Is Invisalign Right for Me?Invisalign can fix the majority of crooked teeth cases. Patients with an underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite, gaps, or overcrowding can also benefit from Invisalign treatment. However, the Invisalign system works best for patients over the age of 13. Invisalign has developed a line of products specifically designed for teens so that they can continue to maintain active lifestyles. Invisalign treatment is also suitable and beneficial for adults. However, adult teeth are more difficult to move, so the process may take slightly longer.
Advantages of InvisalignInvisalign offers numerous advantages to patients of all ages.
Superior ComfortRemovable clear aligner trays provide all-day comfort. Invisalign aligners use a high-quality resin that will not irritate or damage your mouth.
Confident SmileCrooked teeth can affect your smile and self-confidence. Invisalign can straighten your teeth discreetly, so most people won’t be able to notice them. The clear aligner trays are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly.
Eat AnythingYou can enjoy all your favorite foods without changing your diet. Unfortunately, certain food and drinks can damage traditional braces, but you have no eating and drinking restrictions with Invisalign’s removable aligners.
Our Invisalign ProcessThe Invisalign treatment process starts with a consultation. The dentist will examine your teeth to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Afterward, they will create an Invisalign treatment plan for you. To map out the different stages of tooth movement, we will create a digital 3-D image of your teeth. After taking X-rays and scans, we will send the data to Invisalign. Invisalign will then create a set of BPA-free plastic aligners made for you.
Invisalign Treatment DurationEach clear aligner tray needs a replacement every one to two weeks. The dentist will tell you when and how often to change the trays. Generally, it takes 12 to 18 months to complete the treatment process.
How to Care for Invisalign AlignersKeeping your Invisalign trays clean is one of the best ways to maintain them. Clean the aligners when you brush your teeth in the morning and evening. The easiest way to do this is gently scrub your aligners using toothpaste and a soft toothbrush. Most patients need to wear Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day. Regularly cleaning the aligners can remove harmful bacteria and maintain your oral hygiene.
