What are Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without having to live with the “metal mouth” look of traditional braces.
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth.
As a result, Invisalign is kind of like invisible braces. It’s also virtually clear, so most people around you probably won’t even notice you’re wearing it.
Even better, it’s comfortable, without wires & brackets that could irritate your mouth and cause ulcers.
Invisalign aligners are made just for you with advanced 3-D computerized technology. CUSTOM-MADE for YOUR teeth, and only your teeth.
Eventually, little by little, and over time determined, your teeth will gently move to create the smile you’ve always wanted.
The best thing about Invisalign – you literally get to see how your teeth would look at the end of treatment before you even start, you go for it only if you are happy with it.
Is Invisalign Treatment Right For You?
The simple answer is…most probably. Invisalign works for many, but not all cases.
Therefore we will assess your teeth and tell you if it will work for you.
How often are the Invisalign appointments?
Depending on the individual, each
aligner is worn between one and two weeks.
If we were to give you between 4 and 6 aligners every visit then you will be visiting us once every 4 to 12 weeks.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
Invisalign Treatment can vary from 3 months to 18 months.
On average about 9 months.
As a result the Invisalign cost also varies based on the treatment time.
Does Invisalign alter my Speech?
Once you are used to wearing Invisalign aligners, (that takes a day or two) you will be able to speak normally.
Invisalign is more convenient than traditional braces.
The aligners are easily removable, so you choose when you wear them.
You’re free to take them out whenever you need to. Eating, drinking, brushing… you name it.
Even if you just need a break from wearing your aligners during a high school reunion or special work event, that’s ABSOLUTELY FINE.
But remember, you need to wear your aligners as prescribed in order to achieve your treatment goals.
If you don’t wear the aligners then your treatment will not be successful.
Do I wear the Invisalign aligners 24/7?
Yes, But you do take them out to eat and clean.
The lesser you wear them the longer it takes for the treatment to be effective.
DO NOT choose Invisalign treatment, if you think you are not going to be wearing the aligners.
It is not going to work effectively and it will be frustrating when the treatment is not going the way you would like it to go.
Due to that the Invisalign cost will go up as well.
Is Invisalign really invisible?
From a normal conversational distance, most people will never notice.
Invisalign is ideal for adults who want straight teeth but who do not want everyone to know that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Is Invisalign suitable for children?
