Have you accidentally lost your orthodontic retainers or have your teeth moved? Interested in using Invisalign to restraighten them? This is actually a very commonplace scenario and patients talk with us about options almost every day. Many times, the teeth have moved to such a degree that our patients want to know what it would take to straighten them.
These are ideal cases for Invisalign. Treating post-orthodontic relapse is very common and for most patients Invisalign is key.
Many people have seen the ads for Invisalign or clear aligners. This technology has made incredible advances over the years but is still rooted in basic principles of orthodontics, i.e. slow, steady movement over time.
Invisalign trays are difficult for your friends and family to even realize that you’re wearing them. No longer do you have to feel socially awkward in the boardroom or in a social setting: Invisalign is very discrete.
If the case is simple, it could take as little as a few months to get that perfect smile back. And this is a point that should be emphasized:
If you notice your teeth are moving, it will be an easier and quicker fix if something is done before the teeth have had a chance to move any farther.
Once we create that perfect Invisalign smile, there are several options for keeping your teeth in place and the team at 58 Dental can talk with you about your options. But remember:Mother nature encourages your teeth to return to their original position. Retainers have to be worn forever to keep your teeth in their perfect position.
Advances in technology have been so beneficial to our dental patients and often problems can be solved easier than ever before. The team at 58 Dental in Denver, Colorado would love to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.
