How does Invisalign work?
Through a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners, Invisalign’s state-of-the-art technology and advanced materials gently move your teeth into their desired position. The Invisalign system applies slight pressure to your teeth so they gradually and easily move into place over time.
Based on the dental issues you want to improve, you wear each set of customized aligners for about two weeks at a time. You wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day, taking them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. Invisalign is barely visible, too, so nobody will even notice when you’re wearing them.
What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?
The benefits and advantages of using the Invisalign system to straighten your teeth over traditional braces are numerous, including:
- Comfortable to wear
- Easy to brush your teeth
- No metal brackets or wires, just smooth, plastic aligner trays
- Customized to your individual needs and carefully fitted to your teeth
- Removable for special occasions, eating, and brushing
- Virtually invisible
- Predictable outcomes
- No emergency visits to the orthodontist to repair broken wires
- Straighten teeth up to 50% faster than metal braces
- Enjoy all your favorite foods without worry
For many people, just 12-18 months of wearing Invisalign delivers the results you desire for straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile. For some, the treatment takes even less time. During your consultation, Dr. Ocharoen evaluates your mouth and gives you an estimate of how long it will take for Invisalign to straighten your teeth. As long as you commit to wearing your aligners 20-22 hours each day, your teeth will move as predicted.
What types of orthodontic issues does Invisalign correct?
Invisalign clear aligners correct the most common orthodontic issues, including:
- Underbites and overbites
- Crooked teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bites
Because Invisalign improves nearly all common orthodontic concerns, from simple to complex, it’s an ideal alternative for teens and adults who don’t want to endure a mouth full of metal.
