What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an advanced system for correcting tooth alignment. The system consists of a graduated series of medical-grade clear plastic aligners that gently move teeth into optimal positions. The patient generally changes their aligners every one to two weeks per the dentist's instructions. Over time, the benefits become apparent.
The Invisalign Process
Getting Invisalign is a simple process. First, you will visit your dentist for a consultation. You will discuss whether the treatment will work for you and what you expect from the results.
To create the aligners, the dentist scans your teeth with the iTero intraoral scanner. The scanner creates highly detailed 3-D maps of your mouth. The dentist uses this digital data to design your aligners.
After the aligners come back from the Invisalign lab, your dentist will assign you to wear each one for one to two weeks and then move to the next. You will need to visit the dentist approximately every six weeks to check your progress. In as little as 12 months, you will have a beautifully aligned smile.
Benefits of Invisalign®
When you use Invisalign, you can keep your treatment private. Your aligners will be unnoticeable unless you point them out. You will not experience the unwanted attention that braces sometimes attract.
The aligners are smooth and do not have wires or sharp edges that irritate delicate oral tissues.
Faster than Braces
While Invisalign can work in as little as 12 months, braces frequently take up to three years. Invisalign is ideal for patients who want to see quick results.
It's easier to care for your teeth with Invisalign than with braces. Invisalign trays come out for cleaning, meaning you can reach every tooth surface by brushing and flossing. You can clean your aligners with the branded solution or clear liquid soap. Do not use abrasive toothpaste.
Eat What You Like
With Invisalign, you won't have a long list of food restrictions. You will take your aligners out to eat and drink to have whatever you like. Ensure that you brush your teeth and clean your aligners after each meal.
Improve Your Self-Confidence
People who feel uncomfortable with their teeth often feel awkward in social situations. Perfecting your smile will give you a boost in self-esteem.
