Invisalign Treatment

To begin Invisalign treatment, we take dental scans of your teeth. These digital, detailed scans are used to create your treatment plan. We send the scans to a dental lab where the aligners are fabricated. Each pair of Invisalign aligners are different. They gradually shift the teeth into a straighter position over time. The aligners are switched out every few weeks as the teeth shift. When the aligners are completed, we will make sure that your first pair fits you perfectly.

Although Invisalign is easy to use, there are several ways that patients need to care for their aligners. Clean the aligners and your natural teeth after eating. Refrain from eating or drinking foods or beverages other than water as this can stain the aligners. Finally, when you are not using your aligners, keep them in their case.

Invisalign FAQs

Discover more about Invisalign as we answer common questions about this cosmetic treatment:

How long is Invisalign treatment?

Patients wear their aligners for 22 hours a day. For. the best results, we recommend that patients only remove their aligners to eat and clean their smiles. Invisalign treatment typically takes 12 to 18 months. However, this will depend on each patient’s orthodontic needs as well as their compliance to caring for their aligners.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

Patients may feel some tooth sensitivity or soreness as they get accustomed to each new pair of aligners. Many patients find that this soreness fades over time. In addition, metal braces can often be more painful than Invisalign. This is because the metal wires can poke and irritate the gums. Invisalign aligners conform to the teeth and do not have sharp edges.

How does Invisalign compare to metal braces?

Invisalign is a more comfortable and discreet option than traditional braces. This is because they are fabricated precisely to fit the smile. With Invisalign, patients do not need to visit the dentist to tighten their brackets or add wires. One added benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. Patients can easily brush and floss as well as eat without dietary restrictions. On the other hand, we may recommend metal braces for patients who have more severe orthodontic problems or overcrowding.
