What Invisalign Can Do

Invisalign aligners were originally developed with adults in mind, although they have helped millions of teenagers as well. While most people want their teeth to be straight, many people (particularly adults) are not willing to wear braces in personal or professional situations.

Invisalign addresses that concern by providing you with a discreet alternative to brackets and wires. By using clear plastic aligners, you can complete your orthodontic care without calling attention to it.

The aligners can and have been used to correct a number of issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

If you have one or more of these, Invisalign could be an excellent option for you. When you are finished (in as little as 12 months), you can have the smile you want to see when you look in the mirror. This can help when you are meeting someone in person or via video call or posting a selfie to your social media.

How It Works

Millions of people have successfully used Invisalign aligners to reshape their smiles. Here’s how it works.

First, we make a digital impression of your teeth. (No biting down on a goo-filled tray.) Using computer software, a series of aligners are custom-made for your teeth. Each aligner is meant to be worn for a few weeks at a time, then replaced with the next one in the series.

They should be worn for 22 hours per day. This means you can remove your aligners prior to eating and replace them after brushing your teeth. (Be sure to clean the aligners, too.) As a result, you can continue eating the food that you want throughout your treatment.

After you finish with your last aligner, you will wear a retainer like you would for any orthodontic treatment to keep your teeth from relapsing or moving back toward their original positions.

Because the aligners are clear and custom-made for your teeth, you may be surprised how few people realize you are wearing them. Knowing this, you can feel comfortable using them at work and in social situations.
