How Invisalign Works
This orthodontic treatment uses a series of plastic clear aligners. Each is designed to apply a specific amount of pressure that will gradually shift your teeth into their more ideal positions. You’ll have to wear each set of aligners for a couple of weeks, switching to the next set to maintain their progress. By working through the series of clear trays, you’ll be one step closer to enjoying a perfectly straight smile.
Indications for Invisalign
Although you’ll likely need to use traditional metal braces to address severe orthodontic issues, Invisalign clear aligners can correct mild to moderate problems, including:
Teeth that are overlapping or too close together will form small spaces where food particles and debris can get lodged. If left unchecked, this can increase your risk of oral health issues significantly, such as cavities and gum disease. With Invisalign, you can realign your pearly whites to create a more uniform smile.
Gaps Between Teeth
One or multiple gaps between your teeth may raise your risk of enamel damage. With too much space among them, they can begin to wear down, chip, or crack over time. Clear aligners can gently and effectively close these gaps to both improve your appearance and avoid long-term problems with your teeth.
Are you struggling with an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite? Invisalign can help address these and other common bite alignment concerns. Our team will carefully develop a custom-designed treatment plan to best correct your bite.
