What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of clear, removable dental implements which straighten and align teeth so that they are in a better position in a patient’s mouth. These implements create similar results to traditional metal braces, although they push teeth into place rather than pulling them into position.

Invisalign treatment is a suitable choice for minor orthodontic problems, including Crowded teeth, Crooked teeth, Overbite, Underbite, Crossbite, Open bite, and Gaps between teeth.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Your Invisalign treatment starts with an initial dental consultation. We’ll scan your mouth, talk about your concerns, and decide whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. If you are, we’ll create a customized treatment plan for you. The scans we take will help us create your first series of Invisalign aligners.
Over the treatment period, you’ll wear a series of aligners. Each one will be shaped slightly different to make small adjustments to your mouth. Many patients change their sets of aligners every one to two weeks.
Regular dental checkups every four to six weeks help us monitor your progress and make any adjustments we need to get the results you want. They also give our patients the opportunity to ask any questions they have about their treatment. Treatment times vary depending on how much work needs to be done, but many patients wear their Invisalign aligners for between 12 and 18 months.

The Benefits of Invisalign Over Braces

As a modern orthodontic technique, Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. In the past, patients may have felt self-conscious about metal braces. Since Invisalign aligners are clear, they are virtually undetectable. This feature helps patients smile with confidence in their selfies.

Traditional braces are fixed in place during the treatment period, but Invisalign braces are removable. While we encourage patients to wear them during most of their daily activities, including sleeping, we recommend removing them for brushing and flossing. This removal allows patients to clean their aligners and their teeth more thoroughly for better oral and periodontal health. Since the aligners can be cleaned more easily, patients with Invisalign don’t need to restrict their diet choices.

Wearing traditional braces can be painful. The metal wires and brackets can be abrasive in the mouth. Invisalign aligners don’t contain these components, and they’re much more comfortable. Since the aligners are all custom-made implements, created with individual patients in mind, they also tend to feel more natural in the mouth. You can experience a little tenderness when changing to a new aligner, but this feeling usually passes quickly as the mouth adjusts.
