalign® treatment is typically quicker than traditional braces and has the large benefit in that it does not involve cumbersome metal wires or bands. Here at Ponderosa Dental Arts, we have trays delivered every 2 weeks as it is a common cosmetic dental service that we offer.
Most of our patients chose Invisalign® because they didn’t wear their retainers after they had braces. Over time their teeth started moving back to where they were before they had braces, and Invisalign® provided a quick solution that moved their teeth back to where they were set after having braces. Other cases that are easily corrected with Invisalign® include minor to moderate crowding of the teeth, especially on the lower front teeth.
Ponderosa Dental Arts has 3 tiers of pricing that correlate to the length of treatment each patient receives. This varies from 10, 20, or 20+ weeks of treatment. Often times your orthodontic coverage on your dental insurance will cover the treatment.
A typical course for Invisalign® runs between 2 months and one year, with the average time of wearing them being 6 months.
The Invisalign® trays are easily placed in and are easy to remove. We ask you only remove them to eat and clean your teeth.
Rinse them with water and brush the insides with a toothbrush once a day.
