How Does Invisalign Work?
Traditional braces use a series of brackets and wires to place pressure on teeth, shifting them into position. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic alignment trays to gently shift the smile into its ideal alignment. Each set of trays represents one step closer to the desired result. Patients wear the alignment trays for about two weeks, and then they exchange them for the next set in the series. After about a year of treatment, patients should see their desired result. The Invisalign orthodontic system has continued to improve over the past several years, and that means even complex bite alignment issues like over, under, and crossbite can be successfully treated using Invisalign.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
In addition to the obvious cosmetic appeal, Invisalign offers patients a variety of benefits compared with traditional orthodontic solutions including:
- Improved comfort as the plastic aligners are unlikely to irritate soft tissue
- No need for frequent visits to an orthodontist to adjust the brackets and wires, instead patients simply visit our office every four to six weeks so we can check their progress
- The removable aligners mean patients don’t need to change their diet or oral hygiene routines, simply remove alignment trays during meals or while brushing and flossing
- In addition to saving time throughout treatment with fewer, shorter checkup appointments, Invisalign treatment is typically completed within ten to eighteen months saving patients overall treatment time
