Benefits of Invisalign
The Invisalign system is extremely popular — and for good reason! Invisalign patients enjoy benefits such as
- 3D technology, which allows you to see your entire treatment plan before you even start treatment — you can see what your brand new smile will look like!
- Virtually invisible for aesthetic appeal.
- More comfortable than traditional braces — no metal brackets or wires are used with the Invisalign system.
- Being able to eat and drink what you want during treatment — the aligners are completely removable!
How does Invisalign work?
The first step to begin any orthodontic treatment is a comprehensive exam. You or your child will meet with one of our experienced orthodontists, who will discuss all your options for orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign. Invisalign commonly and successfully treats many orthodontic conditions, such as gapped teeth, tooth crowding, and malocclusions including overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.
Invisalign utilizes 3D technology to design your specialized treatment plan. Virtual impressions are taken of your teeth and jaws to create each set of clear aligners you will need throughout your treatment.
The clear aligners work to gently align the teeth by exerting continual but gentle pressure. In general, each set of clear aligners is worn for two weeks at a time and is only removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. This usually means that the aligners must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. A new set of clear aligners will be worn for the following two weeks, and so on, until you have achieved your ideal smile. Most patients complete their treatment after a total of 18–30 sets of aligners over the course of 9–15 months; however, since each Invisalign treatment is customized for every patient, you may find that your specific treatment may vary from these averages.
We will see you every six to eight weeks to ensure you are staying on track during your treatment. Of course, we are always available to our patients if you have any questions or concerns between appointments.
