Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to move teeth into better positions gradually. Invisalign consists of a series of custom-created, clear aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and moves your teeth incrementally. You receive a new set of aligners every two weeks.
Invisalign can be used to correct minor dental issues. They can fix gaps between teeth, crookedness, and bite issues.
An Eye-catching Smile
Invisalign treatment at our practice features clear aligners so that patients can smile confidently throughout treatment. The aligners are removable, so there is no need to worry about feeling uncomfortable. Additionally, Invisalign treatment typically takes a shorter amount of time than other types of treatment.
Removable Aligner Trays
Invisalign aligner trays are removable. Patients can remove them to eat and brush and floss their teeth. However, they shouldn’t remove the trays too often. Aligning teeth with Invisalign requires patients to wear their trays for at least 22 hours a day and only take them out to eat, brush, and floss.
Better Oral Hygiene
With Invisalign, patients don’t have to worry about food particles getting stuck in the aligners, which can get trapped and cause discomfort and tooth decay. With a normal oral hygiene routine, you can take good care of your teeth and gums.
No Food Restrictions
Patients who wear Invisalign aligners don’t have to worry about eating certain foods. Instead, they can eat anything they want, as long as they don’t want to chew gum. Chewing gum can get stuck between the teeth and cause the aligners to shift out of place.
Faster Treatment Times
With traditional braces, patients often have to visit their dentist for frequent checkups. During each visit, their dentist can check in on the progress of their treatment and make any necessary adjustments. Invisalign eliminates these visits, allowing patients to enjoy the benefits of a faster treatment time.
Each set of aligners is custom-made of BPA-free plastic and is shaped to fit your mouth. These aligners won’t irritate your cheeks and gums as metal braces can. This treatment works by applying gentle pressure to your teeth, which moves them into place. Since the aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible, and most people won’t notice you’re wearing aligners.
