What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Not only are Invisalign aligners nearly invisible and much less noticeable than braces, they are removable and comfortable. Unlike braces, you are able to remove the aligners throughout the day allowing you to eat more of the foods you enjoy and brush and floss as usual. Compared to braces, the smooth aligners are much less likely to cause sore lips and cheeks. With Invisalign, your treatment is digitally pre-planned. 3-D computer imaging will show your virtual treatment in motion revealing how your teeth will move and how really straight your teeth will be. As you have no wires, braces, or bands requiring adjustments, you can expect to spend less time in our office.
How does it work?
Most treatments include a series of 14 to 32 upper and lower aligners to be worn for about 2 weeks each. Treatment, therefore, typically takes between 7 and 16 months. Each aligner is intended to move your teeth a prescribed incremental amount that progressively moves your teeth as you move from one aligner in the series to the next. You’ll visit our office about every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
