What Are Invisalign Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are an innovative orthodontic approach used in our office to align and straighten your teeth. These custom-made aligners apply gradual pressure on your teeth, guiding them into their desired positions. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before progressing to the next set. Unlike traditional braces with metal components, invisible braces are crafted from clear, medical-grade plastic, ensuring a discreet appearance during treatment.

Clear aligners offer many benefits for those undergoing orthodontic treatment. Benefits include their removability, allowing you to eat and drink without restrictions; their clear design, making them virtually invisible for those wanting a more aesthetic orthodontic option; and their convenience, as Invisalign aligners typically require fewer office visits than traditional braces.

What Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Treat?

Our experienced team provides the care you need to achieve your desired smile with invisible braces. While we also offer traditional braces, we recognize the effectiveness of Invisalign aligners for addressing mild to moderate dental conditions. If you qualify for Invisalign aligners, they can help resolve various dental issues, including:

  • Crooked Teeth: Occurs when there is insufficient jaw space for proper alignment, resulting in teeth becoming cramped, overlapped, or twisted.
  • Overbites: When the upper teeth extend over the lower teeth, potentially causing the upper teeth to hang over the lower ones.
  • Open Bites: Arise when the front and bottom teeth slant outward, preventing the front teeth from touching when the mouth is closed.
  • Crossbites: Involve misaligned jaws leading to malocclusion, where the teeth fail to align correctly when biting.
  • Underbites: Develop when the lower front teeth protrude over the upper front teeth, creating an overlap of the lower teeth over the upper ones.
  • Unwanted Gaps: Gaps are visible spaces between teeth that can impact the aesthetics and functionality of your smile.

Our Clear Aligner Process

We will begin your Invisalign treatment with a consultation where our dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your treatment goals. If we find you unsuitable for Invisalign aligners, our office has the expertise to treat your alignment with traditional braces. If you are found to be a candidate for Invisalign aligners, our dentist will then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a trusted lab to create your aligners. Once we receive your aligners back, you will return to our office to pick them up and receive instructions on proper use.

You will receive numerous aligners at a time and return to our office every 6-8 weeks during treatment to pick up the next sets and for our dentist to assess your alignment progress. You should wear your aligners for 22 hours daily, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
