How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a one-of-a-kind orthodontic treatment plan that can straighten your teeth fast without the use of metal brackets or wires on any of your teeth. Maybe you’ve considered braces in the past to beautify your smile, or maybe you’ve heard of Invisalign, but aren’t sure how it works. We are here to answer the most common questions about Invisalign.

Invisalign is designed to provide you with hassle free orthodontics, by using clear braces that work beautifully to align your teeth.

Get a Free Consultation

If you want to learn more about Invisalign, your first stop should be a qualified dentist. They will complete a Smile Assessment to determine how effective Invisalign will be for you, how long your treatment should last, and what the final results should be. Your dentist will then map out a treatment plan for your perfect smile and answer any questions or concerns you might have. Most Invisalign providers offer a free consultation so you can determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Introduction to the Aligners

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are custom made for your smile. The aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that is comfortable to wear and looks similar to whitening trays. The aligners fit firmly onto your teeth and cause the teeth to move to a new position gradually. Because of the firm fit, Invisalign will not fall off during the night, slip during a chat with friends, or change the way you sound when you talk.  

Your dentist will map out a treatment plan that involves which teeth move at what time. Over the course of your treatment you may go through 18-30 different aligners, each designed to move your teeth a little more into their ideal position. Providers recommend wearing the aligner 20-22 hours each day for the best results. With each new aligner, you get one step closer to perfect teeth.

Care and Convenience

Invisalign clear braces are much more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. They are practically invisible, so no one will ever know you have them. They fit seamlessly into your busy lifestyle.

Invisalign won’t be in your way at get togethers either because these invisible braces are removable. Whenever you eat, drink, or need to brush and floss, you simply remove them.

Invisalign allows you to avoid painful abrasions caused by metal and brackets in traditional braces, and because your dentist won’t need to make adjustments at each orthodontic appointment, your visits to the office will be faster and more effective as well.

Love Your Smile

Invisalign is designed to work with your busy lifestyle and provide you with the perfect smile as quickly and easily as possible. More than 3 million patients worldwide have changed their smile with Invisalign.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to braces, by using invisible braces to straighten your teeth. A series of invisible, removable trays slowly align your teeth, providing you with a beautiful smile with minimal interference to your daily life.

Be confident in your smile before, during, and after your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.
