Invisalign is often an ideal treatment for teenagers and adults who are looking for a discreet alternative to traditional orthodontics. Unlike braces, Invisalign relies on a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is custom-made using specialized computer technology, so they fit your smile perfectly and provide an effective treatment.
Invisalign can be used to treat all the same orthodontic issues as braces, including crowded, crooked, gapped and spaced teeth, as well as malocclusion (overbites, under bites, open bites, crossbites, etc.).
As your treatment progresses, you will switch to a new set of aligners every week or so. Small changes will be made to the alignment of your teeth with each new aligner, gradually and gently moving your teeth into their correct positions. You will meet with our dentist regularly throughout your treatment to ensure that it progresses as planned.
Because your aligners are made from clear plastic, they can become dirty very easily. Please remember to clean them regularly in order to prevent your teeth from appearing stained, gray or dirty.
We also recommend that you only remove your aligners to eat or brush your teeth. While the fact that your aligners are removable means that you can eat whatever you like during your treatment and can brush and floss your teeth with ease, your teeth will not move unless you are wearing the aligners regularly. To keep your treatment on track, we recommend that you wear your aligner 20 to 22 hours each day.
