Invisalign is a clear aligner system that is used to straighten teeth and improve the appearance of the smile. It consists of a series of custom-molded, removable clear aligners that are almost invisible and very comfortable to wear. The Invisalign system is effective for both teens and adults and typically takes less than a year to produce significant results.
The Invisalign process begins with getting digital scans of the teeth taken in our office. Using these scans, a series of custom clear aligners will be fabricated for the patient to wear over the course of treatment. The aligners are usually changed every seven to ten days as the teeth begin to shift and settle into place. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing patients to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally. Scheduled checkups will be required during treatment, and a final retainer will be worn to keep the teeth in their corrected positions.
Invisalign is a convenient and comfortable treatment option that fits any lifestyle. The aligners are virtually invisible and do not interfere with daily activities or social events. They do not have the metal wires or bands that can irritate the mouth like traditional braces do, and many people will not even notice that the aligners are being worn.
Invisalign is often the perfect solution for treating and correcting a variety of dental problems in teenagers and adults. It can be used for minor adjustments and can also help with more extensive issues such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites. If you want to straighten your teeth effectively but do not like the appearance of traditional braces, Invisalign may be a good option for you.
