All About Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is made from a durable, transparent plastic. When worn, these aligners apply pressure to crooked and misaligned teeth without affecting your occlusion or bite strength.

As your teeth begin to shift, you'll wear different sets of aligners. Each new set is discrete and fully removable, so your orthodontic treatment never has to interfere with your  lifestyle or habits. Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that is both comfortable and convenient, giving you every reason to smile with confidence.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of permanent metal brackets, Invisalign shifts the position of your teeth with a series of specialized plastic aligners that are customized to fit your teeth. Their tight fit ensures that they don't affect your speech patterns or common oral activities, and the transparent plastic will not draw attention when you are speaking or smiling, either.

Each Invisalign aligner is generally worn around 22 hours a day for a period of two weeks. Once the current aligner has shifted the teeth into their appropriate position, they can be replaced and set aside. When you begin to use the new aligner, your teeth will continue to shift in their alignment without regressing.

Most people usually require around 26 sets of aligners. If you’re diligent with your treatment and wear your aligners for the appropriate amount of time per day,  Invisalign treatment typically lasts about a year. Treatment time can vary depending on your unique orthodontic needs and how well you’ve managed to follow the aligner schedule.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign has a number of benefits that make it a preferred option over traditional braces and competing aligner brands, like Invisalign:

  • Almost Unnoticeable – Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. They allow you to keep your treatment private and go about your day without having your orthodontic treatment on display.
  • Adjustable & Removable – While you will still need to wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 hours per day, they can be removed for activities like eating, drinking, or playing sports. They will also not affect your oral hygiene habits as they can be removed when you are brushing or flossing your teeth.
  • Comfortable – Invisalign aligners fit snugly around your teeth and will not cause any discomfort to your mouth. There are no wires, brackets, or rubber bands to restrict your oral functions.
  • More Affordable – Invisalign is an affordable orthodontic solution. It is typically less expensive than Invisalign and certain types of traditional braces.
