Welcome to Black Point Dental, where we offer Invisalign® services to help you achieve beautiful, straight teeth. Dr. Ferguson and our team understand that the appearance of your teeth is important to you, and we are here to help you achieve your desired results.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic, making them almost invisible to others. With Invisalign®, you can take them off for eating, brushing, and flossing, making them a convenient option. Our aligners are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth and work gradually to straighten them over time.
At Black Point Dental, Dr. Ferguson is committed to helping patients achieve straight, beautiful, even teeth with Invisalign® aligners. During your consultation, Dr. Ferguson will examine your teeth to determine the extent of correction needed.
He will also take X-rays and capture a 3D model of your teeth to send to the Invisalign® laboratory. The laboratory will craft custom-made aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth and gradually straighten them over time.
Dr. Ferguson will also discuss how long you will need to wear the aligners to achieve optimal results. He will explain how, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Once your aligners are crafted and received in the office, your second appointment with Dr. Ferguson will be scheduled.
During this appointment, he will have you try on your aligners and make any necessary adjustments to ensure they fit comfortably. Dr. Ferguson will also provide instructions on properly caring for your aligners and maintaining good oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
Once your aligners are ready, you will need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only when you eat, floss, or brush your teeth. Initially, the aligners may feel tight, but you should not experience any pain.
Over time, your teeth will gradually shift to new positions as you progress through your treatment.
Throughout your treatment, Dr. Ferguson will schedule regular appointments to monitor your progress and give you a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks. The process will continue until you reach your goal.
On average, Invisalign® treatment takes a year or less. You can trust Dr. Ferguson to help you achieve the smile of your dreams with Invisalign®.
Invisalign® braces are a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. They are a great alternative to traditional metal braces for those who want a more discreet option.
Ideal candidates for Invisalign® braces include:
- Adults or teenagers with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
- People who want a more comfortable and discreet option than traditional braces.
- Those who have good oral hygiene habits and are committed to wearing the aligners as directed by their dentist.
Invisalign® is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces, using clear, custom-made aligners to shift teeth into new positions gently. While metal braces use brackets and wires to apply pressure to teeth, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
One key difference between Invisalign® and metal braces is the level of comfort. Invisalign® aligners are made from a smooth plastic that doesn't irritate the cheeks and gums like metal brackets and wires can. Additionally, no sharp edges or wires require adjustments, which can cause discomfort and soreness.
Another advantage of Invisalign® is the convenience factor. Patients can remove the aligners when eating, so there are no restrictions on which foods can be eaten. Brushing and flossing are also easier since the aligners can be taken out, whereas metal braces require special tools to clean around the brackets and wires.
Invisalign® is also a great option for those who want a more discreet orthodontic treatment. The clear aligners are barely noticeable, making them a popular choice for adults and teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces.
Overall, Invisalign® offers a comfortable, convenient, and discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.
Are you considering braces, but the thought of metal brackets and wires makes you cringe? Invisalign® may be the solution you're looking for!
