How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that reposition your teeth over time. About every two weeks, you will put in a new aligner, slowly moving your teeth into their desired alignment.
During your initial consult, your mouth, teeth, and face will be comprehensively examined. We use X-rays, impressions, and software to determine how much your teeth need to be moved. Your aligners will first be created in a 3D computer model before being created in a lab in consultation with your dentist.
You will wear your aligner for approximately 22 hours per day. This means you are able to freely remove your aligners to eat and clean whenever you want to. Be sure to rinse your aligner before you place it in your mouth and clean it every day to prevent plaque buildup.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
The total length of treatment is dependent on each patient and the degree of realignment needed. In general, each aligner is worn for two weeks before your teeth have shifted enough to move onto the next one. Treatment will take approximately 12 to 18 months, after which we will fit you with a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position.
During your consultation, your dentist will provide you with an estimate of how long treatment will take.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign over Metal Braces?
Invisalign has a variety of benefits over metal braces. Invisalign is nearly invisible in your mouth, whereas traditional braces leave you with metal brackets and wires on your teeth. With metal braces, there is always a concern that you will damage them, especially during sports. With Invisalign, you do not have to worry about this.
Invisalign aligners can be removed when needed. This means that you can eat, brush and floss your teeth as normal, unlike with metal braces. Overall, Invisalign will disrupt your life significantly less than metal braces. Contact us today to ask about straightening your smile with Invisalign.

The total costs for Invisalign treatment will be patient dependent. Your dentist will discuss cost factors with you and be able to provide a quote after consultation. Feel free to ask us about the easy finance options that we have available to help you get Invisalign treatment when you need it.
