Misaligned teeth are a common dental concern among teens and adults. Decades ago, braces were the only option to orthodontically correct smiles. Fortunately, Invisalign clear aligners offer a revolutionary alternative. Unlike braces, Invisalign is virtually invisible and is designed for teens and adults!

What Is Invisalign?
In brief, Invisalign is a customized set of clear aligners that gradually and effectively shift teeth. It is ideal for teens and adults who prefer a more discreet treatment. In addition, the clear aligners are known to show results in 6 to 18 months depending on your unique situation. We highly recommend consulting with our Invisalign provider to see if the aligners are right for you!
Who Benefits From Invisalign?
Invisalign is ideal for teens and adults with mild to moderately misaligned teeth. In other words, those with crowded teeth, open gaps, overbites, crossbites, and underbites can benefit from the aligners.
What Is The Process?
Should you be recommended for the aligners, digital images are taken of your teeth and mouth structure. These images are then sent to the Invisalign lab for the technicians to make your set.
Once the aligners arrive at the office, you’ll be asked to schedule a visit. This appointment consists of fitting into your first set of aligners and learning how to care for your aligners.
Maintaining Your Clear Aligners
It is important to wear your aligners for at least 23 hours a day. Remove them before eating and brush your teeth before reinserting them. This prevents bacterial build-up. Also, you will need to change your aligners every 2 weeks for treatment success. Your dentist is also going to schedule follow up visits to examine your progress.
Why Are Clear Aligners Popular?
Many patients prefer clear aligners for its discreet way of correcting their smiles. For instance, some patients are unhappy with traditional braces due to the metal wires and brackets. Invisalign, however, consists of clear aligners. They are less noticeable which offers a great advantage for teens and adults.
