Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, computer-generated trays to shift teeth into their proper position. These trays – often called aligners – are made of a comfortable, thin plastic that is nearly invisible. If you want straighter teeth without the attention or embarrassment of metal braces, Invisalign may be right for you!
There are many benefits to straight teeth. In addition to improving your smile cosmetically, Invisalign will benefit your oral health. Crowded teeth provide more hiding places for bacteria and it’s more difficult to brush and floss around those areas. However, better-positioned teeth make cleaning easier; and that lowers your risk of dental issues, such as cavities. Invisalign is capable of correcting many orthodontic issues like crowding, overlap, spaces or gaps, overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
The aligners’ structure is discreet and removable. They are removed before a meal, so you can consume the foods you would normally eat. They are taken off for easily cleaning, brushing, and flossing. The aligners are worn during the day and while sleeping. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks before moving to the next set in the series. Treatment with Invisalign is completed quicker than with traditional braces. The total treatment time varies depending on case by case. On average patients complete treatment and are enjoying the results within 12 months. The Invisalign method is a way to get a straighter, healthier smile without the discomfort and hassle of brackets and wires.
