With both Invisalign First Step and Invisalign Next Step, we at Capehart Family Dentistry have the advanced solutions for your teeth alignment concerns. Let us help you to enjoy a more appealing smile and a higher degree of oral wellness with our braces in Bellevue NE.
Invisalign is the revolutionary alternative to metal braces, the traditional way to straighten teeth. You won’t wear a single set of braces, but a different one every two weeks. Most patients will average a total of between 18 and 30 over the course of their treatment. We use state-of-the-art 3D computer software to design our braces in Bellevue NE. We then send them to the Invisalign laboratory where they make them to precise standards. When two weeks go by, take out the set you’re wearing and replace them with the next in the series. Yes, they’re removable, and you can do it on your own. When should you take out Invisalign braces? Other than to change to the next one, you should only take them out to brush, floss, and eat. Incidentally, with metal braces, you have to avoid an extensive list of foods that can create complications, such as crunchy, chewy, and sticky options. Not so with our braces in Bellevue NE. Take them out and eat anything you’re in the mood for. Simply come in once per six week period so that your progress can be assessed. Otherwise, you don’t have to make visits to our office during your treatment unless a problem comes up, which is very unlikely. Even mouth soreness and irritation is unheard of with Invisalign, unlike with metal braces.
