Everything About Invisalign Aligners

Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth and are looking to align them? Invisalign aligners can be your go-to option if you want to align them discreetly. 

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are a set of clear, custom-fit mouth trays that you wear over your teeth to gently move them into a better position. While traditional braces use brackets and wires attached to your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, smooth plastic aligners that you wear to gradually shift your teeth into the proper place.

These aligners can be removed, which makes Invisalign a more comfortable and convenient orthodontic solution. Plus, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, so people won’t notice them unless you tell them.

How are Invisalign aligners fitted?

Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners – as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually – week by week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!

How do Invisalign aligners work?

Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material. This material is moldable, allowing your dentist to create a custom treatment plan for you. The aligners are worn at all times except for when eating and drinking or brushing and flossing. They gently move your teeth into the desired position.

Invisalign aligners can fix the following conditions:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Mild overbites and underbites
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth

How long does it take to straighten teeth with Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment takes about twelve months for most patients. Treatment length depends on the severity of the misalignment, but most patients can expect to need about 20 to 30 aligners.

This time frame allows patients to achieve their desired results without interfering with their daily lives. If patients have a busy lifestyle, Invisalign treatment may be the best option for straightening teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign aligners over other teeth-straightening options?

Invisalign aligners are completely removable, which means you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. But perhaps the biggest benefit is that Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
