Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners designed specifically for each patient. At Hulen Smiles, Implant and Cosmetic Dentist, we use these BPA-free plastic aligners to realign teeth discreetly and give our patients beautifully straight smiles.
As the treatment progresses, patients wear each set of aligners for two weeks and then switch to a new pair when they come in for their next checkup. Patients can remove the aligners when eating, drinking, or brushing their teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign system is a series of custom-made, clear aligners that comfortably fit your teeth and gradually shift them into place. Each aligner has a smooth design that’s virtually invisible when worn. Unlike traditional braces requiring brackets and wires to be attached to teeth, Invisalign lets you continue your everyday activities without worrying about uncomfortable headgear or painful metal irritating your mouth.
You will receive a new set of aligners every one to two weeks until your treatment is complete. The time you will need to wear each set of aligners will vary depending on your case, but most patients achieve outstanding results within six to eighteen months.
How Do I Know if Invisalign Is Right for Me?
Getting straighter teeth has never been easier with Invisalign! You can rely on this transparent alignment tray system to provide a subtle and discreet way to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Virtually invisible, these aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks to gradually and gently straighten your teeth. You will receive a new set of aligners every six weeks to continue your treatment until you reach your ideal smile. The best part is that you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth, so there are no dietary restrictions.
Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than conventional metal braces, so you can wear them without worrying about irritation or discomfort in your mouth. They are also removable, so you can take them out whenever you need to attend a special event or meeting and never have to worry about your appearance. Finally, they are made from smooth plastic rather than sharp metal brackets, so you do not have to worry about mouth abrasions during treatment.
Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic and are designed to fit your teeth perfectly. Therefore, they are less likely to cause abrasions or scratches than metal brackets.
