What is Invisalign?

People usually want to straighten their teeth for a few reasons. They are usually trying to improve their appearance, brush and floss more easily, or chew better in the long run.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that adults have their teeth evaluated by an orthodontist at least once every 10 years. Many adults are candidates to straighten their teeth, even in late adulthood.

It’s never too late to get your teeth straightened. Not only does this make them easier to maintain and clean, it also relieves headaches if you’re having trouble chewing. Straight teeth are also better for the oral health of adults and children alike.

Straightening teeth can be done by braces (traditional metal braces) or clear aligners (aligners that use clear plastic to guide teeth into position, like Invisalign).

Straightening your teeth with clear aligners like Invisalign is a time-tested way of realizing these goals, and may be the best option for you if you’re considering orthodontic treatment.

For many, teeth straightening is an investment in their future. The benefits of straightening teeth can extend life and improve quality of life.

One of the most common reasons for wanting straighter teeth is appearance. The improvement in an individuals appearance can be dramatic. More often than not, people who have straighter teeth are seen as being more attractive, confident, and healthier.

Most adults are candidates to straighten their teeth, even in late adulthood. Traditional braces with brackets and wires are still a good option, but many people want something less noticeable. That’s where clear aligners really shine.

Benefits of Invisalign and Clear Aligners

Invisalign, and many other similar companies, offer an option to straighten teeth with clear tooth trays (aligners) that are barely noticeable. Clear aligners are a great alternative to regular braces and we are happy to be able to offer this to our patients. And the best part is that they’re removable and adjustable!

Invisalign is a new way to get straighter teeth without the use of metal braces. The Invisalign treatment starts with a series of impressions made from mouthwash or pressed against a dental mold. These impressions are then analyzed by an Invisalign specialist who creates a treatment plan that is personalized to the patient’s needs and goals. This plan can include up to 50 different aligners that gradually move teeth into place.

A recent study found that up to 86% of adults with crooked teeth could benefit from Invisalign treatment. Just like traditional braces, this treatment straightens teeth without the need for metal brackets and wires. But unlike traditional braces, this treatment is virtually invisible with the only evidence left behind being straighter teeth.

This revolutionary treatment is offered by most orthodontists and can be tailored to each individual’s needs. Invisalign treatment can straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months!

For some patients, Invisalign is a better option than braces. The aligners are made of clear plastic and are removable, which means they can be taken out to eat or brush their teeth. This also means that there is no metal hardware to make them less noticeable under the patient’s clothes.
