How Invisalign Works

In the past, those with misaligned teeth had few orthodontic options. Traditional metal braces, which consist of a series of wires, brackets, and bands, would be used to pull teeth into alignment. However, metal braces tended to be painful and uncomfortable. Treatment could take a year or more, during which time patients had to avoid any foods that could damage their braces and take care to clean around the brackets in order to avoid tooth decay or gum disease. Today, patients have another option: Invisalign.

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to correct misalignments and malocclusions. During the treatment period, teeth will be gently moved through controlled, carefully timed pressure. Rather than moving all the teeth at once, Invisalign moves each tooth individually at various treatment stages, which can reduce discomfort. As teeth begin to shift and move, the tendons and bones of the mouth will adjust to hold them into place permanently.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, which results in incredibly discreet orthodontic treatment. Teens and adults whose teeth are all fully erupted may be candidates for Invisalign. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, you will begin your treatment with a comprehensive dental exam. During this exam, your orthodontist will map out a treatment plan based on the unique attributes of your smile. Advanced diagnostics, such as 3-D imaging, may be used to accurately represent your bite. The computerized images are necessary to completely tailor your treatment experience.

Every tooth movement is precisely calculated during the planning stage so that treatment will be faster and more comfortable. Fewer office visits are necessary since each aligner can be changed by the user every two weeks or on the predetermined schedule. Because the aligners are removable, patients can continue to enjoy all their favorite foods and drinks. They can maintain better dental hygiene by brushing and flossing just as they have always done. Patients should wear their aligners for 20 hours a day, including while sleeping, for best results. Most treatment plans last about a year.
