Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly with Invisalign

young girl wearing invisalign after her orthodontist appointmentIf you’re unhappy with your smile—whether it’s crooked or gapped—Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient way to straighten and adjust your teeth. Available as an alternative to braces for the past two decades, Invisalign is becoming a more and more popular method of teeth straightening among teens and adults. This is because Invisalign is comfortable, smooth, and won’t irritate your mouth while you’re wearing yours. Plus, you get the added bonus of being able to take them out when needed—unlike with braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Just like with braces, Invisalign works to straighten and align your teeth over time. After taking impressions and X-rays of your teeth, we’ll develop a treatment plan for you—spelling out how long the process will take and how your teeth will change over time. From there, we’ll give you sets of custom-made aligners, which are made from BPA-free plastic. You’ll wear each set of aligners for at least 20 hours a day for two weeks until your teeth have reached the final setting. Unlike with braces, Invisalign lets you remove the comfortable aligners to brush your teeth and eat for extra convenience.

What is Invisalign Used for?

While it Invisalign isn’t just used for straightening crooked teeth. A number of conditions treatable by Invisalign include:

  • Crowding

  • Crossbite

  • Gapped Teeth

  • Open Bite

  • Overbite
