How Does Invisalign Work?
If Invisalign is right for you, we’ll create a specialized treatment plan to suit your mouth and your needs. Then, we’ll create a special mold of your teeth, so that your aligners will fit your teeth perfectly. Every two weeks, you’ll switch to a new aligner, as each aligner moves your teeth back just a little, preparing them for the next stage of treatment. You’ll generally receive 2-3 aligners at a time, meaning that you’ll only have to come in to our offices every 4-6 weeks or so to receive a checkup and pick up your new aligners.
Invisalign is virtually invisible, meaning that you don’t have to feel embarrassed or awkward because of your braces. The aligners are also easily removable, meaning that you can easily clean or replace them. Unlike braces, which don’t allow you to eat certain types of food without causing a lot of problems, Invisalign allows you to eat whatever you feel like, since you simply remove the aligner before eating and replace it after you’re done. The removable aligner also means that you can brush and floss normally, making your mouth healthier as a whole. And since each aligner is only designed to last you for a couple weeks, lost or broken aligners are easily replaceable. And if you need a retainer after the process in complete, your last aligner can serve as a retainer for as long as you need it, giving you an invisible and comfortable retainer.
