The Clear Alternative to Braces
This clear alternative to braces is what we like to think of as a virtually invisible solution to crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth, as well as gaps between teeth and overbite.
Invisalign aligners, as the name suggests, are invisible— unlike their predecessors, metal braces, which have been used to straighten the teeth of children and adolescents, often much to their distress, for generations. It is telling that the first version of braces in orthodontics was called the “wire crib,” which says a lot about their appearance and how they felt in the mouth. Invisalign aligners are actually quite comfortable and also removable for several hours at the time, which makes the process of moving teeth into alignment a much more agreeable process to endure than with braces.
And, with the advent of Invisalign, aligning your teeth is not just for kids anymore. It is great for both adults and teens, and the total duration of treatment may be as few as 10 weeks or up to half the treatment time required by braces and modern variations thereof, including lingual braces behind the teeth.
What are some of the other advantages of Invisalign and how does it work for you?
Invisalign is unique to you: That means they are custom-made for your teeth, fitting snugly over your teeth, engineered to exert just the right amount of pressure in the right place at the right time.
Invisalign shifts your teeth slightly, surely and painlessly a step at a time: Invisalign works with graduated changes to another set of invisible aligners, which typically occurs on a weekly basis. This means that each misaligned tooth moves steadily and gradually toward its ultimate position as determined by a customized treatment plan we have mapped out just for you. Each set of aligners moves the teeth both horizontally and vertically into place, and it is even possible to rotate them with this procedure.
Invisalign promises proven results: The bottom line is that we know that Invisalign works and that it is effective in a wide variety of cases. Moving teeth into their desired places should not be done in one hard squeeze of one set of braces tightened into position. Using multiple sets of aligners on a progressive basis, as is the case with Invisalign, means changing pressures as needed with additional applications through the graduated sets of aligners.
