Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment system so effective at correcting a variety of teeth alignment issues that patients have come to ask for it by name.
How Invisalign® works
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, a treatment plan is created. Invisalign® technology enables the dentist to map out your treatment course and show you on a computer screen how your teeth will be moved into their ideal locations.
This aesthetic orthodontic treatment features a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually unnoticeable when worn. Orthodontic checkups are scheduled about every six weeks, and you typically receive three sets of aligners at those appointments. Each set is worn for about two weeks before progressing to the next in the series.
Invisalign® packs powerful benefits
In addition to its clear aligners that others will hardly notice, Invisalign® offers these benefits:
- No dietary restrictions- The aligners are removed when eating, so you can eat all of the foods you love without fear of bending or breaking orthodontic appliances.
- Dental hygiene is easy- Because the aligners are removable, you can practice oral hygiene as normal without having to clean around appliances, or thread dental floss beneath arch wires and around brackets.
- Faster treatment time- Invisalign® treatment typically takes 18 months or less. Conventional braces often are worn two or more years.
- You can remove them for key moments, such as professional photos, speaking engagements and playing wind instruments.
