Ideal Smiles can help you straighten your teeth while improving your overall dental health with Invisalign rather than with the use of metal wires and brackets that come with traditional braces. This innovative, gentle teeth-straightening treatment option allows you to smile more during your treatment and worry less about routine maintenance or having people notice your braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible way to gradually improve your alignment and bite without having to drastically alter your oral health routine. At Ideal Dental, we use a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made through a combination of your orthodontist's expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
How Does Invisalign Work?
With Invisalign, you're given a set of clear aligners which you wear for about two weeks at a time, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each Invisalign aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist has prescribed. Total Invisalign treatment time averages between 9-15 months, with an average of 18 to 30 aligners worn during treatment.
Invisalign vs. Metal Braces
There are many differences between Invisalign and traditional metal braces, such as:
- Virtually invisible, clear aligners
- Comfortable Invisalign plastic aligners that won't poke or hurt your cheeks
- Invisalign aligners are removable and easy to clean
- Invisalign requires less maintenance and fewer visits to the dentist
