Is Invisalign Right for You?

Straight teeth are associated with everything from a better social life and more employment opportunities to higher self-esteem. New technology, like Invisalign, has helped to make straight teeth a possibility for those who want a beautiful smile, but prefer a more discreet and effective treatment option than braces.

 

What We Love about Invisalign

Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners that are custom engineered for each patient’s case, and designed to shift the teeth into the desired position. Patients wear each pair of aligners for 10 days, 20 hours per day to achieve the result. Here are the top reasons we recommend Invisalign to our patients:

 

It’s Invisible

The aligners are clear and nearly imperceptible. When it comes to social confidence, many patients have found that they feel more open to orthodontic treatment when it is undetectable.

 

It Encourages Healthy Habits

We’ve found that Invisalign helps patients become more diligent about brushing and flossing, as these habits become more routine throughout the course of treatment.

 

It’s More Comfortable

Traditional braces involve metal brackets that are fixed to the teeth. The torqueing forces applied all at once as well as the rough edges can cause sore teeth and wires can poke the inside of the cheek. Patients are more comfortable and experience less pain with Invisalign’s gentle tooth movements and smooth plastic aligners.

 

It’s More Convenient

With Invisalign, there are virtually no emergency appointments. And because the aligners are removable, patients can eat all of their favorite foods without worrying about brackets popping off.

 

It’s Motivating

Invisalign utilizes a three-dimensional imaging system that allows patients to see the end result of their treatment. This not only allows them to visualize what their new smile will look like, it also reinforces the importance of sticking with the treatment plan.

 

What to Consider Before Choosing Invisalign

  • For Invisalign to be successful, patients need to commit to wearing the aligners for 20 hours each day. If the trays aren’t worn as prescribed, patients won’t achieve the anticipated results.
  • The aligners must be removed for eating, drinking. It’s very important that patients remember to put the aligners back in place after these activities.
  • With Invisalign, patients will need a new set of trays every 10 days. Office visits won’t necessarily happen that frequently, but your teeth will need to be regularly examined to make sure they are moving into the correct position.
  • Invisalign corrects everything from crooked and protruding teeth to more complex dental issues like serious malocclusion, overbite or underbite. Call our office to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
