Originally, Invisalign aligners are for adults Fort Collins, CO, but now, they can also be for teens and kids. During an initial assessment, Dr. Hardy will take an impression of your teeth. Based on the impression, he will create an individualized treatment plan with a series of custom-made, clear aligners to take home with you. You will wear the customized aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day in periods of two to three weeks at a time before moving on to the next aligner in the series. The series of aligners will gradually shift your teeth into a more desirable position. You can remove your aligners as necessary for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Most patients usually do not experience any significant pain or discomfort with Invisalign®. The number of aligners needed and the total length of treatment can vary based upon your individual needs. Typically, Invisalign® patients may need 18 to 30 aligners for a period of 9 to 15 months in order to receive their desired results. Throughout treatment, you will meet with Dr. Hardy every now and then so he can ensure your treatment for Invisalign Fort Collins is working successfully.
