Invisalign® Invisalign is an invisible method to straighten teeth without the use of metallic orthodontic braces. It has become a very popular alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign® differs from traditional braces in that the aligning trays are fully removable. This means that more commitment is required from the patient. This is not usually a problem since the trays are comfortable and nearly invisible.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays. The dentist changes the trays every several weeks to fit the new tooth configuration.Once you have been approved for Invisalign aligners, you will begin the treatment process.
Is Invisalign® treatment appropriate for you? Invisalign treatment is clinically proven to be effective for a broad range of teeth straightening cases.Invisalign provides you with a free “Smile Assessment” on their web page, whether you are a teenager or an adult.
How long does Invisalign® take? How much does it cost? Both the duration and cost of treatment generally depend on the number of aligners needed. Since each aligner is worn for two weeks, the treatment time can range from several months to over one year.
Is treatment painful? There are no painful dental procedures needed for Invisalign; however, some patients have reported soreness after the first few days. This should be expected because your teeth are being forced into a different position. The pressure will decrease soon when you use your aligner diligently.
