Invisalign

InvisalignWhen you’re looking for effective orthodontic treatments in or around Lafayette, LA, we at Oubre Orthodontics strive to be your choice. With our commitment toward keeping up with the latest in state-of-the-art technology and treatment, we’re more than capable of giving you a straight and healthy smile through the most convenient orthodontic treatments possible. One of these treatments that we’re proud to offer in our Lafayette office is Invisalign, often referred to as a ‘clear aligner therapy’ treatment.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is essentially the braces alternative. Instead of using highly-visible metal brackets and wires to shift a patient’s teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic aligner sets to straighten a smile. These aligner sets are generated with the help of advanced 3-D computer technology. You’ll need to wear each set in its designated order for about two weeks at a time (or otherwise directed by the orthodontist). After you’ve worn the first set for two weeks, you’ll then wear the next set and continue until you’ve worn all of the aligners. Even though these aligners are removable, you’ll still need to keep them in for at least 22 hours a day in order to ensure that the treatment is effective.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a number of benefits when compared to traditional braces. Just a sample of these include the following:

  • These clear aligners offer a discreet form of orthodontic treatment; others won’t even be able to tell that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
  • Because you can remove the aligners, cleaning your teeth remains as simple as ever.
  • Also, you don’t have to modify your diet at all. With braces, you’d have to avoid certain foods because of the damage they could potentially cause to your orthodontic brackets. That’s not the case with Invisalign since you just remove your aligners before you eat.
  • The aligners are made of polyurethane plastic, granting your mouth more comfort than the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces.
  • If you suffer from teeth grinding, Invisalign will act as a night guard to help protect your teeth.
