How Does it Work?Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear aligners that you will change about every two weeks. Each aligner is designed to gradually shift your teeth into their proper position. These calculated shifts are designed specifically by your dentist and the Invisalign labs. The amount of aligners and time needed for each varies depending on the individual’s needs.
Who is Best Suited for Invisalign?It is best suited for adults and older teens whose mouths have stopped developing and growing. Young teens and children may not be the best candidates for clear braces systems, depending on their individual development. Patients whose teeth need significant realignment may also need more complicated treatment or traditional braces. A consultation with your dentist will determine which option is best for you.
Why Invisalign over Metal Braces?Invisalign is hardly noticeable when compared to traditional metal braces. Most patients want straighter teeth or to close unsightly gaps, but don’t want the look of metal braces. In addition to Invisaling’s look and feel, oral health can also be a deciding factor. This system allows for the trays to be removed for things like brushing and flossing. It promotes better overall oral health than traditional braces. Patients are also less likely to cut their mouths during physical activities while using this system’s trays. The metal from traditional braces has been known to leave cuts and scrapes in the mouths of patients. However, the clear plastic aligners from this system are void of any sharp edges. This leaves the patient less likely to receive any abrasions caused by the trays.
