How does Invisalign® straighten my teeth?
Invisalign® uses clear, custom-made aligners that are to be worn at least 20 hours a day. Each set of aligners are worn for approximately two weeks and then switched out for a new set. This method continues until the desired results have been reached. Each set of aligners is responsible for applying a slight amount of pressure against your teeth, slowly bringing them into alignment. So, it works similarly to traditional braces, but with clear aligners instead of brackets and wires.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Although traditional braces are effective, some patients simply prefer the added convenience and benefits of clear aligners for their orthodontic therapy.
Our patients appreciate the benefits of Invisalign® that traditional braces simply cannot offer, including:
- No metal poking cheeks and gums
- No sore spots
- No food getting trapped in brackets
- No limited diet, eat what you want
- Faster results
How fast can I get results with Invisalign®?
The length of treatment is typically less than with traditional braces. With Invisalign®, treatment ranges from 12 to 18 months, whereas traditional braces may take as long as five years to achieve desired results. While the length of treatment will vary, depending on the needs of each patient, results can be achieved in less time than it takes with traditional braces. But, the length of treatment isn’t the best part. The best part about Invisalign® is that you can straighten your teeth without anyone ever noticing!
Is Invisalign® right for me?
A consultation is the first step when considering Invisalign® treatment. We will develop a personalized treatment plan that outlines the length of treatment, how many aligners you will need, and cost. We will also need to take impressions and digital scans of your mouth to use for fabricating your custom aligners. While Invisalign® offers many benefits over traditional metal braces, it isn’t the best choice for everyone. Patients with severe tooth misalignment or jaw alignment issues, such as temporomandibular joint disorder, may not be suitable candidates for clear aligner therapy. The best way to know if you are a candidate is to receive a consultation with us at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry. We can assess your oral health, and let you share your desires for an improved smile, to determine if this method of orthodontics is right for you.
