What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that relies on clear aligners to straighten your smile. Invisalign clear aligners are made using advanced, 3D computer imaging technology, and are specifically designed to be both comfortable and effective in correcting your orthodontic problems. Because they do not involve the use of any metal brackets or wires, the require less time in our dentist’s office for adjustments, and allow you to eat, brush and floss with ease. With Invisalign, you can enjoy a natural-looking smile throughout your entire orthodontic treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works through a series of clear aligners. Each set of aligners makes small adjustments to the position of your teeth. You will switch to a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your teeth have achieved their final positions, and will meet regularly with our dentist to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Remember, your treatment will be more effective the more often you wear your aligners. We recommend that you only remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss.
Total treatment time with Invisalign lasts nine to 15 months on average, and typically involves the use of 18-30 sets of aligners.
Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?
Absolutely! Invisalign is designed to provide you with a treatment that is both effective and comfortable. With Invisalign, you can reap the benefits of a treatment that is virtually invisible, allowing you enjoy a natural smile even while correcting the alignment of your teeth. You can also eat what you like, and your aligners are removable so that you can maintain good oral hygiene with ease. Invisalign is also a very flexible treatment, and with faster appointments at convenient times for your schedule.
