How Invisalign Works

Instead of using metal brackets and wires to move your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to slowly shift your teeth into their new locations. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving to the next set. Over time, your teeth will gradually move to their new, rightful locations. Unlike traditional braces, you don’t need to get anything tightened throughout your treatment, but you will still need to come to the practice from time to time to make sure everything is going according to plan.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign can correct a variety of different alignment issues. Here are some of the most common ones we encounter:

Crowded Teeth

For teeth that have become crowded and are overlapping, Invisalign is a great solution. Clear aligners apply gentle pressure to different parts of the teeth to shift them to a more aligned position. This helps to prevent problems, like tooth decay and gum disease, that are more common among people with overcrowded teeth.

Gaps Between Teeth

When teeth are too far apart, gaps become apparent. They also put you at higher risk for oral health issues and tooth damage due to food debris and plaque easily becoming trapped and more difficult to remove. Invisalign can move your teeth to be the perfect distance apart.

Bite Alignment

If your bite isn’t aligned correctly, you can develop problems, like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding). Invisalign is effective when it comes to correcting overbites, underbites, crossbites, and more.

The Benefits of Invisalign

If it’s determined that you make a good candidate for the procedure, here are some of the many benefits that you can expect to experience:

  • Comfort: No brackets and wires mean no soft tissue irritation. Occasional discomfort is normal, but it is short-lived and easy to manage. You can even start a new set of aligners before bed so you can sleep through the initial soreness.
  • Discreet: Clear aligners are practically Invisalign, so no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing them.
  • No Eating Restrictions: As long as you take your aligners out before eating and brush and floss before putting them back in, you can eat pretty much anything you’d like!
