At Hoskinson Orthodontics it is our goal to give each one of our patients the best in orthodontic care in a comfortable and professional environment. Dr. Hoskinson and his friendly team are committed to making your orthodontic experience as pleasant as possible as we create your new beautiful smile. We know that starting the orthodontic process can be intimidating for some people, especially adults, and that is why we are happy to be able to provide multiple options. If you are an adult patient looking for a way to achieve the straight smile you have always dreamed of then we encourage you to read on about the Invisalign system.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses clear aligners without the use of brackets or wires in order to straighten your smile. These clear aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps until Dr. Hoskinson has reached his desired final positioning of your teeth. When you are evaluated by Dr. Hoskinson for Invisalign he will determine a treatment plan that is specific for your case and aligners will be fitted for your mouth.
The Invisalign system works by slowly moving your teeth into the desired position by your orthodontist, Dr. Hoskinson. Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to sequence aligners to straighten your smile. Each case is different and a patient can require anywhere from 12 to 48 aligners throughout the orthodontic process. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and will then be replaced by the next set of aligners. As each aligner is replaced, your teeth will gradually begin to move to their prescribed positions. Before you know it you will have the smile that you have always wanted.
One of the biggest benefits of using the Invisalign system for adults is the fact that these aligners are virtually invisible. Another benefit is being able to remove these aligners to eat and drink and also to brush and floss teeth regularly. Dr. Hoskinson recommends that you put your aligners directly back into place once you have finished eating, brushing or flossing so that you do not hinder your orthodontic progress. Lastly there is the most valuable benefit of all, a beautiful straight smile!
