What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners to straighten teeth instead of traditional metal brackets and wires. This option is appealing to adult patients who may be experiencing a shifting of their teeth due to age, or relapse of previous orthodontic treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works efficiently because you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day. However, they can be removed so that you can brush, floss, and eat as you did before treatment. Adults appreciate that there are no changes to their home care routine or diet required to complete Invisalign treatment.

Aligners can also be changed at home every two weeks, which eliminates the need for the frequent checkups required with bracket and wire braces. Dr. Smith will only need to examine your teeth periodically throughout your Invisalign treatment to ensure that they are moving as planned and on time.
