How Invisalign Works

Traditional braces move the teeth into their desired position by fusing brackets onto the surfaces of each tooth and using a wire to add pressure onto certain parts of your smile. Meanwhile, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to shift your pearly whites into their proper position. Each set is worn for at least 22 hours a day for a predetermined amount of time, usually about two weeks. Throughout your treatment, you’ll visit our office regularly for checkups to ensure everything is moving correctly.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign has become an incredibly popular solution in recent years because it can address multiple orthodontic issues. Some of those are:

Crowded Teeth

Overcrowding is one of the most common concerns that patients have. Not only can it negatively impact the look of your smile, but it can make it difficult to stay on top of your oral hygiene. Fortunately, Invisalign clear aligners can guide your teeth into their properly aligned positions.

Gaps Between Teeth

Having gaps in your smile doesn’t just look unsightly. It can increase your risk of certain oral health issues, like decay and gum disease, because food particles can easily become trapped in these spaces. Invisalign solves the problem by gradually closing these gaps.

Bite Alignment

Underbites, overbites, and crossbites are different types of bite issues. If they’re not addressed, they can lead to premature wear, chronic teeth grinding, and other complications. The good news is that Invisalign is more than capable of fixing bite problems!
