What is Invisalign?

The thought of wearing braces for a long period of time can cause many people to avoid teeth straightening treatments all together. For an easy and clear alternative to braces, there is Invisalign. Quite simply, Invisalign offers an invisible teeth straightening method without the hassle and pain of metal braces. Invisalign involves using a series of clear aligners that are made specifically for you. The invisible aligners are created with calculations to shift your teeth into the appropriate place. By using Invisalign, your teeth will gradually shift and move into place without sharp wires or metal brackets. Invisalign offers many advantages over braces to help make your teeth straightening experience as easy and comfortable as possible!

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign process occurs by using a different aligner every two weeks until the process is complete. Your Invisalign orthodontist will x-ray pictures and impressions of your teeth to better map out a treatment plan in the beginning. Exact movements of your teeth will be drawn out to better ensure a perfect smile! After this is complete, a custom set of clear aligners will be created for you. Once you have received your invisible aligners, just pop them in and wear them as directed.

We know that brackets and wires can cause interference with your everyday lives and they can be very uncomfortable, which is why Invisalign’s clear alternative to braces is above the rest. A little at a time, your teeth will begin shifting into the appropriate place. The aligners should be worn between 20 and 22 hours a day. Depending on how accurate and responsible you are with wearing your retainers, results can be seen quickly.

Invisalign offers a discreet and easy alternative to braces that is perfect for children and adults of all ages. You can look forward to getting the smile you have always wanted without anyone knowing you are straightening your teeth.
