How Invisalign works
There are multiple types of braces for adults who want to straighten their teeth and fix bite issues, including traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces, tooth-colored braces, and clear aligner therapy. While metal braces were the mainstay in orthodontics for decades, many adults prefer to avoid this type of treatment because of the discomfort of metal brackets and wires and the negative impact they have on your smile for the duration of treatment. With Invisalign, however, patients can rely on safe and effective tooth straightening without anyone else needing to know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-designed tooth aligners that gradually shift your teeth and bite into their ideal position. Rather than using wires that place force upon all teeth at once, Invisalign gently moves one tooth at a time, causing less pain than traditional braces. In addition, Invisalign is:
- Effective – while treatment times vary, the average patient undergoes therapy for 12 months
- Comfortable – the clear, BPA-free aligners are designed for comfort so you can speak and even drink clear liquids comfortably while wearing them
- Convenient – the aligners are completely removable, enabling you to eat all of your favorite foods without worry and to brush and floss your teeth without needing to work around wires and brackets
- Discreet – the aligners are nearly invisible in your mouth
Issues Invisalign can treat
Invisalign is a great option for many patients with mild to moderate:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Cross bite
- Open bite
However, it is important to understand that Invisalign is not right for everyone. In certain cases, other orthodontic treatments are the best choice for achieving optimal results. Dr. Worful will evaluate your smile and talk with you about your treatment goals to help determine whether Invisalign is the right option for your specific needs.
