Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method that uses custom-made aligners to correct teeth misalignment. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are clear and fit snuggly over your teeth. The trays can be removed while eating or brushing and flossing so that there are no food restrictions or oral hygiene complications like with metal braces. Plus, the aligners are made from a smooth plastic material that is comfortable and does not cause any irritation.
To complete the treatment, you will need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day and change them as directed. Each new set of aligners will slowly move your teeth into place until the desired results are achieved. By choosing Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment, you’re one step closer to having the straight and healthy smile you’ve always wanted!
Benefits of Invisalign
1. It is able to straighten teeth faster than traditional braces. You also only need to change your aligners yourself every two weeks instead of having to come into the dental office to have the wires tightened more frequently.
2. Many teens and adults prefer Invisalign because it is discreet. You can remove the aligners to eat or drink, as well as for special occasions so people won’t even know that you are straightening your teeth.
3. Since you can remove the aligners while eating, you don’t have to worry about any food restrictions like you would with traditional braces.
Does Invisalign Work?
Yes! Thousands of cases have been treated with Invisalign, and we are happy to say that they have a very high success rate. While each case is unique, we have found that most patients achieve the desired results from their treatment in about the same amount of time as traditional braces and sometimes even less.
Of course, the treatment time depends on the complexity of the case as well. Some patients may need longer or shorter treatments than others do. If your case is on the more complicated side, we will make sure to discuss this with you specifically during your consultation appointment.
