Invisalign Tulsa, OK

Do you want a straighter smile but don’t want braces? Try Invisalign. Invisalign is a great option for adults who want to straighten their smile discreetly because Invisalign uses clear aligners to shift teeth into more even positions. This cosmetic dental treatment can create a more even bite and address problems like crooked teeth, tooth gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Dr. Jerome Cha provides Invisalign treatment to patients in his Tulsa, OK, dental office.

Invisalign Treatment in Tulsa, OK

Before Invisalign treatment, Dr. Cha will examine your smile and take dental X-rays to plan treatment. He will determine your specific orthodontic issues and if you qualify for Invisalign treatment. Dr. Cha will then take dental impressions to send to a dental lab. Lab technicians will create pairs of aligners made of clear, durable plastic.

Dr. Cha will fit the first pair of Invisalign aligners on your teeth to ensure that they fit. You will switch out each pair of aligners for a new pair every two weeks. Each pair is different and gently applies pressure to the teeth, shifting them into a straighter position. On average, Invisalign treatment can take as little as 6 to 12 months. This treatment time will depend on how long you wear your aligners each day and the extent of your orthodontic problems. We recommend that patients wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can eat without dietary restrictions. Patients who undergo treatment with metal dental braces need to avoid crunchy, sticky, or hard foods. Invisalign patients can remove their aligners to eat and enjoy the foods they love. You can also clean your teeth and your aligners separately. Using a mouthguard soak or Invisalign crystals to clean your aligners will prevent staining. 

After you complete your Invisalign treatment, we will provide you with retainers. Retainers prevent problems like orthodontic relapse, which occurs when patients fail to wear their retainers. Teeth can move into their previous positions, creating crooked or overcrowded teeth. Wearing your retainers will keep your smile straight.
