Invisalign in Richmond – Faster Orthodontics With Remote Monitoring
If you’re looking to fix your crooked teeth with clear aligners, then you’ve come to the right place. Every patient is unique, and every smile is different, which is why we offer a variety of clear aligner options including Invisalign. Richmond patients are sure to find a type of aligner that fits their dental needs and budget.
At our clinic in Richmond, Invisalign is the brand that most people recognise and we have utilised it since 2006. Many of our patients who previously would never have considered traditional braces for crooked teeth are now happily undergoing orthodontic treatment either with Invisalign or another of our clear braces options in Richmond such as Angelalign, ClearCorrect, Proligner and Suresmile. The TLC dentists each have certifications in orthodontics and are all Invisalign certified.
Why Choose Clear Aligners?
Made from transparent medical grade plastic, clear aligners are often erroneously referred to as clear braces. Richmond patients looking to straighten their teeth subtly, prefer this type of orthodontic treatment over traditional wire braces because it allows them to straighten their teeth with a less obvious appearance than braces .
Clear aligners like Invisalign offer Richmond patients another advantage in that they are removed before eating and drinking (anything other than water) and to brush and floss your teeth. Without wires getting in the way, maintaining oral hygiene is a breeze.
So now you know the benefits of clear aligners in Richmond, let’s take a look at how they work and more specifically what’s involved in Invisalign treatment.
How Clear Aligners Work
Aligners apply gentle pressure to gradually ease your teeth into their new position, forcing the body to adapt by remodelling the bone. Before Invisalign treatment can begin, our Richmond dentist will use 3D computer software to design and a series of clear aligners that will move your teeth into different positions on the journey to their end destination.
Typically, patients start by wearing their first set of aligners for around 14 days before discarding them and replacing them with the next set in the series. On average Invisalign treatment time takes between 12-26 months.
The good news is that at TLC dentists Richmond, we are one of the first general dentists to use a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and remote monitoring during your Invisalign treatment so we can tell you when it’s time to change your aligners. Depending on how fast your teeth move, this can shorten your treatment time significantly.
Once your last set of aligners has been worn, Richmond patients can expect to have achieved their goal of a perfect selfie-ready smile!
Benefits of Remote Monitoring
Whether you undergo Invisalign treatment or opt for another clear aligner system, AI and remote monitoring offer several benefits.
