Invisalign clear braces are made using what is known as SmartTrack material. Created by Align Technologies, these clear, plastic aligners are custom-created to fit comfortably in your mouth and gently apply continuous pressure to keep your teeth shifting in the right direction. Depending on the severity of your initial case, you will receive a designated number of sets, which you will wear throughout treatment.
Invisalign is an extremely versatile orthodontic solution that can address issues of overcrowding, gapped teeth, and even misaligned bites (i.e. underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite). Their transparent look allows for increased subtly, allowing you to go on about your day without anyone noticing them! You can enjoy treatment with Invisalign without compromising your daily appearance.
On average, most patients see results in 12-18 months; however, this can vary from patient to patient. This is what makes Invisalign such an appealing option to self-conscious teenagers and adults. Unlike traditional metal braces that require you to undergo treatment for 2-3 years, you’ll achieve a healthier smile in less time with Invisalign.
While you will be required to wear your trays for at least 20-22 hours each day, you can remove them to eat, drink, and clean them. You will also be expected to keep regular dental appointments with our team to ensure everything is moving along smoothly.
When it comes to choosing Invisalign, you may be comparing the pros and cons of it and other orthodontic solutions. However, it is difficult to overlook the number of benefits that come with choosing this unique method of treatment, such as:
Knowing whether you are eligible for Invisalign is ultimately up to our team of qualified professionals. During your initial consultation, we will examine your smile and determine if your orthodontic problem can be easily treated with Invisalign clear aligners. Should you show signs of overcrowding, spaces between teeth, crooked teeth, or have a mild bite alignment issue, you will likely be recommended for Invisalign treatment.
