What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Patients tend to prefer Invisalign over other orthodontic treatment options because Invisalign aligners are:
- Virtually invisible on the teeth
- Comfortable to wear for many hours
- Completely removable; no food restrictions
- Quick and effective at straightening teeth
How long will my treatment plan be?
Patients can often achieve a straighter smile with Invisalign in an average of 12 to 18 months. During your consultation, we will examine your smile and provide you with an estimate for when your treatment will likely be complete. Patients are advised to wear their clear aligners every day for approximately 20 to 22 hours to ensure that each aligner has an adequate amount of time to make the necessary adjustments. Once your teeth are perfectly straight, we will create a custom retainer for you to wear at night to keep your smile aligned.
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign used to only be for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, but as clear aligner technology has become more advanced, Invisalign can now be used to treat a much wider variety of orthodontic issues. Once we’ve determined that Invisalign can be used to straighten your smile, our team will ask you questions about your preferences and lifestyle. Patients who pursue clear aligner therapy should be able to fully commit to wearing their clear aligners frequently enough, otherwise, it can cause major setbacks in their treatment plans.Contact Us
