Things to Know About Invisalign Treatment

Woman smiling with clear alignersA fantastic alternative to bulky metal braces, the Invisalign system has long been a leader in the orthodontic care industry. It’s a trusted, predictable, and virtually invisible solution, so many have opted for clear Invisalign aligners over traditional metal braces.

Learn why and how millions of people have used these transparent, removable aligners to apply gentle pressure to key points and straighten smiles.

You Can See Your Future Smile

Every two weeks, you change your plastic aligners out with the next ones in a series tailored to your needs.

Your smile straightens according to a plan set by digital mapping, which means you can see computer-generated 3D images of the results before you even put aligners on for the first time.

The Benefits Are Clear

Aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours per day, with the flexibility to take them out during meals, brushing, and flossing.

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, unlike braces, there are no real restrictions on the food you eat during care. Plus, the easy access for brushing and flossing promotes better oral hygiene.

At the same time, while there are advantages of removing aligners, one of the more pronounced benefits of Invisalign treatment can be felt when you wear them. The clear design is not only discreet, making your orthodontic care almost entirely invisible, but it is more comfortable than most experiences with traditional braces.

The Keys to Successful Treatment

Success with Invisalign treatment depends on consistently wearing your aligners and attending periodic checkups to monitor progress and ensure everything is on target.

The duration of Invisalign care varies depending on the case, but it is often comparable to the length of time people wear traditional braces. Aligners are most suitable for mild to moderate orthodontic issues and may not apply to severe cases.
