How Invisalign Works

Invisalign is well-known for its see-through aligners, but how exactly do they work? In short, you’ll be given a series of trays, and you’ll wear each one for 7-14 days (the exact time will depend on your specific treatment). Each one is designed to move your teeth a step closer to their properly aligned positions, so it won’t take long for you to begin seeing progress.

Important note: since the aligners only work while you’re wearing them, you’ll be asked to keep them on for 20-22 hours a day. If you consistently are unable to meet that goal, then you may fall off-track with your treatment plan, necessitating more aligners.

Indications for Invisalign

Fortunately, Invisalign’s clear aligners aren’t just aesthetically pleasing; they also can effectively address crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and bite problems. To learn more about each and how Invisalign can help, read on:

Crowded Teeth

If your teeth overlap, then you may feel self-conscious about your smile. However, this orthodontic issue can also negatively impact the health of your smile by trapping food particles and plaque in the unique crevices between your teeth. The good news is that your clear aligners can apply just enough pressure to gently guide your teeth into their properly aligned positions.

Gaps Between Teeth

Spaced-out teeth are a signature look for some people, but if you are unhappy with the gaps in your smile, then talk to us about Invisalign. With the comfortable, virtually undetectable trays, we can gradually close the spaces between your teeth, revealing a straight, balanced, and even more beautiful smile.

Bite Alignment

If your bite is uneven, you can have trouble chewing properly. It’s also common for patients with overbites, underbites, and the like to chronically grind or clench their teeth. Fortunately, Invisalign may be the solution you’ve been looking for!
