The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is an innovative, practically invisible way of straightening crooked or gapped teeth. Replacing traditional brackets with invisible aligner trays that gently shift your teeth into place, Invisalign can get the same results with less disruption to your daily life.
What to Expect from Invisalign
If you’re living with crooked or gapped teeth, Dr. Khanna or Dr. Otrocol can talk you through your goals and help you decide if Invisalign is right for you. If not, they can help you find other straightening options. But many patients prefer Invisalign thanks to its convenience, speed, and reliable results.
If Invisalign is appropriate for you, treatment will begin with a comprehensive examination of your mouth. Your dentist will use advanced digital imaging technology to photograph the entirety of your bite and its underlying structures. They will send these 3D images to Invisalign, which will develop a system of customized trays that will gently shift your teeth into the perfect position over time. You’ll return to the dentist’s office once your trays are ready, and your dentist will go over everything you need to understand to get the best possible results.
Once Invisalign is started, you’ll need to do little to keep up with treatment other than wearing your aligners. You’ll wear your aligners throughout the day and night, changing them every week or so. They can be effortlessly removed for swapping out or for cleaning and eating. You’ll visit your dentist regularly so they can monitor your progress. Many patients are finished with treatment in 6 to 12 months.
Invisalign aligners are an excellent option for patients looking to straighten their teeth but have concerns about the discomfort or visibility of traditional bracket braces. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible to the naked eye and do not require painful wires, awkward brackets, or uncomfortable periodic tightening. At most, you’ll experience some mild pressure the day you change trays, but most Invisalign patients report no discomfort.
