This advanced system uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements prescribed by your dentist. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
Benefits of Invisalign
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment, and many reasons why so many people make it their go-to option for transforming their smile.
- A discreet appearance
- Comfortable aligners
- Easy homecare
- Fewer trips to the orthodontist
- No diet restrictions (you just remove the aligners while you eat!)
- Increased confidence
And, of course, the biggest benefit of Invisalign is that you will have a beautifully straight smile.
While Invisalign can help most people with their orthodontic needs, there are some situations in which it is an ideal solution, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Overcrowding and overlaps
- Crooked teeth
- Protruding teeth
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign is a great option for most people. However, those with severe or complex orthodontic needs may find that traditional braces are a better issue. The ideal candidate for Invisalign is one who does not have any serious dental issues – and is willing to wear the aligners as they are intended. After all, it’s nice that they are removable, but you have to remember to wear them!
Frequently Asked Questions
Will Invisalign aligners work as well as traditional metal braces?
Yes, absolutely. Invisalign has been proven to be just as effective as traditional metal braces as long as they are worn as they should be. However, because they are removable, if they aren’t worn at least 20-22 hours each day, treatment could take longer.
Is Invisalign good for complex orthodontic issues?
Invisalign works great for most orthodontic needs. For teeth that are severely misaligned, rotated, or overlapping, traditional braces may be a better option.
Does Invisalign hurt?
No, Invisalign aligners do not hurt. Each time you switch to a new aligner, it may initially feel a little tight on your teeth, but this will subside within a day or two.
Is Invisalign treatment covered by insurance?
It is common for insurance to help cover the cost of Invisalign treatment, but coverage does vary based on your specific insurance plan.
