Invisalign® Basics

From The Smile Agency

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth in a quicker amount of time and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. Thousands of orthodontists in the United States and Canada use Invisalign® braces to accurately and effectively treat their patients. Invisalign® aligners are:


  • Completely invisible braces – Invisalign® aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them! Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are wearing braces, unless of course you tell them!
  • Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won’t irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
  • Customized just for you – Your Invisalign® aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Karen Guinn uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth, then she customizes each aligner so that it fits your mouth, and over time moves your teeth into the proper
    position
  • Removable braces –Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
  • Effective – You will begin to notice a significant difference even before your treatment is complete! Most treatments are complete within one year; however this can vary from patient to patient.


How Does Invisalign® Straighten My Teeth?

The most commonly asked question from our patients is “how long will this treatment take?” With traditional braces, treatment times can take between 18 and 24 months; but with an Invisalign® treatment, it may only take between nine to 15 months. That’s almost half the time of traditional braces!

When you begin your Invisalign® treatment you will receive several sets of custom fit aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for only two weeks. After two weeks you can switch your aligners with the next set and continue straightening your teeth. Over time you will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth, and in just a few months you will have a straighter, healthier smile!
