Everything About Invisalign Aligners

Everything About Invisalign Aligners

Do you have crooked, misaligned teeth and are looking for a way to fix them discreetly and faster? Invisalign clear aligners can be your life saver. Invisalign aligners made from smooth BPA-free plastic allow patients to align their teeth comfortably and discreetly, most often faster than dental braces. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses a set of clear plastic aligners to gradually reposition teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. Patients wear each aligner for about two weeks at a time before switching to the next aligner.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks to gradually shift your teeth into place. These aligners are clear and practically invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. The aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush and floss, and for special occasions.

Invisalign treatment process

Your dentist will first examine your teeth and develop a treatment plan. A digital scan of your teeth will be taken and used to create your treatment plan. Then, an Invisalign lab will create a series of aligners for you to wear. You change to a new set of aligners every few weeks.

Benefits of Invisalign aligners

Invisalign offers several clear advantages when compared to traditional braces. They include the following:

  • Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually invisible.

Invisalign aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and are invisible when worn. 

  • Invisalign’s clear aligners are removable.

Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed for eating, drinking, and for daily oral hygiene. Traditional braces require special tools such as floss threaders, interproximal brushes, and proxy brushes to clean around the brackets and wires. Invisalign patients can use their toothbrushes and floss to maintain healthy gums and teeth.

  • Invisalign’s clear aligners are comfortable.

Invisalign aligners offer patients a comfortable alternative to wearing braces. Invisalign patients can brush and floss their teeth as usual, with no food restrictions, due to the removable nature of their aligners.

  • Invisalign’s clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth.

The Invisalign aligners are custom-made from smooth, comfortable plastic. They’re designed to fit snugly over your teeth, gently moving them into place. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place.

  • Invisalign’s clear aligners are convenient.

Invisalign’s clear aligners are removable, which means you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good hygiene. There are no wires or metal brackets to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you don’t have to wait to see the end result.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign is a popular choice among patients who want to straighten their teeth discreetly. Invisalign is often preferred over metal braces because it can straighten teeth without drawing attention to the smile. If you suffer from any of the following issues, Invisalign can benefit you:I

  • Crooked teeth.
  • Small gaps between teeth.
  • Normal overbites and underbites.
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth

How long is the treatment?

Invisalign treatment usually takes 12 to 18 months to complete. However, this time frame is variable, and it depends on how quickly your teeth move to their new positions.
