The Invisalign invisible aligner system is used to treat adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Invisalign works by moving your teeth into a healthier alignment without the need for brackets and wires. This orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, custom-made, plastic aligner trays to gently shift your teeth over time.
Each aligner is worn for one to two weeks, or as prescribed by our dentist. For the best results, aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours a day. Treatment times depend on the condition of your teeth and the degree of correction needed, but most patients wear Invisalign for one to two years.
Invisalign trays are removable. Simply take your aligners out when eating or drinking. Brush twice daily and floss once daily to maintain good oral health. You can also enjoy an active lifestyle with Invisalign.
In addition, Invisalign is easier to take care of than traditional braces. Simply rinse your aligners every night and brush them using a soft-bristled brush to keep them clean. For teen patients, Invisalign comes with blue compliance indicators to assure parents their child is wearing them as recommended by our dentist.
Generally, Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces. There may be some pressure or discomfort when wearing a new set of aligners. This sensation usually passes in a few days as your mouth adjusts to the fit of your new aligners. If you experience any pain or other issues while wearing your aligners, be sure to discuss your concerns with our dentist. We want to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
Invisalign is recommended for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. For patients with more complex dental problems, braces may be more effective. Schedule a consultation to find out more. Our team will help design a treatment plan that meets your needs and goals.
