Las Vegas area patients who are seeking a method to straighten misaligned teeth without braces are encouraged to call Hillside Dental to learn more about Invisalign. Dr. Christopher Lim and his team provide this treatment for teenagers and adults who want to straighten their smile without the use of metal brackets and wires. This method instead utilizes clear aligner trays for a more discreet solution.
This treatment is also known as the aligner tray treatment. Instead of using brackets and wires that push teeth into better positions, this method utilizes plastic trays that conform to the teeth within the smile. These trays are fabricated using impressions of the natural smile to ensure that they fit snug over the dental arch and provide just enough force to achieve results.
Compliance is incredibly important when it comes to seeing the results within the expected period of time, while also reducing the likelihood of extra costs for fabricating more trays. Dr. Christopher Lim educates patients on how to use their trays. Each tray is to be worn day and night for two weeks before the next tray in the series is utilized. While the trays are removable, they should only be taken out for brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking.
