Invisalign  101

No, you don’t have to suffer through years of braces and headgear to create a straight, perfect smile. If you want to skip the discomfort of traditional braces, then Invisalign is a great treatment to consider. This orthodontic method uses clear aligners to gently push your teeth into the right alignment.

The benefit is that you can enjoy an improved appearance without the use of metal wires and brackets. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, which means that you can smile with confidence – many people won’t notice when you are wearing the aligners.

Invisalign FAQ

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

This treatment can be used for both adults and teens, giving you a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Technological advancements are used to help with the most common bite and alignment issues including both simple cases and complex treatments. If you are wondering if Invisalign is right for you, then the best solution is to schedule a consultation with our team to discuss your goals.

How does Invisalign work?

First, your smile is analyzed so a digital treatment plan can be mapped and customized based on your smile. This process creates a step-by-step method that uses a series of aligners to help you reach the desired dental positioning. Each set of aligners must be worn a week or two before moving onto the next set of aligners, based on the instructions from your dentist.

Can I remove the Invisalign trays?

One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you can remove the trays as needed. No need to skip your favorite foods – simply take the trays out of your mouth to enjoy the meal. Then, the aligners can be replaced when you are done eating. For best results, aligners must be worn for 20 – 22 hours per day, giving you the flexibility to choose when you would like to eat.
