What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of dental corrective treatment that is virtually invisible and custom designed for each and every person who uses it.

How Does it Work?

The process begins with a consultation from your dental health care professional, who will assess your needs and establish a treatment plan.

Essentially, your dentist will make a step-by-step plan with the Invisalign technology that maps exactly how and where your teeth need to move.

Invisalign is not only an effective option for people who are seeking treatment/correction for the first time; but also for those who have had unsuccessful dental corrections in the past.

Though each case is different, so the consultation with your dentist is vital in determining if Invisalign is the right fit for you.

The BPA free aligners are made of thermoplastic material that has been tested for biocompatibility
to ensure that they will not irritate or agitate the inside of the wearers mouth.

How Can Invisalign Make MY Life Better?

Invisalign has a ton of advantages, but the most appealing of them is the convenience available to those who choose Invisalign as an alternative to traditional metal braces.

The aligners are designed to be worn for 20-22 hours a day, but are 100% removable which allows you to eat, drink, brush, and floss whenever it works best for you.
You’re not bound to any dietary restrictions because of the aligners, which means that fixing your smile no longer means sacrificing the foods that you love.

Another cool thing about Invisalign? You can see what you’re teeth will look like after treatment before you even get your first set of aligners.
Because your dentist establishes how and where your teeth need to move to correct the problem, you can see exactly what is going to happen. Invisalign aligners control both the amount of force put on your teeth as well as the timing, so there isn’t unnecessary pressure on your teeth. This works because only certain teeth are allowed to move based on the stage of treatment that you are in.

Even cooler, you get a new set of aligners every two-weeks so you can see the transformation in real-time too.

How Long Will My Invisalign Treatment Take?

Everyone’s teeth are different, and so are their treatment plans though the average is somewhere around 12 months or so. A lot can happen in a year, and one of them can be a better, brighter smile.
