What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is like invisible braces for your teeth. Invisalign aligners are clear, removable, and comfortable trays that are worn over your teeth. They gradually shift your teeth into the correct position with a series of custom-designed trays for a straighter, more functional smile. Invisalign uses an advanced material called SmartTrack® to place gentle, yet effective force on your teeth to move them into the optimal position.
While Invisalign cannot be used in all cases, it can be a great option for many patients with mild to moderate issues such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Mild gaps between teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
Why Choose Invisalign
Everyone is familiar with traditional metal-and-bracket braces – in addition to being uncomfortable and restrictive, they are just plain unsightly and can cause embarrassment for patients who want a more discreet option for straightening their teeth. That’s where Invisalign comes in! Invisalign for adults and teens is a technologically advanced and highly effective way to shift the placement of your teeth into a beautiful, straight position, and the best part is that no one will even notice that you are doing it.
There are many benefits of Invisalign aligners for a broad variety of patients. When you compare Invisalign and braces, Invisalign comes out on top in many ways.
- Invisalign treatment is often shorter than traditional braces; because the aligners are typically switched out every two weeks, which is more frequent than adjustments are made for metal braces, they can shift your teeth into the optimal position in less time
- The custom-designed clear aligners are smooth, soft, and much more comfortable than metal brackets and wires, which can come undone and poke your mouth or cause sores on your soft tissues
- The aligners are fully removable, which means that you can eat and drink anything you want and participate in all your normal activities without worrying about popping brackets off your teeth
- You can brush and floss your teeth as usual instead of working around brackets and wires, which means that your teeth and gums are less susceptible to decay and inflammation
- The clear aligners for Invisalign are virtually invisible, which means no one needs to know that you are straightening your teeth
The Invisalign treatment process
In a personalized consultation, the doctor will examine your teeth and bite and discuss what you like and what you want to change about your smile. We will take advanced 3D images of your mouth and use computer technology to plan out your treatment. We will even show you what your results look like before you even begin your treatment!
If you decide to move forward with treatment, a series of custom-designed clear aligners will be specially made for you. We will provide you with thorough instructions when you receive your aligners about how long to wear them during the day and night, how to take care of your aligners, and how frequently you should switch them out for the next set. In general, most patients receive between 18 and 30 aligner sets and change them out every two weeks. We will schedule regular check-up appointments to ensure that your treatment is progressing as expected and to monitor your results. Many patients begin seeing straighter teeth within just a few months, and the average treatment duration is about one year.
