Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth? Are you looking for a way to realign your smile? Try Invisalign. Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that gradually straightens teeth over time.

The team at Perfect Smiles of Doylestown offers Invisalign treatment in Doylestown, PA. They collaborate with patients to find the best orthodontic solution to meet their needs. With Invisalign, patients receive customized treatment to fit their budgets and goals.
Invisalign Treatment in Doylestown, PA
Before treatment, we consult our patients on their cosmetic goals for their smiles. Invisalign is best for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. We will ensure that Invisalign is a good fit for our patients.
To begin treatment, we take x-rays of the teeth. Then, in order to create the custom-made Invisalign aligners, we take dental impressions. We create a 3-D digital model of the teeth with these impressions to create a blueprint for your treatment plan. In addition, we send the impressions to a dental lab where technicians create the aligners.
When the aligners are complete, we make sure that they fit comfortably. You will wear the aligners for 22 hours a day and each pair of aligners for two weeks. Each set of aligners is different and slightly shifts the teeth into a straighter position.

How does Invisalign compare to traditional braces?
Traditional braces use brackets and wires to straighten the smile. It is often difficult to clean between these wires. Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can thoroughly brush and floss their teeth. Additionally, because the aligners are removable, patients do not have any dietary restrictions against hard or chewy foods.
At routine appointments, orthodontists need to tighten braces brackets which can cause soreness and pain. Invisalign does not require many adjustments as each aligner conforms to the smile.
Does Invisalign treatment hurt?
No, although you may feel soreness as you get used to each new pair of aligners, this will fade. Many patients get used to their new aligners in no time. Alternatively, metal braces have wires that can easily irritate and poke the gums. At routine appointments, orthodontists add new wires to secure the brackets that can cause bleeding or irritated gums.
How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?
When your aligners are on, we will ask that you refrain from eating or drinking anything other than water. Remove your aligners and then brush your teeth before you place your aligners. In addition, for a deep clean, soak your Invisalign aligners in mouthguard cleaner. Dental cleaners typically come in a powder form that dissolves in water. Soaking your aligners daily keeps them fresh and free of stains.
