What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses nearly invisible aligners, that are both removable and comfortable, to gently straighten your teeth over time. These aligners allow you to smile with pride both during and after treatment. Invisalign aligners are designed and made with 3D computer imaging technology specifically for your smile.
Why Would I Want Invisalign?
As mentioned above, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. They are also removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you like during treatment. You can also brush and floss your teeth as normal. Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners usually do not require as many adjustment appointments. In addition, with Invisalign treatment, you can view your virtual treatment plan so that you can see how your smile will look when treatment is complete.
How Does it Work?
Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks. Remove them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you progress through each set of aligners, your teeth will slowly and gently straighten, until they have reached their ideal positions. Visit our office about once every six weeks so that our orthodontist can monitor your treatment and make sure that everything is progressing as it should. Average Invisalign treatment time averages from about nine to 15 months. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30.
