Invisalign is a series of clear aligners designed to correct common orthodontic issues. While Invisalign is convenient, the treatment itself is not. You’ll need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day to achieve your desired results. Invisalign can correct issues like crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, gapped teeth, and crowding.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers clear advantages over traditional metal braces. While braces tend to stand out and draw unwanted attention to your smile, Invisalign aligners can fit easily into your lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic and are completely clear, making them virtually invisible. No one will even know you’re straightening your teeth!

Invisalign aligners are also removable. This means you can take them out for special events, and brush and floss your teeth normally. You can also eat and drink whatever you want during treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

With Invisalign, your clear aligners are completely removable. You switch out your aligners every two weeks and, with each new aligner, your teeth will gradually move into their ideal positions.

Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you using an impression or 3D scan of your teeth. As a result, they are a comfortable, discreet, and convenient way to straighten your teeth.

Is Invisalign the Right Treatment for Me?

Invisalign works well for many cases, but it is not the right treatment for every case. Invisalign works best with mild to moderate crowding and spacing issues.

Invisalign is also ideal for minor tooth rotations and orthodontic relapse. If your case doesn’t fall under these guidelines, you may still be eligible for Invisalign.

The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to talk to your dentist. They will be able to evaluate your case and let you know if Invisalign is right for you.

The time it takes to complete your Invisalign treatment depends on the severity of your case, but the average case takes about one year. Once you’ve finished wearing your aligners, you will begin with retainers. These retainers will keep your teeth in their final positions.
