What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign clear braces system is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. The aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into place. When your teeth move into position guided by one aligner, it will be time to move on to the next, which will further move your teeth into alignment. This change between sets usually occurs on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, but your actual schedule will be determined by your dentist on a case by case basis.

Invisalign Benefits

Invisalign Benefits

One of the key advantages of Invisalign is that it is clear. When placed on your teeth, your aligners are virtually invisible. Another great benefit of this system is that, unlike traditional braces, these aligners are removable. This allows you to eat and drink what you want throughout the process, and it makes keeping up with a regular oral hygiene routine easy. Imagine trying to floss with traditional braces! Many patients also note how comfortable the treatment is. The process is designed to be gentle and gradual, with each aligner personalized to your teeth and mouth.

How Long Does It Take?

How Long Does It Take?

The average time to finish the Invisalign treatment is between nine and 15 months. But the time it takes to complete the process will vary, because every patient’s teeth are different. When you make an appointment with us, we can offer an assessment and help you visualize what your teeth might look like when complete. We will also schedule regular checkups with you to measure your progress over time and help ensure you’re on the right track. An interesting feature for teens is that Invisalign offers “compliance indicators” that change color to show how often the aligners were worn. This allows parents to help ensure their children are wearing them correctly.
