Invisalign: An Excellent Alignment Option

What Is Invisalign

Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It basically looks like a clear plastic retainer and offers effective results.  The best part is that you can remove it anytime you want.  You can easily take it off when you want to eat, brush, floss or go somewhere. Our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results in just about six weeks, but the duration can vary depending on how much your teeth need to move.

How Does Invisalign Work

Invisalign is basically a treatment involving a series of plastic shells that tightly fit around your teeth. It is clear and transparent and customized for your unique dental structure.

Once you have decided to use Invisalign, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth, followed by the creation of a customized treatment plan. Once you approve the plan, we will provide you with a series of aligners. Our staff will place the first aligner firmly on your teeth and instruct you on how to properly care for them.

You will have to most likely change your aligners every few weeks.  This frequency ensures that by the end of your treatment plan, you achieve a perfectly straight and healthy smile.

Facts About Invisalign

Here are some of the benefits of Invisalign:

Prompt Results

While braces typically take 2 years to adjust your smile, Invisalign usually takes 6-18 months, depending on the patient’s teeth structure. 

Convenience

Invisalign is a perfect alternative to braces if you are always on the move. It enables you to stick to your busy schedule as it requires visits only every four to six weeks to our dentist.

Virtually Invisible

Invisalign aligners are transparent and hardly noticeable.  So, while using Invisalign, you can stick to your treatment as well as look great throughout the day.  

Easy Maintenance

Invisalign is also better for your oral health maintenance because it allows you to easily brush and floss every angle of your teeth.

No Brackets or Wires

Invisalign will make your life easier by eliminating the need to be worried about broken wires or brackets.
