What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign by Align Technology is an orthodontic treatment option that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth and perfect your smile. It continues to grow in popularity as an alternative to traditional braces because it is much more discreet, comfortable, and convenient.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your initial consultation, our experienced team will evaluate your unique needs and take images and impressions of your teeth. You will get to visualize what Invisalign can do for your smile. The next step is creating a custom treatment plan outlining the precise tooth movements and the expected length of treatment.

Our team will send the impressions of your teeth along with your custom treatment plan to an Invisalign laboratory for fabrication. When your aligners are ready, we will show you how to use them and care for them. You’ll need to wear your virtually invisible braces for 20 to 22 hours each day, only taking them out during meals or when you brush and floss your teeth.

About every two weeks, you’ll switch your aligners for the next set in the series, following your custom treatment plan. You’ll see your teeth slowly moving into a straighter, more aligned position. You’ll visit us periodically during treatment to ensure your progress stays on track. Once your teeth are in the desired position, you’ll switch to retainers to ensure your teeth don’t move back out of alignment.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is ideal for patients wanting to straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional braces. Here’s a look at some of the many benefits of Invisalign:

  • Practically Invisible: Invisalign’s clear aligner trays are made from a transparent material that’s virtually unnoticeable. Imagine aligning your teeth and perfecting your smile without metal braces interfering with your appearance!
  • Convenient: Your Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat anything you want, unlike braces with their list of restricted foods. If you have an important event, just remove your aligners and pop them back in when done!
  • Comfortable: The clear plastic aligners are made from a smooth and comfortable material. There are no sharp edges or wires as with braces, and the trays are custom-made for the best fit and enhanced comfort.
  • Faster: Invisalign can straighten your smile up to 50% faster than traditional braces. You’ll be on your way to the smile of your dreams before you know it.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene: You can remove your Invisalign trays to brush and floss as usual. The aligners themselves are easy to clean, so you can maintain a clean and healthy mouth as you align your smile.
  • Effective: Invisalign addresses a range of orthodontic concerns, including crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. It can also correct mild to moderate problems with the bite, including overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites.
  • Predictable: Invisalign’s SmartTrack material and SmartForce features apply pressure where needed, shifting your teeth into alignment with incredible precision. The cutting-edge orthodontic solution delivers real, long-lasting results.
