How Does It Work?
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your orthodontist.
What's more, a virtual treatment plan shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment.
Reasons To Smile With Invisalign
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
The Invisalign treatment can slot simply and easily into your daily routine, without any fuss or embarrassment,
- Since the movements are planned by computer, they are more efficient. Often, with regular braces, teeth end up being moved back and forth in an effort to get them into the correct positions,
- Since there are no brackets to catch food or plaque, the risk of tooth decay or tooth damage from braces is significantly lower with Invisalign,
- Time for a snack? No problem. Unlike fixed braces, you can remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss,
- There are no metal wires or brackets, so no need to worry about mouth irritations. The added comfort and absence of sharp metal brackets makes it much easier to play woodwind and brass musical instruments. Teenagers involved in sports also like them.
