Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. It's a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile confidently both during and after treatment. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth toward the smile you've always wanted. Almost no one will know you're wearing them unless you tell them. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Also, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little and week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Importance of Straighter Teeth to your health:
Decreased Risk of Abnormal Wear
Properly aligned teeth can be less stressful on the supporting bone jaw joints.
Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked, or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums fit more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
With maintenance of good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, or periodontal (gum) disease can be reduced greatly.
