The Clear Choice
Do you dream of straighter teeth but aren’t willing to wear metal braces? Would you like a discreet and effective way to improve your smile? You no longer have to compromise! You can achieve the smile of your dreams without any noticeable signs of treatment with Invisalign clear aligners.
What Is Invisalign?
Patients with crooked or crowded teeth, gaps between teeth and misaligned bites have chosen Invisalign clear aligners to treat those dental issues. Invisalign uses a series of clear trays that gradually shift teeth into a straighter or better aligned position.
To make your custom fit aligners, the dentist will first make an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to a lab where your clear aligners are fabricated. Each aligner is worn for two weeks, with each tray manufactured to gradually adjust your teeth.
Invisalign can be just as effective as metal braces. While the appearance of the clear aligner is a distinct advantage of Invisalign, other benefits of the treatment include:
- Aligners are easily removable for eating and drinking. No need to avoid certain foods.
- They allow you to brush and floss as usual. Unlike with metal braces, getting in between teeth to clean isn’t an issue.
- Aligners are trimmed so they fit comfortably and don’t bother your gums. They also won’t cut the inside of your mouth the way metal braces can.
How Long Will I Wear Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Each patient is different, but typically the Invisalign treatment lasts 12–18 months. It’s important to wear the aligners 20–22 hours per day, only taking them off for eating, brushing and flossing. Otherwise, your treatment could be extended. The aligners should also be cleaned gently with your toothbrush to avoid any damage.
