Invisalign Specialists in Jackson

Invisalign offers a great alternative for teens and adults seeking the benefits of traditional braces with added flexibility and freedom. Sandifer Orthodontics is your go-to for aligning smiles across all age groups in Jackson, Brandon, and nearby areas.

How Does Invisalign Work in Jackson?

Invisalign uses a set of clear, detachable aligners to straighten your teeth and enhance dental health. Following the recommended guidelines, Invisalign is equally effective as traditional braces for addressing a wide range of orthodontic issues.

During your first visit, we'll take x-rays and digital scans to generate an accurate 3D model of your teeth. This model helps us create aligners that are a perfect fit for your smile. Made from a smooth and comfortable material, these aligners snugly cover your teeth and are updated every one to two weeks to match the progression of your teeth as they shift to their new positions.

Why Opt for Invisalign in Jackson?

The near invisibility of Invisalign aligners stands out as one of their key advantages, along with the convenience of being removable. This design allows you to take out your aligners before meals or when drinking anything besides water, eliminating concerns about food getting trapped as it might with traditional braces. This removability also simplifies brushing and flossing, facilitating a more effective oral hygiene routine, crucial during orthodontic care.

The freedom to eat and drink without restrictions is a significant benefit, as dietary limitations can often be a challenging aspect of traditional braces. With Invisalign, you're free to enjoy your favorite foods while on your journey to a straighter smile. It's important to remove aligners before eating to prevent staining and to clean them regularly with warm water.

Invisalign also eliminates the discomfort of sharp wires and the need for adjustment appointments, though regular check-ups every 6-8 weeks are necessary to monitor progress.

Understanding the Invisalign Process in Jackson

The process with Invisalign is straightforward. You wear each set of aligners for roughly two weeks, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress to the next set in the series, your teeth gradually shift into their correct positions.

At Sandifer Orthodontics, we'll ensure your treatment is on track. Adhering to the schedule for changing aligners and wearing them as directed is crucial for achieving the best results with Invisalign. Custom-fitted to your dental needs, the aligners need regular updating to match your teeth's movement as they align. Failing to follow the schedule or missing check-ups can reverse progress.

Each patient's response to orthodontic treatment varies. Invisalign's gentle, non-invasive approach means treatment duration can differ, typically ranging from 6 to 18 months, depending on individual compliance.

Effective treatment relies on wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours daily throughout the process. Deviating from this routine can extend the treatment period. Success with Invisalign depends on consistent adherence to the treatment plan.
