    What is Invisalign?

    Invisalign is a modern, high-tech alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable clear aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. These aligners are made of durable plastic using 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective for straightening teeth all over the world. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are now certified to treat with Invisalign, as are many dentists. Invisalign lets you smile more during treatment as well as after.

    How does it work?

    You wear each set of clear aligners (upper and lower) for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner set with the next one in the series, typically every 2 to 3 weeks, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of clear aligners worn during treatment is usually between 18 and 30, but these numbers will vary from person to person.

    Will it work for me?

    How does Invisalign compare with traditional braces?

    Invisalign aligners are not only invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment, without the dietary restrictions necessary when you wear traditional metal braces. You can also brush and floss with no problem. Having the ability to maintain your home oral hygiene is a huge advantage. The clear aligners are also more comfortable to wear, with no metal parts to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal or arch wires means you spend less time getting orthodontic adjustments. Invisalign even allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan and expected results when you start so you can see how your new straight-teeth smile will look when treatment is complete.

    Aren’t all clear liners equal?

    The Invisalign system is more than a clear aligner. It’s an entire system.

    Apples, popcorn, pizza… no problem!

    You’ve probably heard from friends with braces that you won’t be able to eat anything. With Invisalign Teen you can eat whatever you want! Unlike traditional metal braces, your Invisalign Teen clear aligners are removable, which means you can go ahead and eat all the things you love without worrying about breaking a bracket or losing a rubber band. Cheers! It’s your life; don’t let braces get in the way!

    Clear aligners are comfortable and durable. They also fit in with your school and extracurricular activities. So whether you’re acting in a school play, swimming a 50-meter backstroke, throwing a football down field, or playing the clarinet with the school band, you won’t have to worry about your braces getting in the way! If you’re searching for “Invisalign near me,” be sure to give Family Orthodontics a call.
