What is Invisalign and how does it work?
Invisalign is a cosmetic alternative to braces to straighten or close gaps between teeth. Invisalign treatment involves a series of clear aligners changed every two weeks or as directed by your provider. Each set of aligners should be worn for 20 -22 hours per day for the best results. As you progress through your series of aligners your teeth are moved into a straighter position in a safe and controlled manner. The average course of treatment is about 1 year, with 6-8-week appointments with your Invisalign dentist to track your progress. Invisalign can be a great treatment choice for adults and teenagers.
Invisalign vs Braces
With both teeth straightening treatment options available, how does one differ from other? Both traditional braces and Invisalign were designed to provide the same end result – to straighten your teeth and improve your oral health. Whereas traditional braces are made from metal or clear polycarbonate brackets and fixed to your teeth, Invisalign aligners are designed to be invisible and are worn over your teeth.
Patients looking for treatment for a wide range of issues including over and underbites, crossbites, gaps in teeth, open bites, crowded teeth or even for patients who want generally straighter teeth, may find Invisalign braces an ideal solution for them.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
Perfect for young adults alike who want to have their teeth straightened but dislike the sight of traditional braces. Invisalign braces are a clear and cosmetic option.
Your aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the ideal position. By moving teeth in a slow, controlled way, orthodontic pain and discomfort are greatly reduced.
Designed as a single piece of clear-plastic there’s no chance of wires breaking, meaning fewer emergency dental visits.
As Invisalign aligners are removable, cleaning, brushing and flossing are not compromised during treatment, which can lead to healthier teeth and gums.
When worn for the recommended 22-24 hours a day, treatment takes between 6-18 months depending on individual circumstances.
Cleaning your aligners is easier than ever, simply brush them under cold water or soak them in denture tablets.
As the aligners are completely removable you can eat the food you like and play the contact sports you love.
