What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® uses computer-aided design (CAD) technology to generate a series of form-fitted, clear aligning trays that gently shift teeth into position as patients graduate through treatment. These aligning trays are made from clear plastic rather than metal and are virtually invisible while in use. Patients benefit from concealed treatment and greater comfort when compared with other methods.
Other benefits of Invisalign include:
- Faster Treatment
- Virtually Invisible Design
- No Metal Components
- No Diet Restrictions
This treatment can be completed in as little as one year. Patients can expect graduating through anywhere from 30 to 45+ sets of aligners per arch. Trays are changed every one to two weeks to ensure patients maintain steady movement over a period of time.
Just as effective as traditional metal braces in select cases, Invisalign Teen is an exceptional way to straighten teeth during some of the most impressionable years in a young adult’s life.
Invisalign Teen supplies a unique way to help patients follow treatment as planned, such as using a Blue Dot Wear Indicator to show when trays need to be changed. Patients living an active lifestyle also benefit from avoiding metal and using comfortable alignment trays that rest snuggly over teeth.
Invisalign Express offers patients a cheaper and quicker way of addressing minor forms of misalignment faster and at a more affordable price. This method involves five stages patients go through to address the teeth most visible in the smile and provide mild alignment.
What can I expect with Invisalign?
Invisalign can be just as effective as traditional braces in many cases. This method can address several forms of misalignment, including overcrowding, gaps, cross bite, overbite, and underbite.
Patients receiving Invisalign can expect a period of adjustment while getting comfortable with the treatment system. Trays must remain on teeth for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, and should be removed while eating or drinking beverages other than water.
