Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth instead of traditional metal braces. At The Dentists LLC, the aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth and gums to shift them into place gradually. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, and patients will need to visit the dentist every two weeks to check on their progress and get new aligners. Unlike regular braces, you can remove your aligners to eat or brush your teeth. Most patients can move their teeth into proper alignment in about one year. Some cases are faster, and some are slower, so results vary from patient to patient.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Fabricating a set of aligners begins with a digital scan of the patient’s mouth. This scan is sent to an off-site laboratory where technicians use a computer to design the aligners. Patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks as their teeth gradually move into place. Unlike traditional braces, these clear aligner trays are completely removable. Patients can eat and drink whatever they want during treatment without working around metal brackets or wires. Patients also don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in their brackets or wires, leading to tooth decay. Brushing and flossing are also much more manageable with Invisalign in place than with traditional braces. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before switching to the next set in the series.
Is Invisalign Suitable for Me?
No Metal Brackets or Wires
Invisalign features clear aligners custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth. These aligners are made from smooth plastic, making them incredibly difficult to see when worn. Unlike traditional braces, you can straighten your smile without anyone noticing you are wearing an orthodontic appliance. This means you can feel confident straightening your teeth no matter where you are, whether at work or college.
