What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of invisible aligners that are custom fabricated just for you using 3D computer-aided design and manufacturing technology. With Invisalign, you can view 3D images of how your teeth will move before starting treatment so you can see how your new smile will look when your treatment is complete.
Clear aligners can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or playing a sport or instrument. With Invisalign you’ll have better oral hygiene and the freedom to eat whatever you want. The aligners are smooth and often considered more comfortable than traditional braces. Typically, your orthodontist appointments are shorter because there are no wires to adjust. And appointments are scheduled at 12-15 week intervals instead of the 4-6 week intervals that are necessary with braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Each set of upper and lower clear aligners has a small number of built-in tooth movers. The aligners are ideally worn 20 hours a day, or as close to 20 hours as one’s lifestyle permits. Each aligner set is worn for approximately 1-2 weeks before progressing to the next set. As you move through the series of aligners, you will notice your teeth straightening little by little until the desired straightening is complete.
The number of aligners and the length of treatment needed varies for each patient depending on the severity of the problem and the desired final result. Total treatment time can be shorter than traditional braces or similar depending on the tooth movements needed.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are many benefits of Invisalign compared to traditional braces, including:
- Removability for eating, brushing, sports, and playing an instrument. You can easily remove Invisalign aligners before eating, brushing your teeth, participating in sports, and playing an instrument.
- Appearance. Invisalign aligners are clear and barely noticeable.
- Fewer and shorter office visits. You don’t need to visit the orthodontist as frequently as with traditional braces since there aren’t any wires to repair or adjust.
- Comfort. Patients find Invisalign to be much more comfortable than traditional braces. There is typically some tightness and tenderness at the start of each new aligner set, but this initial feeling of tightness eases with each day.
