Invisalign is a great alternative to braces that allows patients to get a straighter smile while wearing clear, comfortable and removable aligners. SmileOn patients often have many questions about Invisalign, so here are some answers!
HOW DO THE ALIGNERS WORK?
Every patient is given a series of custom-made aligners that are perfectly calibrated and fitted to move their teeth to precise locations. Each set is worn for two week, during which time your teeth will gently move a bit. The next set will move your teeth a bit more, and so on.
IS INVISALIGN AS EFFECTIVE AS STANDARD METAL BRACES?
Invisalign is as effective for many cases, but it may not be ideal for every patient. Some malocclusions are more complicated, and may require use of standard braces. The only way to know for sure if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule an appointment with an orthodontist.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES TO USING INVISALIGN?
There are numerous benefits to Invisalign. First, the aligners are comfortable, and won’t irritate the insides of yoru mouth as brackets and wires might. The aligners are also virtually invisible, meaning you can straighten your smile without drawing attention to it. The aligners are also removable, making it easier to brush and floss during treatment, and you don’t have to alter your diet.
