What is Invisalign?
Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded, removable aligners. Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Because now there is breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires
Why would I want Invisalign?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable and there is no metal to cause mouth abrasions. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete
How does Invisalign work?
By using a series of clear removable aligners, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. You simply change them out every 2 weeks. Your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have moved to the final position your dentist has prescribed.
With Invisalign, there is less treatment time
The average length of treatment time for Invisalign is 12 months, from start to finish, depending on the complexity of your case. It will require regular appointments every six to eight weeks to check your progression and change out your trays. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time and the number of aligners will vary from case to case.
Invisible is comfortable
Invisalign is an invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell.
