What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you have always dreamed of! Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, a complete treatment plan can be developed, from start to finish, based on your Invisalign Provider’s prescription. A series of aligners are then custom-made for your teeth. By wearing of each aligner for two weeks, teeth will be able to move little by little throughout the aligner series, until they reach the projected final position!
What is Invisalign made of, and what do they look like?
Invisalign aligners are made of a BPA-free medical grade thermoplastic material, custom-made and developed for each patient. They look similar to teeth-whitening trays.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
-Since Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, orthodontic movements can be accomplished unnoticeably, which allows treatment to fit seamlessly with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others!
-The ability to remove your aligners means you are able to eat and drink what you want during treatment. This also means you can brush and floss easier, allowing you to maintain good oral hygiene!
-The absence of metal brackets and wires means less irritation to your mouth!
-No metal and wire adjustments also means less time at the dentist’s chair!
-Finally, you will be able to view your virtual results even before you begin treatment, so you can see what your straightened teeth will look like, instead of having to imagining it!
How does Invisalign move my teeth?
Invisalign moves teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The main difference from traditional braces is that Invisalign is not only able to control the amount of movement per aligner, but also the timing of the movement. This means that instead of moving the whole arch into a predetermined arch, Invisalign can control movement so that only certain teeth are allowed to move for that particular stage. This results in a more efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the prescribed position.
How many patients have been treated with Invisalign?
More than 3 million patients in over 45 countries have already been treated with Invisalign worldwide!
How much does Invisalign cost?
The cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of your issue and your course of treatment. As a general rule, the cost is comparable to traditional fixed braces.
