Clear aligner treatments like Invisalign are game changers in orthodontics. As a metal-free alternative to traditional braces, they are flexible, discreet, and customized based on the severity of your dental problem. While metal brackets and wires strive to achieve the same goal – a straighter smile – Invisalign does it without bringing attention to your mouth.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without the use of metal wires and brackets. You are required to wear the custom-made aligners 20-22 hours a day so that appropriate pressure is continuously placed on your teeth, ensuring that they move in the right direction. After 1-2 weeks, the trays are swapped out for a new set. During treatment, you are required to remove your trays to eat, drink, and clean your aligners, and you’ll need to keep your follow-up appointments with our team to ensure everything is progressing smoothly.

The Benefits of Invisalign

When you sit down to compare the benefits of Invisalign to those of traditional braces, you’ll find it hard to overlook the advantages you can expect to receive with clear aligners. These can include:

  • A more discreet way to pursue orthodontic treatment because there are no metal brackets and wires for others to see.
  • A less irritating form of treatment, as the smooth plastic does not rub against your cheeks, lips, gums, or tongue like metal braces.
  • They are easier to clean than traditional brackets and wires. You must remove them to clean your teeth and your trays, ensuring bacteria are not transferred between the two.
  • Invisalign can produce faster results (on average) than regular braces. The average timeframe for Invisalign is 12-18 months, while traditional braces can take 2-3 years.
