A Patient’s Guide to Invisalign

Beauty concept

Orthodontic treatment can help correct a number of problems, including crowded or crooked teeth. Clear aligners, such as those used in the Invisalign system, are a form of orthodontic treatment that can bring the teeth into proper alignment. Take a closer look at the Invisalign treatment system to learn more:                                                                            

  • What Is Invisalign?
    The Invisalign system is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. In order to begin treatment with Invisalign, a patient’s teeth must be carefully evaluated. A treatment plan is then established, and the trays are custom-made to move the teeth into precise positions over the course of treatment.
  • What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
    Patients who undergo treatment with Invisalign experience several benefits. First, having teeth that are in proper alignment can boost a person’s confidence and oral health, as it is easier to clean between straight teeth. In addition, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible, making them extremely difficult to detect. The aligners are removable, which makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene during treatment. Patients also find Invisalign to be more comfortable than traditional braces, as there are no metal wires involved that may poke the gums and cheeks.
  • Where Should I Go for Invisalign?
    For successful treatment with Invisalign, it is essential to have the trays fitted and designed by an expert in tooth alignment. While a dentist may be able to provide Invisalign trays, an orthodontist’s extensive knowledge and experience in aligning teeth ensures optimal orthodontic treatment . An orthodontist can create a treatment plan that will not only straighten the teeth, but also correctly align the top and bottom rows of teeth with each other. This will provide patients with a smile that not only looks great, but is also comfortable too.
