Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that shift your teeth into proper alignment. The number of aligners in your series depends on the condition of your alignment, but most people can straighten their teeth with 20-30 sets of aligners.
You wear your aligners every day for as long as possible (at least 22 hours), and move on to the next set in your series every two weeks. Each set of aligners in your series is designed to push your teeth a little bit closer to alignment than the previous set, gradually shifting your teeth to their desired position.
By the time you finish wearing each set of aligners in your series, your teeth will have permanently shifted into a more ideal alignment.
Invisalign is an excellent solution for treating a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including:
Ultimately, Invisalign is effective at treating many of the same conditions as traditional metal braces, and it does so with a much more refined and enjoyable system.
Invisalign is a revolutionary system of orthodontics that has a number of advantages over braces, including:
The smooth and flexible plastic of your aligners is much more comfortable in your mouth than the harsh metal wires and brackets of traditional braces.
Your aligners are removable, so you can take them out whenever you eat, brush, and floss. This saves you from having to change your diet during treatment and from having to invest in special tools to keep your teeth clean.
Unlike the very noticeable metal in traditional braces, Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them. This enables you to straighten your teeth without having to worry about your appearance.
Invisalign can usually straighten your smile in less time than braces. Most people only need 12-18 months to get a beautifully aligned smile with Invisalign.
When you straighten your teeth with traditional metal braces, you end up spending a lot of time at your dentist’s or orthodontist’s office. With Invisalign, you only have to check in with Dr. Sigmon once a month, and you spend less time at the office during your appointments because there’s no need to make adjustments.
