If you want to straighten your teeth, but don't want the hassle of traditional braces, you may be wondering if Invisalign really works? The straight answer is, YES!
So, what is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option that uses custom-made sets of clear aligners to gently shift your teeth into their desired positions.
Invisalign's aligners are easy to use, comfortable and almost invisible. They can help to correct gaps between your teeth, crowding of teeth and common misalignment issues.
But how does Invisalign treatment work?
Your Invisalign aligners will look much like typical teeth whitening trays.
To begin your treatment, your dentist will take detailed dental impressions of your mouth, then send those impressions off to the Invisalign technicians who will create your unique custom aligners.
Each set of aligners will gradually encourage your teeth to move towards their desired positions.
Approximately every two weeks you will switch aligners, until the desired result is achieved.
How do the Invisalign aligners move my teeth?
Each set of aligners will apply consistent, gentle pressure and force on your teeth.
Rather than moving all of your teeth at once, each phase of your Invisalign treatment focuses on just a few of your teeth at a time.
Each of your teeth will get exactly the right amount of pressure, for the right amount of time, by switching aligners every two weeks.
Invisalign treatment gently moves your teeth and guides them into their new position, leaving you with a straighter smile!
