Everything You Need To Know About Invisalign Treatment

Posted by Broadmoor Dental on Sep 23 2022, 04:51 AM

Invisalign is a series of custom-made removable clear aligners or trays to fit over your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks, and then you switch to the next stage in the series. As you switch out your aligners, your teeth will gradually move.

Invisalign is an excellent option if you prefer not to wear braces, but you also don’t want to wait years for straight teeth. At Broadmoor Dental, the average treatment time to straighten teeth with Invisalign is 12-18 months. However, treatment time varies from patient to patient, so talk to your dentist about what you can expect.

How Does Invisalign Works?

Invisalign aligners are custom-made specifically for your teeth. The aligners use a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign works similarly to braces as both work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them gradually. While braces use brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners.

These aligners are changed every two weeks, moving your teeth a little at a time. Each aligner is a little different, moving the teeth into slightly different positions, so the treatment can gradually shift the teeth into their final alignment.

The aligners are worn for 20 to 22 hours daily, and patients only remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. 

The Benefits of Invisalign

Traditional braces are a popular treatment because they’re very effective at straightening teeth. Invisalign is a great alternative and is gaining popularity with adults and teenagers alike. Here are some of the benefits of choosing Invisalign:

  • Invisalign is the right choice for many of our patients because it offers convenience, comfort, and aesthetics. Treatment with Invisalign is discreet, so no one has to know you’re straightening your teeth. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can enjoy both your favorite meals and your oral hygiene routine.
  • Invisalign can also offer superior comfort. The smooth plastic material means the aligners won’t irritate your cheeks and gums, and the smooth edges won’t poke or scrape your lips and cheeks. Invisalign aligners are also custom-crafted to fit your teeth, so they won’t slip or slide around during treatment.
  • Invisalign is also beneficial because the aligners are removable. This means that you don’t have to worry about food restrictions or limitations. You can remove your aligners to eat and drink, brush and floss, and for special occasions.
