Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

Published on May 29th, 2019

Most of us dislike braces. The thought of having metal on every tooth in your mouth paired with the constant removal of leftover food is something we dread. That’s where Invisalign comes in. As Invisalign becomes increasingly popular and a more relevant cosmetic dentist technique, it is important to learn more about it before you decide it’s right for you.

 

How Does Invisalign Work?

After you consult with your doctor and receive a personalized treatment plan, we make your Invisalign aligners. Every two weeks, you receive a new tray. As you wear the customized trays, your teeth are gradually shifted into place. Each tray you receive is different, in that each time you use a new one, your teeth become slightly straighter than the previous tray wear. Teeth can move up to 0.25 mm per tray. The biggest positive to Invisalign versus braces is the invisibility. This treatment is perfect for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth in a more discreet way than braces.

 

Cool Facts About Invisalign

All Invisalign treatments are different. The technology allows your dentist to tune each tooth’s movement in your mouth. Everyone’s smile is different. Therefore, you will receive custom-made aligners that work for your specific treatment.

 

Did you know that Invisalign removable aligners are made from a special medical-grade thermoplastic? SmartTrack® is a patented material and FDA-approved. This isn’t like any other regular plastic—it contains no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

 

With Invisalign, you are able to spend less time at the dentist. Instead of having your braces’ wires adjusted, you will only have to see your dentist every six to eight weeks, allowing for monitored progress.
