Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative treatment to traditional metal braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move teeth. The aligners are simple to use, fitting directly over the arch of the teeth, and they're virtually invisible when worn, meaning no one needs to know you're correcting your teeth. The best part? The aligners are completely removable – they can be popped in and out to brush, floss, eat, and drink. This means Invisalign comes with not dietary restrictions, and maintaining proper oral hygiene – something vital for effective orthodontic treatment – is a breeze.

Here are just a few of the benefits to the Invisalign system:

  • Oral Hygiene: With completely removable aligners, brushing and flossing are as easy as ever.
  • Aesthetic Appearance: Say goodbye to metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are sleek, slim, and translucent – no one needs to know you're wearing them!
  • Expanded Diet: While we still advise you to avoid foods harmful to the teeth, Invisalign doesn't carry nearly the dietary restrictions that braces do.
  • Comfort: Invisalign is soft and flexible and won't irritate the soft tissues of the mouth like braces and wires.
  • Grinding Protection: Clear aligners can function as night guards, helping to counteract teeth-grinding and clenching.

The Process

Invisalign comes in a series of prefabricated aligners, with each new aligner moving the teeth further toward their optimal position. To start, we take a series of precise measurements on a variety of elements in your face and jaw. Using these measurements, we design a comprehensive treatment plan on specialized computer software to move your teeth from their current to their optimal positions. We use this plan to design a series of Invisalign aligners, custom manufactured to perfectly fit your mouth. Each aligner is worn 20-22 hours a day for about two weeks before switching to the next one.

Invisalign Teen

In addition to the standard treatment, Invisalign has developed a specialized treatment designed specifically for teens - Invisalign teen. With a variety of features designed to fit the teenage lifestyle including special "eruption tabs" to hold space open for molars that haven't fully grown in and "compliance indicators" that ensure aligners are being worn long enough, Invisalign teen is the perfect orthodontic treatment for today's teenagers.

The Importance of Oral Hygiene

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is that it makes it easy to maintain proper oral hygiene - so be sure to maintain it! Failing to maintain hygiene can cause a buildup of food, plaque, and bacteria that can devastate teeth and sabotage orthodontic treatment. Your teeth are especially vulnerable to decay during orthodontic treatment, so be sure to brush and floss after every meal and clean your aligners regularly by brushing them and rinsing them in lukewarm water.
