What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment that gradually aligns and straightens your teeth with clear, removable aligners. It is a clear aligner system that is administered and supervised by a qualified dentist or orthodontist from start to finish. Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of dental concerns, including crowding, crookedness, and spacing between teeth.
Invisalign aligners are constructed using FDA-approved, TRD-rated plastic to suit each patient. Treatment with the aligners is often as efficient as treatment with traditional braces, and they are easier to keep clean and better for oral routines. The trays are removable to prevent patients from feeling restricted to their diet during treatment, and there is a special tray to allow regular brushing and flossing.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
Invisalign is made with clear, medical-grade plastic that is custom-made for each patient. The aligners are only removable when you are eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults and teens who want to improve their smile without the appearance of metal braces.
Comfort: Clear aligners are designed to fit snugly against your teeth and don’t cause the same cuts or discomfort that braces can. Although you may experience some discomfort as your teeth begin to shift into position, Invisalign largely spared your mouth from pain.
Ease of Brushing and Flossing: Clear aligners allow users to remove the mouthpiece and brush and floss normally, without the need for a lengthy and challenging dental care process as with traditional braces.
No Danger With Hard or Chewy Foods: People who wear braces should avoid hard and chewy foods, including nuts, popcorn, and bagels, to prevent damage or irritation. However, people with aligners can remove them before eating, so they don’t need to avoid these foods.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses pressure and force to gradually shift teeth into the correct alignment and position. Some patients may also need bone-colored attachments that bond to the teeth, to help the aligners work more effectively.
To begin your Invisalign treatment, please request an evaluation with a certified provider. During the initial consultation, the dentist will take x-rays to assess your oral health and determine your eligibility for treatment.
After your Dr. Hank examines your situation and approves it, they will develop a treatment plan, take impressions of your teeth, and order a set of custom aligner. Aligners are made gradually by your doctor over time. Treatment length lasts for 12 to 18 months on average, and patients are required to wear aligner trays a minimum of 22 hours per day for optimal results.
Eager to make a great first impression, patients often request teeth whitening once they receive Invisalign trays. One dentist can provide a low-odor whitening gel to place in the trays at night. Patients may also buy effective, over-the-counter whitening products from various companies.
What Is Invisalign Made From?
Invisalign clear aligners are made from a BPA-free, durable plastic. They are much more comfortable than traditional metal braces, which can rub and damage teeth as they move together. These plastic trays are customized to fit your teeth and aligned by you step by step using a series of regular professional check-ups on the way until your desired goal is achieved. Before deciding to try Invisalign, we’ll take some time with you to discuss your smile goals as well as what you can expect with the process of aligning your teeth along the way.
