Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign® clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces. By using a system of clear, removable trays, teeth are straightened gently without interruption to your lifestyle. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and designed to move teeth gradually into their proper position.
Using Invisalign clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if Invisalign clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.
How do Invisalign clear aligners work?
Invisalign clear aligners, like braces, use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets.
The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses, you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and you'll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case. Treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years.
Advantages of orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners:
Invisalign clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces. They also work for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners.
- Invisalign clear aligners are easy to keep clean, making it easy to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
- Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable and unlikely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
- Invisalign clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
- Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so it's easy to brush and floss after meals.
