Teenagers and adolescents aren’t the only ones who can benefit from braces. Many adults still believe that the best way to attain straighter teeth and correct alignment requires traditional wire-and-bracket braces, but this isn’t true. Invisalign can provide adults and teens with an excellent smile without changing their lifestyle. Find out more about Invisalign treatment with Dr. Gyurina in Madison, WI today!

How Does Invisalign® Work?
A series of clear plastic trays like a mouthguard is used in a series with minor corrections that will gradually make the change from your current smile to the smile you’ve always dreamed of. In 12 to 18 months, you can have a permanent lasting change in your smile without unsightly wire-and-bracket braces.
Dr. Gyurina’s Invisalign Treatment
The Invisalign procedure begins with a 3D scan of your mouth to represent the position and alignment of your teeth before treatment. From this scan, Dr. Gyurina and the Invisalign lab work together to produces an image of what your teeth should look like after treatment is completed. A series of incremental images are then digitally produced. The aligner trays are manufactured based on these intermediate images.
You will wear each Invisalign aligner for two weeks, then transition to a new one. Each aligner moves your teeth a certain amount, and in the end, you will achieve the smile you desire. Depending upon the amount of correction you need, your full treatment could take 9-18 months. Typically, you will change to a new aligner about every 2 weeks, and see Dr. Gyurina for an evaluation about every 8 weeks.
Treatment with Invisalign Details
In order for Invisalign treatment to proceed on schedule, trays must be left in the mouth for at least 22 hours each day to achieve optimum results, removing only for eating or cleaning. It is an excellent option for many types of orthodontic correction, but to ensure your particular case will respond well to this procedure, Dr. Gyurina will need to evaluate your bite, as well as the alignment and condition of your teeth.
Advantages of Invisalign® Treatment
Dr. Gyurina recommends Invisalign for patients that wish to maintain their current lifestyle and appearance, but who need orthodontic correction to improve their life, health, and smile.
Invisalign’s clear trays are removable for special occasions or to eat
Since Invisalign orthodontics don’t use wires and brackets, there’s nothing to irritate your cheeks, tongue, or lips
Eat What You Want
Since you remove the Invisalign® trays when you eat, your diet isn’t affected during treatment
You simply remove the trays for cleaning and brush them with toothpaste or a mild rinse. Then you brush and floss your teeth like normal.
Our patients talk about how their friends and coworkers don’t even know they’ve been getting orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign’s tray system yields comparable treatment time to wire and bracket braces so you won’t be in treatment longer than with braces.
