Invisalign is an alternative treatment method to traditional metal braces. The treatment involves wearing a series of virtually invisible, clear aligners that continuously adjust the positioning of the teeth over time.
Many people want to straighten their teeth and improve the look of their smile, but few want to deal with the inconveniences that come with traditional orthodontic treatments. That is why Invisalign clear aligners are such a great option.
The Invisalign process starts with a fast, precise digital scan. Then we will map out a custom treatment plan. You'll even get to preview your new smile. Your aligners will then be custom made for you in the largest, most advanced mass customization process that exists in the world. Invisalign clear aligners work so well because they are built using software algorithms that determine the optimal way to move teeth.
Once you receive your aligners, you will need to wear them for a minimum of 20-22 hours per day in order to achieve the desired results. Approximately every two weeks, you will swap out the aligner for a new one, and your teeth will begin to move into proper position. Once the desired results have been achieved, you will wear a retainer to maintain the new positioning.
Invisalign can be used to help patients in the following ways:
There are many advantages that Invisalign offers over traditional orthodontic treatments. Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat and drink, so there are no food limitations. This also means that you will not need to make any changes or adjustments to normal oral care practices. Best of all, the clear nature of Invisalign aligners makes them almost invisible. Athletes also often use Invisalign, since they do not feature the same injury risks as braces.
