When your Invisalign treatment plan is created, your dentist at Carmichael’s Marconi Dental Group orders a series of customized clear aligners. Designed and crafted just for you, your trays are made from toxin-free plastics and designed to avoid irritating your cheeks and gums.
When your custom trays arrive in Carmichael, you’ll return for a short procedure to glue on some small, smooth, molded aligner attachment points to a few specific teeth. These are so small you can hardly notice them. The attachments will hold your straightening trays in place and apply the gentle pressure needed to get your teeth moving in the right direction. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign adds nothing to your mouth that will poke or irritate or cause pain. When it comes to straightening your smile, the term “No pain, no gain,” changes to “No pain, all gain!”
Your Carmichael dentist will educate you on how to use your aligners properly. New aligners are mailed to you about every two weeks. If you wear your trays for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, your treatment plan will stay on schedule. You can remove them for eating, for cleaning your teeth and for your very special social occasions where you want to show off your teeth as they get closer and closer to perfection!
