Do you dream of a straighter smile, but can’t imagine wearing bulky, metal braces? If so, advances in dental technology have created a great alternative just for you – Invisalign. With the Invisalign system, you can effectively straighten your smile, and no one else has to know.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative dental treatment that can improve the alignment of your teeth without the use of traditional braces. Instead, you’ll wear a set of clear, plastic aligners. Unlike traditional braces that are cemented to your teeth, these trays are removable, and you’ll take them out to eat and drink.
The Invisalign system has a proven track record of success, giving dental hundreds of thousands of dental patients the amazing smiles they have always wanted. These custom-molded aligners can treat a variety of issues, including:
- Widely spaced teeth
- Crowded teeth
How the Invisalign System Works
Following your treatment plan closely will make or break the success of Invisalign on your smile. You’ll need to follow some important steps to get the most out of the system:
- Invisalign aligners are to be worn a minimum of 22 hours a day. They should only be removed to brush and floss your teeth or while you are eating.
- The aligners will move your teeth gradually, and every two weeks you will move to the next aligner in your set.
- You will visit with your dentist every six weeks so that your progress can be monitored and necessary adjustments can be made.
Total treatment time with Invisalign will vary and is based on the amount of movement that your teeth need. Average treatment times can be as short as five months or as long as two years, and the length of your treatment will depend on the unique features of your mouth.
