What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are made of thin, clear plastic. The aligners are uniquely created for each patient at an off-site Invisalign lab. Your treatment plan will consist of a series of aligners designed to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. Every two weeks, you’ll discard your current aligner and move to the next. Unlike traditional braces, you will have the freedom to remove your aligners whenever you want. Simply take them off for brushing and flossing, when eating, or for special events. However, expect to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, to stay on track with your treatment plan.

Many patients report forgetting that they are wearing aligners, because they are comfortable and unnoticeable. You will not have to endure poking metal wires and brackets or painful rubber bands. Even better, you will not have adjustments that cause a sore mouth for days. Simply visit our office every six weeks so that the dentist can assess your progress.

Why Should You Choose Invisalign?

Crooked teeth and wide spaces between teeth can make a person feel self-conscious when speaking and smiling. It’s not unusual for dental imperfections to cause embarrassment, to the extent that you may try not to smile. If this describes how you feel, you probably do not want to wear unattractive wire braces for years to improve your smile. Invisalign offers an appealing alternative, with similar results.

Many patients invest in Invisalign because of its inconspicuous appearance. Your peers and coworkers will hardly notice your aligners, if at all. At the end of treatment, which usually lasts 12-18 months, you can expect drastic improvements to your smile. Your straight, perfectly aligned teeth will boost your confidence in all aspects of daily life – at home, work, and play.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Clear and inconspicuous appearance
  • Thin, malleable design for comfortable wear
  • Fast results; braces generally take two years or longer, and Invisalign takes just 12-18 months, in most cases
  • No wires, brackets, or bands to irritate soft oral tissues
  • No adjustment visits that leave the mouth sore for days

Caring for Invisalign

Flossing overlapping teeth can be quite cumbersome, as can cleaning teeth with braces attached. Invisalign to care for, and your teeth will quickly begin to shift, making flossing easier.

Similar to traditional orthodontic options, you will need to attend regular dental visits during the course of your treatment. Traditional braces require you to visit the dentist every six weeks. However, with Invisalign, we only need to assess your progress every six weeks, leaving you more time to attend to your busy schedule. At these appointments, we will assess the progress of your treatment and make sure the aligners are producing the most beneficial results. The dentist will also give you the next few aligners in your treatment plan.
