For decades, the only real option for those who wanted to straighten their crooked teeth was to invest in braces. While this is an effective way to improve their smile, some feel that braces are unpleasant or embarrassing. This is often particularly true among teenagers. Today we have a fantastic alternative—Invisalign.

Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten teeth by moving them gradually over time. In this way, they function like braces, but unlike braces, they are practically invisible.

Treatable Cases

Invisalign is a viable treatment plan for a variety of ages and dental cases. With this treatment, teens and adults alike can carry on with their daily routine without the shame of metal braces. Invisalign treats bite problems, gapped teeth, crowded teeth, and general alignment issues with your smile.

What is the Invisalign Aligner Technology?

Braces work with metal or ceramic brackets that are glued individually to the teeth. The brackets are connected to an archwire with elastic O-rings, putting pressure on the teeth and jawline to move them into the desired position. The archwire is adjusted periodically as needed.

Invisalign, on the other hand, uses a series of custom-made clear aligners to adjust crooked teeth using gentle, consistent force to reposition them. The Invisalign clear aligners are very precise, allowing for predictable, controlled movement of the teeth, as well as faster treatment.

You will begin with a consultation with your Invisalign-trained dental professional who will evaluate your smile and oral health, allowing them to map out a custom treatment plan. Once this is done, your Invisalign aligners will be created.

The Invisalign aligners will be worn for about 20 to 22 hours each day, removed for eating and certain other activities. Each set of clear aligners will be changed after one or two weeks, according to your treatment plan.

How it Works

Once we decide to move forward with the Invisalign process, our team will show you a digitized version of your perfect smile so you know what to expect. We will then capture a 3D image of your teeth to develop your custom aligners. The aligners will then be trimmed and checked for quality. Once we begin the process, you will wear each retainer for about two weeks. Minimal appointments will be required, as we send multiple retainers with you at once. You will be able to track the improvement of your smile with each step!

What to Expect From Invisalign Treatment

More than anything else, you can expect your Invisalign aligners to provide you with a new, beautiful smile. If you are more familiar with traditional braces, you may be unaware of the advantages offered by Invisalign. Aside from the fact that the clear aligners are essentially invisible, they offer the following benefits:

  • Greater Comfort
    Traditional braces can be irritating to the mouth, but Invisalign is similar to wearing a mouthguard. There are no sharp edges or wires to cause irritation.
  • Convenience
    Invisalign is common enough to be widely available. Their use also requires fewer office visits, as you will be sent home with a series of trays, rather than having to make appointments to adjust an archwire, as is required with braces.
  • Removable
    Invisalign aligners can be removed when you are eating, brushing, and flossing. This can make oral hygiene easier, promoting greater oral health.
  • Simple Maintenance
    Braces may trap food particles but removing your Invisalign aligners to eat means that this will not be a problem. The clear aligners can be cleaned easily by brushing gently with toothpaste and warm water.
  • Faster TreatmentWhile this will vary according to the treatment needs of the individual, Invisalign typically offers faster results than braces.

How much does it cost?

The cost of Invisalign is dependent upon each case. Dr. Kherani and our team will create a treatment plan and provide you with an accurate cost estimate based on your specific case. We accept a variety of payment options to lessen the financial burden and make your perfect smile attainable.

What lifestyle changes will I need to make?

Invisalign requires minimal adjustments to your lifestyle. Unlike traditional braces, you won’t have to worry about Invisalign impacting sports, extracurriculars, or your social life. Less appointments, less disruption, and more results.

Will I need a retainer after treatment?

Much like any other orthodontic work, a retainer is always recommended. Properly cleaning it is critical in maintaining its integrity. Always avoid using toothpaste directly on your retainer, and invest in cleaning tablets to soak it in daily. Most importantly, wear your retainer regularly to avoid any shifting or movement in your teeth.

How long does the Invisalign process take?

This teeth-straightening option is great for a number of reasons. One of our favorite features is that the average timeline for Invisalign to straighten out your smile is significantly shorter than traditional metal braces. While their metal counterpart usually takes around two years to work their magic, Invisalign can take anywhere between nine to sixteen months for you to see the end results. For quick and convenient results, Invisalign is a great option.

How should I take care of my Invisalign aligners?

Taking care of your aligners is an important part of making sure that your teeth straightening treatments stay on track. Be sure to brush your aligners at the same time as your natural teeth (two times a day for two minutes each time). Recommended care includes taking them out and giving them a thorough cleaning on the inside and out to ensure no food particles or plaque sneak their way into your smile. You should most definitely use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste when caring for your aligners in this way so as not to cause unnecessary damage.

Are there any foods I should avoid eating with Invisalign?

That’s another great feature of Invisalign when compared to traditional braces. Say goodbye to no popcorn, gum, or a number of the other things you can’t eat when wearing metal braces. Your Invisalign aligners are 100% removable, so you can enjoy all the foods and drinks you love by taking them out to indulge and then by putting them back when you’re finished. Thanks to Invisalign, you don’t have to miss out on life anymore.
