Invisalign® instills the help of several clear, plastic aligners that are custom to perfectly fit your smile. Often referred to as an invisible braces treatment, Invisalign® can discreetly correct and realign teeth back to their correct positions. Fortunately, Invisalign® does not require a lengthy duration of treatment.
Prior to beginning your Invisalign® treatment, your dentist will prepare by taking impressions and molds of your teeth. These results will be sent to a lab where a series of trays will be created. After wearing your initial aligner, you will trade out the aligners for new ones every few weeks. Wearing these trays for the majority of the day will help to apply constant pressure to your teeth and move them to their correct placement over time. It is recommended to wear the aligners for up to 22 hours a day.
One of the most appealing aspects of the Invisalign® treatment is the ability to easily remove the trays for eating and cleaning purposes. This allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods without having to worry about damaging the treatment. The ‘invisible’ aspect of Invisalign® draws people to this method. It allows for a discreet way to improve your smile.
