Overview of Invisalign®

Invisalign® therapy is the ideal orthodontic solution for those who want to improve their smile but don’t want to cope with the ugly appearance or continual discomfort of metal braces. There are numerous advantages of using Invisalign® that make it appealing to people of all ages.

The Invisalign® technique employs clear aligner trays to gradually move your teeth into place. The trays are comprised of a clear, smooth material that is both comfortable and snugly fits against your teeth. Throughout your treatment, we will monitor you to verify that your invisible braces are functioning properly.

The Invisalign® trays are made in a series. Each pair of aligners is slightly different from the one before it, and the difference progressively shifts your teeth into better-aligned positions. When you’re finished with your series, you’ll have a dazzling new smile to show off! However, during the treatment, your friends will hardly notice due to them being clear and fit so well on your teeth.

Will they hurt? It is a very gradual shift that causes very little discomfort but will move your teeth into their new positions for that amazing smile. When you finish your final set of aligners, your new smile will be complete – and you’ll be able to enjoy it for the rest of your life.

Advances in dental technology have enabled Invisalign® therapy to perform nearly all of the functions of traditional braces.  Ask your dentist if Invisalign® is right for you.

Braces vs. Invisalign®

Metal braces can be replaced with invisible braces. Invisalign® braces are offered as an orthodontic treatment because dentists understand how frustrating brackets and wires can be for patients. Among the many advantages of Invisalign® transparent aligners are the following:

There is no need for any specialized cleaning equipment. Metal braces necessitate the use of specialized cleaning equipment that allows you to maneuver floss around the wires. Getting food out of the brackets might be a chore all its own. Invisalign® aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual.

More comfortable. Brackets and wires frequently brush against the inside of the mouth, causing ulcers and pain throughout the mouth. The clear aligners used by Invisalign® are comprised of a smooth material that fits snugly around your teeth and doesn’t have all these metal hangups you find with the traditional braces.

Hardly noticeable. The translucent material conceals your treatment. The entire world does not need to know you have braces. You may relax knowing that no one is staring at your mouth. Reduction in treatment time. Invisalign® therapy can take up to a year in many circumstances. Acceleration orthodontics can be completed in even less time.

Find out if Invisalign® is Right for You

Invisalign® is a good option for the majority of patients who require orthodontic treatment. Most orthodontic problems, such as crowded teeth, misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, or gapped teeth can be treated with Invisalign®. The only situations that cannot be addressed with Invisalign® are those that are really severe.
