How Does Invisalign Work?

Whether you are heading to a job interview or on a first date, a smile is often one of the first features that someone notices. So, what does your smile say about you? If you are dealing with a crooked, misaligned smile, then you may feel rather self-conscious. And if you are a teen or adult, you may wish you could achieve that more attractive smile without having to sport a mouth full of metal. But what if we told you that you could get a straighter smile without metal brackets and wires?

Invisalign is the only nearly invisible way to fix common dental malocclusions such as:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowding

If you’ve always wanted to close that gap between your front teeth or if you hate how your bottom teeth overlap, then Invisalign might be all you need to fix these imperfections.

Through a series of customized, clear aligners we can tailor a treatment plan that helps shift teeth into their proper position just by wearing these removable trays. Each tray is custom-made to help mold and reshape your smile to achieve your ideal look. How many aligners you wear throughout the course of your treatment will depend on the severity of your condition.

Ideally, each aligner is worn about 20-22 hours each day for two weeks. After, you will replace your aligners for the next set in your treatment plan. What makes Invisalign such a great option for older teens and adults isn’t just the fact that Invisalign is discreet, but also that it fits comfortably into your lifestyle without changing anything.

With traditional braces, certain foods are off limits and brushing and flossing around delicate metal and brackets is enough to leave anyone feeling anxious. But these aren’t issues with Invisalign. Just remove the aligners prior to eating, brushing or flossing and then clean them thoroughly and put them back in. Imagine going to school or work without worrying that other people will notice your braces. This possibility can be a reality when you choose Invisalign.
