Discreet & Convenient Orthodontic Treatment

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a unique orthodontic treatment because it utilizes clear, custom-shaped aligners made from an FDA-approved plastic material. Every two weeks, you’ll graduate to your next series of aligners that put a slightly different amount of pressure on your teeth to help them shift into their ideal positions. Throughout the treatment, you’ll also visit our dental office every six to eight weeks to pick up the next series of trays in your treatment and for a quick checkup to make sure that you’re on track with your timeline.

Issues Invisalign Can Fix

Invisalign can address mild to moderate cases of the most common orthodontic issues, such as overcrowded teeth, gapped teeth, and bite alignment issues. Most patients are good candidates for Invisalign, but severe orthodontic problems are still best treated by traditional braces. During your initial consultation, we’ll perform a thorough exam to see if Invisalign is the best choice to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.

Additionally, there are a few other key factors you’ll need to have in order to be a good candidate for Invisalign, including:

  • You must be willing to follow your custom treatment plan.
    You’ll need to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day and take care of them properly to ensure you stay on track. If you don’t, you could end up adding more time and expense to your treatment!
  • You must be in good oral health.
    Problems like tooth decay and gum disease can interfere with orthodontic treatment and damage your teeth. If we discover any indications or oral health issues, we’ll work with you to get them resolved so you can qualify for Invisalign.

Once we’ve made sure that Invisalign is a good choice for you, we’ll plan out your treatment based on which orthodontic issues are present.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Some advantages of choosing Invisalign as your orthodontic treatment include:

  • Discreet look that makes it not obvious that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
  • Easier to maintain good oral health throughout your treatment because you don’t have to brush and floss between brackets and wires.
  • Eat all of your favorite foods, just remove your aligners beforehand.

Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
