How Invisalign Works
These removable, clear aligners cover your teeth, creating gentle pressure and moving them into alignment. Say goodbye to dealing with mouth sores, uncomfortable adjustments, and messy wax. Because treatment with Invisalign clear braces takes less time than traditional braces, usually only six to 18 months, you will achieve a gorgeous smile in no time at all. Feel free to remove the Invisalign clear braces to eat, brush, or for special occasions.
The way the process works is we will take 3-D images of your mouth so that a quality dental lab can produce your set of custom aligners. You’ll be expected to wear each aligner for two weeks and then move on to the next one. Your dentist will monitor the progress with regular appointments about every three weeks.
Indications for Invisalign
Even the most common orthodontic issues can be addressed with Invisalign. If you experience any of the following, you may find that Invisalign can work for you.
When your teeth are too close together, it can be difficult to floss and clean between your teeth. This can result in bacteria and food becoming trapped, causing tooth decay or gum disease. Invisalign will shift your teeth, creating room and allowing for proper alignment.
Spaces Between Teeth
If you experience the opposite of crowded teeth, too much space, it can be just as problematic in terms of trapped food particles. Tooth decay and cavities can become a reality, but with Invisalign, the clear aligners will work to bring your teeth back together, eliminating the unnecessary space.
Bite problems can create issues with your speech, eating, and chewing abilities. It can even lead to TMJ/TMD disorder or teeth grinding. Whether you have an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite, Invisalign can fix it.
Benefits of Invisalign
Without a doubt, Invisalign is worth the time and money. Not only will you be able to straighten your teeth more discreetly, but you’ll also see a noticeable difference in your smile in less time than it would take with traditional metal braces. Other benefits of Invisalign include:
