Invisalign: The Ultimate Guide

A lot of people consider a smile to be someone’s most important physical characteristic. A beautiful smile is constantly at the top of the list when naming things that people first notice when they meet someone new. A great smile can give you the confidence you need to achieve your goals and try new things, but unfortunately not everyone has a smile they can be proud of. About 65% of adults have unaligned teeth and approximately 20% of the population does not have an ideal bite. But as an adult, a lot of people feel self-conscious about braces and so some people feel helpless when it comes to fixing their smile.There is a modern solution for your smile, though: Invisalign!What is Invisalign?Invisalign is a teeth-straightening alternative! Instead of living with a smile you’re not happy with or getting bulky and noticeable metal braces, Invisalign is a comfortable and virtually invisible, medical grade polyurethane resin that you wear over your teeth. No wires to tighten, no brackets to worry about, no rubber bands, nothing! Just the aligners and your teeth! The polyurethane resin is a type of plastic that is BPA free and the average length of treatment for Invisalign patients is about a year.How Does Invisalign Work?When you decide to get Invisalign and we create a treatment plan for you, we take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth and create a digital 3-D image of them. We then map out the planned movements of your teeth with Invisalign and create custom aligners for you! These smooth and comfortable aligners don’t irritate your gums and cheeks like braces do. The Invisalign aligners need to be worn for at least 20-22 hours a day, but you can take them out to brush, floss and eat! Being able to take out the aligners makes it easier and more comfortable to keep your teeth clean!Approximately every two weeks you will be wearing a new set of aligners as the the teeth-straightening process progresses. We monitor your teeth alignment progress with checkups and consultations every couple of weeks, but for the most part you will just be seeing your smile getting closer and closer to your dream smile!For people with crowded teeth, spaced out teeth, overbite, under bite or a deep bite, we can help you get the smile you’ve always dreamed about with Invisalign!
