Invisalign: The Invisible Secret To A Straight Smile

What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses custom-made clear aligners. Invisalign removable aligners fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner gradually shifts and rotates your teeth as needed. The aligners are created to apply just the right amount of force, ensuring you only feel a little pressure and no pain.
Typically, you switch your aligners every week as you follow the custom treatment plan we created for you. You will see us every six weeks for a checkup to make sure everything is moving along as it should.
Invisalign aligners are the only aligners made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Invisalign?
There are several advantages to using Invisalign as your orthodontic treatment, including:
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic material, making them practically invisible to others.
An orthodontic treatment plan with Invisalign usually takes just 12 months, while traditional braces can about 2-3 years.
Because Invisalign uses plastic instead of metal, you don’t have to worry about brackets or wires injuring your mouth. It’s also great news for patients with a nickel allergy. Additionally, Invisalign aligners only use mild pressure to gradually align your teeth, whereas traditional braces require the wires to be tightened, making for a more uncomfortable treatment.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes it easier for you to eat and clean your teeth. We recommend you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day to get the results you’re looking for.
Invisalign is particularly great for teens and professionals who want to avoid having a mouth full of metal. The discreet appearance and ability to remove the aligners make Invisalign an attractive option for anyone wanting to straighten their smile. Plus, as we briefly mentioned before, with Invisalign clear orthodontics, you don’t have to come into the office as often for adjustments. Instead, we just need to see you every six weeks for a checkup.
We should also mention that by straightening your teeth, you’re making a great investment in the future of your oral health. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean and keep clean.
