Invisalign has changed the game when it comes to orthodontic treatment. It takes a completely different approach to straightening teeth and correcting bites, using a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth over time instead of the traditional metal brackets and wires.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is popular with adults and teens because:
- It’s discreet. Even clear braces have a noticeable metal wire. Invisalign aligners are made with thin, clear plastic. Your coworkers and classmates won’t even know that you’re wearing them.
- It’s comfortable. Braces are bulky, with brackets that rub against your lips and wires that poke your cheeks. Invisalign fits right against your teeth for a more natural feel.
- It’s convenient. There’s no special diet or oral hygiene regimen with Invisalign. Simply take your aligners out and eat whatever you like and brush and floss like you normally would.
It’s effective. While there are some complicated cases that require traditional braces, for most patients Invisalign is just as effective as braces when it comes to straightening teeth and correcting bites.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign process begins with digital impressions. Dr. Roisman uses these to create a 3D model of your smile and plan how your teeth should move throughout your treatment. This plan is then sent to Invisalign, where your clear aligners are fabricated.
Once you have your aligners, you will switch to the next set about every two weeks, or as instructed by Dr. Roisman. You’ll visit our office every six weeks to ensure that your teeth are moving as planned. When treatment is complete, you’ll receive a set of Vivera retainers to make sure your beautiful new smile lasts a lifetime.
