With Invisalign® there is no need for the brackets or wires and any of the hassles of metal braces. This is perfect for people who want to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing they are wearing any aligners!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a new form of teeth straightening option against traditional braces. Invisalign uses several comfortable, almost invisible aligners made of plastic to straighten your teeth. The aligners are removable, which means there are no restrictions on the foods you eat and drink, and it also reduces the hygienic issues that come with braces that limit flossing and brushing.
Invisalign is typically less visible and is more comfortable than braces, and it requires fewer appointments. Invisalign is constructed from a high-quality, patent-pending, and flexible plastic SmartTrack developed especially for Invisalign. Utilizing these plastic aligners is generally regarded as less uncomfortable than braces, resulting in mouth abrasions because of the wires and brackets.
Since Invisalign doesn’t have wires, you’ll have to go at a lower risk of needing adjustments which will cut down on time.As Invisalign is virtually undetectable, It’s an excellent choice for everyone, both teens and adults alike, seeking ways to enhance their bites, smiles, or teeth. It is also a perfect option for situations where braces may be too costly or even unwearable.

Types of Invisalign:
There are three different types of Invisalign that are explained below:
For less complicated alignment issues, Invisalign Lite uses a fixed number of aligners that can correct minor hindrances toward a better smile. It is ideal for patients who require the position of their teeth straightened and adjusted before cosmetic surgery, whether that be bridges, veneers, or crowns. Invisalign is a fantastic option to improve the aesthetics of the treatment.
The most recent version of the Invisalign services solutions consists of a generally shorter treatment period than the conventional Invisalign course. It was designed for people who require minor dental adjustments. It can be used to treat minor cases of overcrowding or maybe the one tooth that is always unattractive in photographs. If there was previously orthodontic treatment and the relapses have been minimal, Invisalign for adult may be a viable solution.
Teenagers typically experience an era of rapid and shifting changes as they grow. Invisalign for teens were designed to address these issues by offering a variety of specific features.

How does Invisalign® work?
We start with a dental consultation and we do a precise digital scan which will allow us to provide you with the custom aligners. Once your digital scan is complete, the aligners are made from a state-of-the art printing process. For best results we will ask you to wear your Invisalign® clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove them if you want to drink coffee, eat your meal or brush your teeth!
If you are a parent, the Invisalign® aligners will have a blue indicator that will tell you how compliant your teenagers are. You will be asked to wear your aligner sets for one to two weeks and we will check in on each patient every 2 to 3 months to make sure everything is going smoothly and we are seeing results! Typically, the average patient will need Invisalign® for 12 to 18 months but you will start to see results very early.
