How Does Invisalign Straighten Crooked Teeth?

Are you looking for options to straighten crooked teeth without dealing with the hassle of metal braces? If so, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. The world’s most advanced clear aligner system, proudly offered by your trusted team at Highlight Family Dentistry, will gently and discreetly deliver your ideal smile. Be prepared to be amazed at the stunning results!

Invisalign – An Overview

Invisalign by Align Technology is a clear aligner system designed to gradually straighten your smile using a series of custom-made, clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. Your virtually invisible alternative to braces will apply precise force at the right place at the right time, gently shifting your teeth into alignment.

Aside from straightening crooked teeth, Invisalign can correct a range of mild to complex orthodontic concerns, including gaps between teeth or a crowded mouth, as well as problems with the bite, including overbites, underbites, cross bites, and overbites. Whatever your orthodontic needs are, Invisalign likely has the solution for you.

How Does the Invisalign Process Work?

We will start by evaluating your unique needs and demonstrate what Invisalign can do for you. We will take 3D images of your mouth using our state-of-the-art intraoral scanner to map out your custom treatment plan, including the precise movements of your teeth and the expected length of treatment. An Invisalign lab will use that information to create your custom aligner trays.

Once your aligners are ready, you will return to our office. We will demonstrate how to use them and care for them. You will need to wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results. You will swap one set of aligners about every two weeks for the next in the series, following your custom treatment plan.

As you progress through your aligners, you will see your teeth gradually shift into their proper position. After achieving the smile of your dreams, you will need to wear retainers so your teeth do not move back out of alignment.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment offers numerous benefits. The virtually invisible aligners will straighten your teeth and deliver your ideal smile without anyone knowing. Unlike traditional braces, your aligners are completely removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. That means you will not have to deal with food getting stuck in your braces or worry about brushing around brackets and wires.

Your clear aligners are custom-made to fit your smile, offering a more comfortable alternative to braces. Moreover, aligner trays are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic material, so there is no risk of cutting or irritating your lips and cheeks as with metal braces with their brackets and wires.

Invisalign comes with more than 20 years of clinical research and over 700 patents. The proprietary SmartForce features and multilayer SmartTrack material will deliver the smile of your dreams up to 50 percent faster than traditional braces!
