How Does Invisalign Work?

In brief, Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear aligners. It is designed to gradually shift teeth into their perfect position. Likewise, clear aligners offer patients a more discreet way to align their teeth. This advantage is great for patients concerned about the metal appearance of regular braces.

Invisalign is best for patients with mild to moderately misaligned teeth. This includes underbites, overbites, open bites, crossbites, and crowded teeth. 

If Invisalign is recommended for your smile, the dentist will generate digital images of your mouth structure. These images are sent to Invisalign for the technicians to make your customized aligners.

Generally, you must wear your aligners at least 23 hours a day and change your set every 2 weeks. You will also need to see your dentist throughout your treatment to assure your teeth are shifting correctly. It is important to note that the aligners must be removed when eating. You will also need to brush your teeth before reinserting your aligners. This prevents bacterial growth and bad breath. 

When Should I Expect Results?

Results vary as each case requires a customized treatment plan. Nonetheless, many patients obtain their perfect smile in 6 to 18 months. Patients will need to wear a retainer at night to prevent the teeth from reverting.

Why Should I Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is great for teenagers and adults. In fact, many adults consider Invisalign to maintain a more professional appearance for their career. Teenagers often choose Invisalign because they prefer the discreet appearance rather than metal wires.

In addition, Invisalign is a great choice because it is effective! The company has been offering clear aligners since the late 90s. They have helped straighten 8 million smiles according to their website. Also, with the clear aligners, you can eat normal foods. Unlike braces, your treatment does not restrict your dietary choice. Simply remove your aligners and enjoy your meal!

Lastly, did you know that straighter teeth promote good oral health? That’s because straighter teeth allow you to effectively brush and floss plaque and tartar build-up. Doing so prevents decay, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. Overall, Invisalign is an effective and modern way to straighten your teeth for a healthier smile.
