What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetically enhanced method for straightening teeth without the use of metal wires and brackets. It’s nearly invisible and does not involve the same restrictions as traditional braces. Invisalign is essentially a clear set of removable aligners that are custom-made with 3D imaging technology to fit the individual’s top and bottom teeth. You will get a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, and your teeth progressively shift into a straight position. You are expected to wear them for 21-22 hours a day to achieve the quickest results.

Benefits Of Invisalign

Swollen, red gums can often be the consequence of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also indications of periodontal disease. When teeth are appropriately aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the most effective defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign plays its part. The virtually invisible aligners gently and gradually shift your teeth into the proper position without noticeable brackets or wires. Additionally, the aligners are comfortable to wear and easily removable, enabling you to:

  • Eat whatever you want, when you want it
  • Brush, floss and care for your teeth how you would without braces
  • Play sports and participate in other extracurricular activities

The Convenience Of Invisalign

Overall treatment time averages 12-20 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will differ from case to case. With Invisalign, no painful adjustments are needed, and there are no clunky metal brackets or wires to deal with. This allows for a smooth care plan with fewer check-ups, as long as the patient maintains a consistent wearing pattern. Convenience is also one of the main reasons why more people than ever – both teens and adults – are opting for clear aligners to achieve their dream smile.
