How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses a custom-made series of clear plastic aligning trays to gradually straighten your teeth. The aligners are practically invisible when worn on your smile, and they can be easily removed whenever you need to eat or brush. All you’ll have to do is wear each tray in the series provided to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Typically, Dr. Osseiran recommends that each aligner should be worn around 2 weeks, for 20 to 22 hours a day. Once your treatment is finished, he will provide you with a clear retainer to ensure the alignment of your teeth is permanent.

Dr. Osseiran will take special images and impressions of your teeth to develop a treatment plan for your specific smile. Once this is completed, he will fabricate your series of aligners based on the current position of your teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

The biggest advantage that Invisalign aligners have is their appearance. This treatment offers the ability to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. This not only provides beautiful results, but it gives you confidence during treatment to flash your grin without being self-conscious.

Another reason why Invisalign is being chosen over traditional braces is the comfort. These aligners are made with smooth plastic, which fits comfortably around your teeth. That means there’s no chance of the inside of your cheek or lip getting caught or cut on brackets and wires. An added benefit is that they’re completely removeable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your orthodontics.

Additionally, Invisalign treatment takes a shorter amount of time to complete than traditional braces. On average, the treatment time takes between 10 and 18 months, and it requires fewer dental visits for adjustments. Traditional braces typically require monthly adjustments to keep your alignment on track.

Who Should Consider Invisalign?

Candidates for Invisalign clear braces are typically those with mild to moderate misalignment. Patients for Invisalign tend to be in their adult years or older teens because they have a commitment to wearing their aligning trays as instructed. The best way to know if you’re a candidate for Invisalign is to come visit us at Just for Your Smile. Dr. Osseiran will carefully examine your grin to see if Invisalign is right for you.
