All You Want to Know About Invisalign


Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you have regrets about not seeking orthodontic treatment when you were younger? If you have been considering braces, but are too embarrassed to have a mouth full of metal, it is time to consider how Invisalign can help. Invisalign Clear Braces is a nearly invisible form of orthodontic treatment which can help improve the alignment of your smile, much like traditional braces, but without the need for conspicuous metal braces.

Will Invisalign Fix My Bite Issues?

Yes; Invisalign can improve a number of teeth alignment issues, such as over or under bites, or spacing problems between your teeth.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign treatment works using a series of clear aligner trays, custom-made to slowly shift your teeth into better alignment. The trays themselves are made of BPA-free plastic.

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?

Invisalign treatment is designed to gradually shift your teeth into proper placement. The severity of your alignment issues will directly affect how long treatment takes, therefore making it very difficult to give a timeframe without consultation.

Will Invisalign Hurt?

No. You may experience some discomfort as your teeth shift, particularly in the beginning, as you adjust to the trays. But the Invisalign trays are designed to be less irritating and painful than traditional braces. One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign treatment is that the trays can be removed for eating. Most patients will need to wear the trays 20 to 22 hours to maximize their effectiveness, but that means you can enjoy meals without having to wear the trays!

Will People Know I’m Wearing Braces?

No. Most people will not notice your Invisalign trays, as they are made of clear plastic and designed to be almost unidentifiable. After a brief adjustment period you should be able to talk normally and without irritation, making it almost impossible for anyone to detect them.
