How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually shift teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are made from a smooth plastic material and are worn over the teeth, exerting gentle pressure to guide them into alignment. The treatment process begins with a consultation where impressions of the teeth are taken to create a 3D model. Once the custom aligners are fabricated, patients wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, progressing to the next set as the teeth move. Regular check-ups with our team are scheduled to monitor progress and ensure the treatment stays on track.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers several benefits compared to traditional braces, making it an attractive option for many patients:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn, allowing patients to straighten their teeth discreetly without the noticeable appearance of metal braces.
  • Comfort: The smooth plastic material of Invisalign aligners is more comfortable than traditional braces, with no sharp edges or wires to irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Removability: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing patients to take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This convenience makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene and enjoy favorite foods without restrictions.
  • Predictable Results: Invisalign treatment utilizes advanced digital technology to plan and predict the movement of teeth accurately. Patients can visualize their treatment progress and expected outcomes before starting treatment.
  • Fewer Office Visits: While regular check-ups with our team are necessary to monitor progress, Invisalign typically requires fewer in-office visits compared to traditional braces, as there are no adjustments or wire changes needed.

Is Invisalign suitable for everyone?

While Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment option, it may not be suitable for everyone. Invisalign is most effective for treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and more severe or complex cases may require traditional braces or alternative treatments. Additionally, Invisalign requires a certain level of commitment and compliance from the patient, as the aligners need to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day and changed regularly according to the treatment plan.

However, Invisalign is often a great choice for many patients, especially those who want to achieve a straight, symmetrical smile quickly and discreetly. To learn more about Invisalign or schedule your consultation, please contact us!
