If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, our dentists may recommend straightening them with Invisalign® clear aligners. This orthodontic treatment works to move your teeth into their ideal positions so you can enjoy a smile that is beautiful and balanced as well as healthier.
What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign treatment is a type of orthodontic care used to align your teeth. Invisalign treatment relies on a series of clear plastic aligners rather than a system of metal brackets and wires, making it a more discreet treatment option. Invisalign treatment can correct all the same problems as braces, including:
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Bad bites, such as overbites, open bites, underbites and crossbites
How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?
Invisalign treatment begins with a 3D scan. This scan creates a digital model from which your aligners are designed, as well as providing a simulation for what your final treatment will look like. A series of custom-made, computer-generated aligners is created, which you will wear and switch out every few weeks as directed by our dentists. Each set of aligners will make small changes to the positions of your teeth, gradually and gently moving them into their optimal positions. You will need to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours each day to keep your treatment on track, and will meet with our dentists regularly to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
What Are The Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Invisalign treatment offers many benefits, including:
- A nearly invisible treatment
- Removable aligners, which allow you to eat, brush and floss normally
- A completely customized treatment experience
- No metal brackets or wires are needed
- A more comfortable experience, as the aligners are made from smooth plastic
