What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Instead of using the metal wires and brackets that are found in traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear, plastic, removable aligners to offer a discreet method of undergoing orthodontic treatment. While metal braces can be highly apparent, others won’t even recognize that you’re wearing Invisalign! Even though they appear much different from traditional braces, they still work in a similar fashion. Like braces, the Invisalign clear aligners apply gentle, controlled forces in order to gradually move teeth into a straighter position.

The Invisalign Process

Despite the advanced technology that it uses, the Invisalign process couldn’t be any simpler! It follows these steps:

  • First, you’ll need to visit your family orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Unfortunately, some patients aren’t candidates for Invisalign, which is why you’ll need to consult with your family orthodontist first.
  • If you’re a candidate, a treatment plan will then be crafted for you. This will be created by taking an impression of your teeth through digital x-rays.
  • With the utilization of the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign will take this treatment plan and translate it into a series of precisely shaped aligners that are personalized for a patient.
  • You’ll receive a series of aligner sets. You’ll wear each set in a designated order for two weeks at a time, making sure to keep them in for at least 22 hours per day. As you go through each set of aligners, you’ll notice that your teeth will be gradually moving into their proper place.
  • After you’ve worn each set, you’ll find that you’ll have the new and beautiful smile that you’ve always dreamed of!

Why You Should Consider Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners offer many advantages over traditional braces. These include the following:

  • The most noticeable (or unnoticeable!) advantage of Invisalign is that they’re nearly invisible and can provide for an almost completely discreet orthodontic treatment.
  • The plastic aligners will feel more comfortable in your mouth than the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces.
  • Because the aligners are removable, it’s much easier to clean your teeth.
  • With normal braces, you have to avoid certain foods because they can potentially harm the brackets and wires. Since you’ll be taking the aligners out to eat, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods.
  • The aligners will protect your teeth from being damaged from night-time teeth grinding.
