What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cutting-edge system of orthodontic aligners for adults and teens. Each series of aligners moves your teeth closer and closer into the desired final position.

While the total length of treatment varies from patient to patient, most patients can expect their treatment to last from 9-18 months.

What complications can Invisalign be used to correct?

Invisalign® is designed to correct the following aesthetic and functional issues:

  • Overcrowding of the teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Relapse after traditional braces have been removed

The doctor will determine whether Invisalign is appropriate for you, or if another option would be better suited to your needs.

What are the benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces?

Invisalign:

Adults especially tend to turn to Invisalign over traditional braces as wearing braces can be undesirable in their careers and social lives. Invisalign aligners are a virtually invisible option for correcting a misaligned smile. Most adults complete their treatment in less than a year!
  • They can be removed to eat or clean your teeth
  • You can continue your day-to-day activities while still straightening your teeth
  • The aligners are clear, so you don’t have to hide your smile
  • Invisalign appointments work with your schedule
  • Is Invisalign suitable for teenagers?
  • Invisalign’s custom aligners can be made to fit smaller mouths. Invisalign Teen works with a series of clear aligners that are made of smooth, clear plastic and are virtually invisible. And of course, Invisalign Teen offers the same benefits as Invisalign for adults.
With invisible aligners, even your closest friends may not even notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment

Traditional Braces:

Some orthodontic patients today prefer traditional metallic braces. Traditional braces are a time-tested treatment for achieving a perfectly-straight smile – they work by utilizing brackets placed onto the teeth, which are then gradually tightened to move your teeth into the desired final position. Still a popular orthodontic option, traditional braces are a fantastic option for those looking for orthodontic treatment. In addition, you may think that braces are just for teens. In fact, many of today’s braces patients are adults! However, adult patients understandably so may feel uncomfortable in professional and social settings wearing metallic braces, which is why many adult patients opt for invisible aligners.

Braces can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Braces also eliminate problems you may have with eating, speaking properly, or with keeping your teeth clean. With advancements in dental technology, traditional braces are now sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable.

Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw. While metal braces brackets are still the most common, there are various other treatment options available. Our doctors can help you decide which method will suit your wants and needs best. If it’s decided you need a service we don’t offer, we’ll make sure you get a referral to the right professional to help you.
