Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth and corrects bite misalignment. Treatment consists of a set of clear plastic retainer-like trays you wear over your teeth, called aligners. The aligners are virtually invisible on your teeth while shifting them into proper alignment. You’ll wear a series of aligners, each one for about two weeks, until your teeth are in the desired position. Average treatment time takes anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is one of the most highly requested orthodontic treatments due to the following benefits:
- Discreet. The clear aligners are virtually invisible on the teeth. You can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.
- Comfortable. The smooth flexible plastic won’t irritate your lips, cheeks, or tongue. Invisalign shifts the teeth gradually to minimize discomfort.
- Convenient. Invisalign is removable for eating and cleaning your teeth. There are no food restrictions or special brushing or flossing instructions.
- Shorter treatment. In most cases Invisalign takes less time than braces to straighten teeth.
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat mild to moderate orthodontic cases, but not everyone is a candidate. If you have misaligned teeth, crowding, gaps, overbite, underbite, cross bite, Invisalign may be effective for you. A brief evaluation can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
