Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment
Invisalign treatment, which is a set of clear aligner trays, was created as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign is designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Just like braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material, and are fabricated to fit your mouth. Each aligner is created a little different, so that each time you switch aligners, your teeth move a little more.
Aligners are worn for 22-24 hours each day, and for two weeks, before putting in a new aligner. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case.
Advantages of Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign
Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.
- Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
- Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
- Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
- Clear aligners are removable so it’s easier for you to brush and floss after meals.
