What is Invisalign (Clear Braces)?
Invisalign consists of a series of removable clear aligners/trays that straighten your teeth over time.
What are some advantages?
Clear, comfortable, and removable are some of the biggest advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces. The aligners are clear so you do not have to worry about having to live with metal brackets and wires while you are straightening your teeth. Secondly, the aligners are more comfortable than traditional metal braces because the metal can cause trauma to your cheeks and gums during treatment. Finally, they are also removable which helps with eating, drinking and brushing/flossing.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works by first scheduling a consult to have the Doctor complete a detailed evaluation to determine whether or not you would be a candidate for Invisalign. Then, your records would be sent to Invisalign to have a 3D rendering of your teeth created. Your Doctor will use your 3D model to virtually align your teeth and Invisalign will use this prescription to create your aligners.
Once you have your aligners, you will wear each set of aligners for ~2 weeks non-stop except to remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss. Each aligner will move your teeth a little, but over the course of the treatment each little amount builds on the previous one to achieve the desired results. You will visit the office every 4-6 weeks to confirm that your treatment is on track. Total treatment time varies from patient to patient, but a typical case average 12-15 months.
