What are the advantages of Invisalign?

  • Clear Aligners – Invisalign is the closest thing to invisible! Straighten your teeth without bringing extra attention to your teeth during the process.
  • Minimal Upkeep – With Invisalign you can remove the Invisalign trays during meals and when you brush your teeth. Invisalign allows you to be able to thoroughly floss and brush to keep your smile bright.
  • More Time for You – With Invisalign, you don’t have to visit the dentist as frequently for cleanings as you would with traditional braces. You also don’t have to go through the discomfort of having your braces adjusted and tightened every few weeks.

How does Invisalign work?

At your initial Invisalign appointment, your dentist will assess your teeth and a plan will be made for the straightening process. Digital impressions will be taken of your teeth so the clear aligners can be created. Your doctor will show you the goal for your teeth and the result of what your smile will look like after completing the Invisalign treatment. Several aligners will be made for your teeth and you will switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks as treatment goes on. The aligners will slowly and steadily work to straighten your smile. You will most likely visit the doctor every 6-8 weeks to ensure the straightening process is progressing smoothly. Most patients can finish the straightening process in about one year. After your teeth are aligned and you have achieved a beautifully straight smile, your doctor may give you a retainer to use to keep your teeth from shifting.
