You’ve probably heard of Invisalign as an alternative to braces that’s subtle in appearance. But do you know how it actually works and how it can improve your smile?
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a unique way to straighten your smile that uses comfortable, clear trays to move your teeth. No need to suffer with a mouth full of metal! These trays – called aligners – are custom-made just for you so that they fit perfectly over your teeth.
How Does It Work?
By wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, they’re able to shift your teeth in a specific way. They can correct issues like gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, overly crowded teeth, and crossbites. Using the right amount of force in the right places, your aligners can move your teeth horizontally and vertically to give you your dream smile.
As your teeth move, you’ll change aligners so that they always match the movement of your teeth and keep up with your progress. We’ll discuss with you the best course of treatment and how often you switch aligners, and schedule check-ups every six weeks. With this very targeted treatment method, you can have a straighter smile in half the time of traditional treatment methods.
And, perhaps best of all, these aligners are nearly invisible. Most people won’t even be able to see that you’re wearing them, making for a much more comfortable and confident you! You can also remove the trays for special occasions and daily activities like brushing your teeth and eating that are made much more complicated with traditional braces. With Invisalign, it’s so much easier to get the smile you want!
