While traditional orthodontics relies on metal braces to straighten your smile, Invisalign® treatment relies on a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are nearly invisible, and allow you to maintain a completely natural look while also receiving treatment to improve the position and appearance of your teeth. Invisalign is typically recommended to treat all the same issues as braces, including:
- Bad bites (overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, etc.)
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
Your Invisalign aligners are made using advanced computer technology. This ensures that they fit your mouth perfectly and are comfortable to wear. Each set of aligners makes minor changes to the position of your teeth, and as you switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks your teeth will gradually and gently move into their correct positions. You will need to meet with our dentist regularly while receiving Invisalign treatment to ensure that your everything is progressing as planned.
If you receive Invisalign treatment, you will need to wear your aligners as often as possible. The best results come from wearing your aligners 20-22 hours each day, removing them only to eat, brush and floss. You will be able to maintain a normal diet throughout your treatment, as the removable aligners mean that you can easily keep your teeth clean.
We also recommend that you clean your aligners frequently. If not cleaned regularly, your aligners may cause your teeth to appear dirty, gray or stained.
