Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective alternative to traditional metal braces. We can determine if Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you.
Invisalign refers to an innovative orthodontic treatment that offers the same great results as metal braces but with much less inconvenience. A patient who receives Invisalign treatment will wear a series of tightly fitted aligners that continuously adjust the alignment and positioning of their teeth over time. These aligners are custom-made based on digital images of the patient’s teeth. Each aligner is replaced with a new one every two weeks until the desired results are achieved. Patients who begin Invisalign treatment must be committed to wearing an aligner for at least 20 to 22 hours per day for the best possible results. Most patients complete Invisalign treatment after a period of one to two years.
Most patients find that Invisalign treatment is much easier and more convenient than using traditional metal braces. This is for several reasons. For one, Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out at any time. This allows the patient to eat anything they would like during treatment, and no major changes or adjustments to their usual oral care practices are necessary. Patients also appreciate the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign aligners are also very easy to clean, and they won’t become stained as long as the user cares for them properly. Finally, Invisalign aligners are perfect for athletes, since they do not present the same injury risks as traditional metal braces.

Invisalign has proven to be effective in treating many orthodontic issues. These include crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, spacing issues, bite imbalances and more. We can determine if Invisalign treatment can help correct any orthodontic issues you are experiencing.
Invisalign aligners should be worn for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day. In fact, the only time you should remove the aligner is when you are eating or drinking anything other than water or when cleaning the aligner. Failing to follow this guideline could lead to treatment becoming stalled or delayed.
It is unlikely that other people will recognize that you are using Invisalign clear aligners. This makes Invisalign treatment ideal for people who want to be discreet.
Most people complete Invisalign treatment in a period of one to two years. The actual length of time will depend on your specific case. Some patients will need to use Invisalign for a longer period of time. Remember, failing to wear the current aligner for the recommended amount of time each day can delay or stall treatment.
