Orthodontic treatment can correct misalignment and improve your overall oral health. However, orthodontic treatment doesn’t always mean metal braces. We can provide a nearly invisible alternative using clear aligners. Should you try Invisalign® to enjoy a straighter and more beautiful smile?

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

Question: Who makes a good candidate for clear aligners?

Answer: We will look at the cause and severity of your misalignment to see if clear aligners are the best option for your smile. Clear aligners can help patients with minor and more severe misalignment, as well as teens and adults. Correcting misalignment can help you maintain a healthier smile, and one you’ll be eager to show the world!

Question: How do we create the custom-made aligners?

Answer: We will take detailed impressions of your smile, which will be used by experts at an Invisalign lab to create a series of aligners. Once complete, you will begin wearing a set for 20 to 23 hours a day, upgrading to a new set about once every two weeks. Over the course of a year to 18 months, depending on the severity of your misalignment, your smile will be corrected.

Question: What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Answer: First, the orthodontics are clear and barely noticeable when worn. In addition, they are custom-made and comfortable to wear, helping patients avoid the gum and cheek irritation often encountered with metal braces. Treatment is often shorter and requires fewer office visits than traditional metal orthodontics. You can also remove them before meals, which allows you to eat as you did prior to treatment and won’t need to avoid hard or chewy foods. Removable aligners will also make brushing and flossing easier, helping you maintain a healthy smile during treatment.
