What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign system is a system of clear, plastic aligners that are used by adults and teens who wish to straighten their teeth. Orthodontics treatments using Invisalign usually entail wearing each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before a new set can be worn. Every set of aligners moves your teeth a little bit more each time, which will advance the process of your orthodontic treatment.
The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you can hardly feel (or see) when you wear them. The aligners can be taken out to eat, brush, and floss as usual. As the trays are removable, you can also enjoy many of the foods you love without making changes to your diet!
What will Invisalign® do for me?
Invisalign is designed to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional metal brackets and wires. Meaning there is less disruption to your life and an easier journey to the smile of your dreams. With Invisalign, you can correct a wide range of orthodontic concerns, and it is proven to be faster than many other alternatives. Here are just some of the conditions that can be treated through Invisalign treatment:
- Smile gaps
How does it work?
Initially, our dentists will make a series of impressions of your teeth and gums. From these molds, custom aligners are created. Each set of aligners moves your teeth incrementally, gradually shifting them into the proper position. Your teeth alignment will be checked every eight to twelve weeks, with follow-up visits scheduled as necessary.
How long will it take?
The number of aligner sets you need to wear during treatment varies based on your specific bite alignment; typically this is between 20 and 30 clear trays. Treatment time varies by patient but averages between six and fifteen months. We recommend wearing aligners for 22 hours a day, to increase compliance and effectiveness.
