What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative solution for bite problems and dental misalignment. It is an alternative to traditional braces that consists of a series of clear removable custom trays. The aligners exert precise pressure on teeth to move them gradually into their ideal position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners do not include wires and brackets.

The trays are made of thin, transparent plastic, which makes them virtually unnoticeable. You'll wear each set for two weeks before moving to the next in the series until you complete your treatment. For the aligners to function optimally and provide satisfactory results, you must wear them for at least 22 hours daily, and should only remove the aligners when eating or cleaning your teeth.

Issue You Can Fix with Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligners are effective for mild to moderate bite problems. Our team will assess your dental situation and recommend the best treatment to straighten your smile. You can get Invisalign treatment to correct alignment issues like:

  • Unwanted spaces between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Dental crowding
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

Successful treatment requires a commitment to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours daily. As such, we only recommend the treatment to teens and adults 18 or older, who are in a better position to follow the requirements and achieve their desired results.

Our Invisalign Treatment Process

When you visit our practice, we begin your Invisalign process with a thorough assessment of your oral situation. Doing so allows us to understand your needs and plan your treatment accordingly. Once we determine that you are a great candidate for Invisalign, we take accurate impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab to create your custom aligners.

Once your first series of trays arrive, our dentist will provide instructions on wearing and taking care of your aligners and what to expect during and after your treatment. If you have any concerns or questions concerning your treatment, our friendly team is always happy to address them.

After every 4-6 weeks, you will come in for monitoring to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected. We also offer free teeth whitening gel after your treatment so you can enjoy a brighter and more confident smile.

Advantages of Invisalign Clear Aligners

The comfort, convenience, and effectiveness of Invisalign aligners make them an attractive orthodontic treatment for most patients. Some of the benefits you can expect when you choose Invisalign are:

Comfort: Invisalign custom aligners are designed to fit your teeth perfectly. They are highly comfortable, and you don't have to worry about wires and brackets injuring your mouth or irritating your gums.

Aesthetics: One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is that it preserves your smile's aesthetic. Since the trays are made of clear, thin plastic, the aligners are unnoticeable and do not affect your smile's appearance. It is also an excellent option for adults who dislike the idea of wearing braces, as the aligners allow you to correct your dental situation discreetly.

Fewer Dentist Visits: Getting Invisalign aligners is highly convenient as it doesn't need as many dentist visits. Most of the time, you only need to see the dentist once every 4-6 weeks for monitoring.

Removable Convenience: You can remove the aligners when eating and cleaning your teeth and put them back on once you are done. This means no dietary restrictions or major changes in your oral hygiene routine.

Efficiency: Invisalign aligners are highly effective and efficient in treating a wide range of bite problems. Depending on the severity of your condition, you might be able to achieve your smile goals in as little as six months. Most patients complete their treatment and see satisfactory results after 12-18 months.
