Invisalign: A Clear Solution for Adults and Teens

If you are dissatisfied with the alignment of your teeth, there has never been a better time to undergo orthodontic treatment. For teens and adults, Invisalign offers the most advanced clear aligner system in the world -- and more than 4 million people have already benefitted from their clear braces. No other clear braces treatment is backed by so much data and experience. Keep reading to learn more about how it works, what it’s like to live with Invisalign, and whether or not clear braces are right for you.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign works using a series custom-made, clear plastic aligners that fit closely around your teeth. Each aligner is designed to place pressure on a different area of your bite, gradually moving your teeth horizontally and vertically with consistent pressure according to a treatment plan that is created by your dentist.

You will wear each Invisalign aligner for one to two weeks before advancing to the next in the series. The technology uses a multilayered SmartTrack® material for maximum comfort and effectiveness. Routine visits with your dentist every six weeks will help to ensure you are progressing through your treatment as planned.

When your Invisalign treatment is complete, you will need to wear clear retainers to keep your teeth in the proper alignment. The Vivera retainers are made of translucent materials which are as subtle as your Invisalign trays.

Benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

For people who are interested in clear braces, Invisalign offers a number of advantages compared to conventional metal brackets and wires. Some of the most significant benefits of Invisalign include…

Why Straight Teeth Matter

If you think getting braces is just about making your teeth look great, think again. Teeth that line up properly promote better oral and overall health. It can be difficult to brush and floss around crowded teeth, which significantly raises your risk of developing cavities or gum disease. Bite alignment issues can also affect your jaw health, leading to difficulty opening and closing your mouth to eat and speak. People who have a misaligned jaw are also more likely to grind their teeth at night.

Because your teeth and gums are closely linked to your overall wellbeing, getting braces could be the best thing you ever did for your health.

A Day In the Life with Invisalign

Living with Invisalign is a breeze once you get used to it. The plastic aligners are very comfortable, so you should not have any trouble wearing them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours each day. Simply make sure you clean your Invisalign aligners (and your teeth) thoroughly after each meal and at night and in the morning.

Who Is Invisalign For?

Invisalign is a wonderful option for many patients who could benefit from orthodontic treatment. The most complex cases may still need to be treated with conventional braces, however.

Treatable cases include:

Adults and teens alike can benefit from clear braces with Invisalign. For teens, the compliance indicators help mark when it is time to switch to the next aligners for a more effective treatment. The only way to know for sure whether or not you can take advantage of this clear braces treatment is to schedule an appointment with your dentist providing Invisalign.
