Invisalign is one of the most sought after orthodontic treatments because of the way it helps patients straighten their smile discreetly. Through the use of clear plastic aligners, patients are able to improve the look and function of their teeth without having to worry about metal brackets and wires and a drastic change to their diet and oral hygiene. When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers patients discretion, comfort, flexibility, so it is no surprise that so many adults and teens alike are choosing this option to improve their smile.
The Invisalign® Process
When getting Invisalign, the process has been found to be simple for most patients. We utilize digital technology to capture images of the patient’s teeth. These digital images allow us to create a digital plan of how we will adjust the teeth, and can even show the patient this representation so they can fully understand how their teeth will shift. Plastic aligners are then created and given to patients to wear over the course of treatment. Each set of aligners adjust the patient’s teeth slightly, so over time and the course of several sets of aligners, the teeth will be shifted into the ideal position.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign has become so popular because of the many benefits it offers patients in place of traditional orthodontics. Since Invisalign is made up of clear plastic material, it is virtually invisible in the smile. This means, patients are able to straighten their teeth discreetly, making it an ideal option for teens and adults. And since the aligners are not cemented onto the teeth like traditional metal brackets, Invisalign is able to be removed at any time. This allows patients to eat the foods they love and clean their teeth properly without restriction. Lastly, with proper compliance of wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, Invisalign can straighten teeth faster, with less discomfort, and fewer trips to the orthodontist than traditional options!
