What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a brand name of clear aligners used to orthodontically straighten teeth. The treatment consists of a set of aligners custom designed for each patient. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before graduating to the next one. Depending on the patient’s needs, final results could vary from 3 to 18 months. These clear aligners are ultra thin, which allow patients to straighten their teeth discreetly. This product is great for those who dislike the appearance of traditional braces and want to orthodontically straighten their teeth and correct their bite.

Who is an ideal candidate?

This product is recommended for teenagers and adults. It is most effective for those with mild to moderate teeth misalignment. For example, Invisalign corrects many dental issues which includes the following:

To achieve optimal results, the clear aligners are worn 23 hours a day, only to be removed for eating and drinking. Throughout treatment it is crucial to maintain excellent hygiene, brushing your teeth after every meal prior to placing the aligners back in.

Are clear aligners more expensive than traditional braces?

In general, Invisalign costs about the same as traditional braces. This is another reason why many patients prefer it. Nonetheless, your exam and consultation will include more detailed information regarding cost and treatment.

Are retainers required after treatment?

The short answer is YES. Teeth tend to move back to where “nature” originally designed them to be, this is due to to collagen fibers surrounding the ligaments of our teeth. This is especially true in orthodontics for adults. Therefore, patients need to wear a retainers to maintain their new smile.
