What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth faster and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. Thousands of orthodontists in the United States and Canada use Invisalign to accurately and effectively treat their patients. Invisalign aligners are:

  • Completely Invisible Invisalign aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them! Friends, family members, and co-workers may never even know you are in treatment unless, of course, you tell them!
  • Comfortable To Wear The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won’t irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
  • Customized Just For You Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Poyadou uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth, then he customizes each aligner so that it fits your mouth, and over time moves your teeth into the proper position.
  • Removable Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss, and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
  • Effective You will begin to notice a significant difference even before your treatment is complete! Most treatments are completed within one year; however, this can vary from patient to patient.

Why Consider Invisalign

People everywhere are beginning to experience the benefits of Invisalign treatment. Here’s why people just like you are choosing Invisalign over traditional braces:

With Invisalign, you can have a straighter, healthier smile without all the noticeable wires and brackets of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are removable making it easy for you to enjoy the foods you love without worrying about breaking or bending your brackets and wires. You can also remove your Invisalign aligners to brush and floss regularly.

You don’t need to change anything about your current lifestyle! With Invisalign, you can continue participating in day-to-day activities without changing a thing. Invisalign is great for professionals, athletes, brides, and parents.

Office visits and checkups are easy, quick, and painless. Fewer appointments are required throughout your entire treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

When you begin your Invisalign treatment you will receive several sets of custom fit aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for only two weeks. After two weeks you can switch your aligners with the next set and continue straightening your teeth. Over time you will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth and in just a few months you will have a straighter, healthier smile.

Invisalign For Kids

At Empower Orthodontics in Covington, LA, we’re committed to providing the best orthodontic solutions for every member of your family, including the youngest ones. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce Invisalign First, a specialized treatment designed specifically for children.

Invisalign First is an innovative approach to early orthodontic treatment. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners tailored to address the unique needs of growing children. What sets Invisalign First apart is its ability to correct a broad range of teeth straightening issues even while baby teeth are still present. This includes issues such as crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches. The aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, and less noticeable than traditional braces, making them an excellent choice for active, growing kids.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation no later than age seven. This is typically the age when the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite and enabling the orthodontist to spot current or potential issues. Early intervention can guide proper jaw growth, correct harmful oral habits, and help guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position.

While Invisalign First may not be suitable for all cases, it’s a game-changer for many children. Early treatment can prevent more severe problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. By starting early, we can take a proactive approach to your child’s oral health, potentially saving time and money in the future.

At Empower Orthodontics, we understand that each child is unique, and so are their orthodontic needs. Therefore, our team, led by Dr. Tim, is committed to providing personalized care that suits your child’s specific requirements. We use the latest techniques and technologies, like Invisalign First, to ensure the most comfortable and effective treatment.

In conclusion, early orthodontic treatment with Invisalign First can offer numerous benefits for your child’s oral health, appearance, and self-confidence. It’s a clear, comfortable solution that allows your child to live their life without the restrictions of traditional braces. Contact us today at Empower Orthodontics to schedule an evaluation and see if Invisalign First is the right choice for your child’s smile.
