Invisalign

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to fix misalignment or bite issues. Each set is worn for two weeks at a time, allowing the aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place. The aligners are removable, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks throughout the treatment. Invisalign treatment requires fewer visits to the dentist compared to traditional braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Before your treatment begins, we will take photos, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth. You will receive your first set of aligners between one and four weeks later. As you progress through your treatment, you will switch to a new aligner set every two weeks. The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for people with a busy lifestyle. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. That means you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth, as well as eat your favorite foods. You can also remove them for certain occasions, so your smile will look bright and clean in pictures. Since Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, they stay perfectly under disguise even when you talk or smile.

Invisalign Treatment Duration

Many patients find that Invisalign aligners take less time to shift misaligned teeth into position than traditional braces do. Invisalign treatment typically takes one year, although this is completely dependent on the severity of your case. During your initial consultation, our dentist will be able to estimate how long your treatment will take.

During the treatment, you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions or food restrictions since Invisalign aligners are removable. You can simply take out the aligners when it’s time to eat. You also won’t have to worry about brushing or flossing around brackets and wires.

Does Invisalign Hurt?

Invisalign is a popular choice for teens and adults who are looking to straighten their teeth. It uses virtually invisible, removable aligners to slowly straighten teeth over time. Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable. They are unlikely to cause irritation to the gums and cheeks.

Does Invisalign Work Better Than Braces?

Many patients ask if Invisalign works better than braces. The truth is both are effective forms of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign works well for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. However, braces are still better for treating serious misalignment and bite issues. We recommend you discuss your oral condition with our dentist, and they will help you determine the most suitable orthodontic solution for you.
