What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative treatment to traditional metal braces. It consists of removable aligners made of thin, clear plastic that fit over your teeth to move them gradually to their ideal position. The plastic trays are custom-made, invisible, and highly comfortable.
Invisalign aligners come as a series of sets, and you wear each set for two weeks before moving on to the next until your treatment is complete. To see results, you'll need to wear the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day. You can easily remove them when eating or cleaning your teeth, which makes hygiene during your treatment simple.
What Can Invisalign Correct?
Our dentists can effectively address a wide range of mild to moderate bite problems with Invisalign. Common dental issues we can solve with Invisalign aligners include:
- Crooked teeth
- Unwanted spaces between teeth
- Crowded teeth
If you struggle with any of these issues, our team can help. Our dentist will evaluate your bite and jaw structure before recommending the right treatment for you.
Our Invisalign Treatment Process
We offer Invisalign clear aligners to responsible teens and adults who can follow the treatment requirements. When you visit our practice, our team will first evaluate your condition and qualify you for the treatment to ensure it is the right solution for you. After establishing your eligibility, our team will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign lab to create your custom aligners. You will then come and fit the aligners when ready, and our dentist will make any necessary adjustments.
You will also get all the information you need about your treatment, including instructions on using the aligners for the best result. If you have any questions, our friendly team is always ready and available to address them. Once you begin your treatment, you will come in for monitoring and assessment after 4-6 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected. The typical treatment length for most people takes between 6-18 months.
Retainers to Maintain Your Smile
Once your treatment is complete, your teeth will need some time to stabilize in their new position. To help you maintain the results of your new smile, we provide Vivera® retainers after your Invisalign treatment. We can also create custom retainers for you if needed.
Retainers function by keeping your teeth in place, so they don't shift to their previous positions. The first 3-6 months will require you to wear your Vivera retainers for at least 22 hours a day. As time passes and your bite becomes more stable, our dentists will instruct you on reducing your wear time to overnight or even every few nights depending on your needs.
Benefits of Invisalign Aligners
Choosing Invisalign aligners comes with several benefits. Besides enhancing your dental situation and restoring your smile, you can enjoy advantages such as:
Comfort: Invisalign aligners are designed to fit your teeth perfectly. They lack wires and metal brackets, eliminating gum irritation and injury risk.
Aesthetics: One thing patients love about Invisalign is that the clear aligners are barely noticeable. The treatment allows you to correct your dental issues discreetly without affecting your smile's aesthetics.
Efficiency: Whether you struggle with tooth gaps or crowding, Invisalign effectively delivers a straighter smile. Many patients find they enjoy a short treatment time when they follow instructions as required.
Convenience: With Invisalign removable aligners, you can continue eating your favorite meals and cleaning your teeth normally. Instead avoiding crunchy or sticky foods, remove the aligners when eating or brushing your teeth, and you can easily put them back on once you finish.
Fewer dentist visits: With Invisalign treatment, you only have to visit the dentist once every six weeks for monitoring since you can progress your treatment at home.
