Invisalign® works by using a series of clear, plastic alignment trays. These trays are custom made using computer technology, and exert consistent pressure on your teeth to gradually shift them into their ideal alignment. Patients using Invisalign clear aligners will wear each set of their removable trays for about two weeks, and then exchange them for the next set in the series to continue their orthodontic progress. Each set of aligners represents a new stage in the smile alignment process, and by the end of the treatment period, your smile should have progressed into the ideal position.
There are many benefits to Invisalign orthodontic treatment, including:
- Faster treatment time. Invisalign can typically correct smiles in about a year, compared with the two or more years of treatment required for traditional braces.
- Because the trays are removable, you don’t need to make any dietary or oral hygiene changes. Simply remove your trays while eating, brushing, or flossing.
- Increased comfort. Each Invisalign tray is designed specifically for you using thin plastic, making it much more comfortable than other orthodontic treatments.
- Invisalign is effective in treating all the same problems as traditional braces, including advanced orthodontic problems such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
