Compared to Braces
With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a way of straightening teeth using nearly-invisible plastic aligners to gently and incrementally move teeth. No metal or ceramic braces or wires!
How does it work?
Aligner trays are custom-made for each patient, based upon the tooth movement specified by the dentist or orthodontist. These are made out of smooth, virtually invisible plastic that fits snugly over your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks, during which time the teeth will gradually and gently shift in position. At the end of two weeks, the next set of aligners continues moving your teeth further along toward their final position. Ideally, aligners are worn 22-24 hours per day, and are removed while eating and flossing/brushing, so there is very little interference in your daily life.
Are they comfortable?
While there is usually minor discomfort with each new set of aligners, they are much more comfortable than traditional braces because they are smooth and can be removed while eating. With each new set of aligners, there is pressure on the teeth, which will subside as the days progress. Speech may be affected by aligner wear during the beginning of treatment, but this is typically brief and temporary.
Does it work?
Yes! Invisalign® can be just as effective as traditional braces in many cases, and because they are more comfortable and nearly invisible, compliance is sometimes improved. This is important in treatment outcomes.
Am I a candidate?
Invisalign® is effective for most of the common cases of tooth straightening. In our office, we limit our treatment to minor tooth movement. Many of these patients opt for treatment because their teeth have moved after having had traditional braces as children or as adults. Patients requiring more advanced treatment are referred to an orthodontist.
How do I get started?
We start by discussing what you’d like to change about your smile and/or your bite. If we feel we can achieve your goals with Invisalign®, we send photos, x-rays, and impressions of our teeth to Align Technologies. We plan your treatment with them, and they magically create your aligners (it’s a pretty amazing process!). You’ll see us about every six weeks, receiving three sets of aligners at each appointment. When your treatment is completed, we make retainers to wear at night, and you get to enjoy your great smile!
