Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign’s advanced approach to orthodontic treatment means that it won’t interfere with your daily life. The benefits include:
- Nearly invisible
- Removable for pictures or special meetings
- No diet restrictions
- No special cleaning instructions
- Comfortable–no metal wires or brackets
- Comparable treatment time to traditional braces
These benefits are responsible for Invisalign’s increasing popularity.
How Invisalign Works
It works by the same basic method that traditional braces do: constant pressure that encourages your teeth to move into their desired positions. But instead of metal wires and brackets that pull your teeth into place, it uses clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that gently push your teeth into place.
At your first appointment, we take a digital impression of your teeth. This is then used to plan a precise sequence of tooth movements that will achieve your straight, attractive smile. Then a sequence of aligners is manufactured for you. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and then switch to a new one.
Because Invisalign uses the same basic principles of tooth movement, it can correct most of the same problems as traditional braces, including:
- Crowded Teeth
- Gapped teeth
It is available for both teens and adults. It is also available in a special Invisalign Express treatment for quick correction of minor concerns.
