What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to fix your bite issues and align your teeth without uncomfortable braces or wires. Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit your teeth and gradually move your smile to the proper position, a process that can take up to 12 months. Invisalign is recommended for both adults and teens alike, and can help you restore your smile to the smile you have always wanted.
How does Invisalign differ from traditional braces?
Invisalign offers an assortment of benefits over braces, perhaps the most notable being that braces cannot be missed and Invisalign cannot be seen. Being able to correct your smile with a virtually invisible aligner helps both teens and adults maintain their self-esteem and eliminates issues like teasing and bullying. Invisalign also removes the fear of cuts or abrasions in your mouth, and can be worn even during sports activities. Another benefit is that Invisalign can be removed to allow you to eat the food you want without particles getting stuck. Unlike braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners and brush and floss normally, eliminating the tooth staining and discoloration that can occur with traditional braces. You clean your Invisalign aligners separately.
How do Invisalign aligners straighten teeth?
In order to determine the correct treatment plan you will be administered to digital x-rays that are a 3-D image of your teeth, your dentist will also get dental impressions and pictures. Your aligners will be created in a professional dental lab and will correct your teeth over a 12 month period. Every two to four weeks, you will switch to the next stage of aligners, and you need only return to our office for checkups every six weeks.
