WHAT DO INVISALIGN BRACES DO?
For years, adults have been hoping for a way to have beautiful straight smiles, without having to wear unsightly metal braces. Many methods were tried, but not until the recent emergence of Invisalign invisible braces had there been much progress. Now having a beautiful smile, without metal braces, is a reality for thousands of adults and even teens.
Invisalign braces work wonderfully for those that never had the opportunity to have their teeth aligned as a child, or perhaps had braces as they were growing up and now are noticing an increasing pattern of their teeth starting to shift or crowd. For those of you who would love to have a straight healthy smile again, but don’t want the hassle of traditional metal braces, Invisalign invisible braces may be the answer for you.
COMPARISON OF INVISALIGN INVISIBLE BRACES TO METAL BRACES
HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
Invisalign works by creating a series of custom made clear, comfortable and nearly invisible aligners, that patients wear usually for 2 weeks at a time and then switch to the next set. The number of aligners in the series will be determined by the amount of movement needed to create your ideal smile. The more movement needed for your situation, the more aligners will be created for you.
Most of the patients we have treated average 9-12 months of wearing the Invisalign braces, but we have also had a high number of people finish in the 6-9 month range. This is amazing, considering most traditional braces take 18-24 months. Normally, you can expect to return to the office about once every 6 weeks for a progress check, minor detailing and to receive your next sets of aligners. This visit usually takes less than 15 minutes, so you can see that even for the busiest people, Invisalign won’t take that much time out of your often hectic schedule.
Invisalign invisible braces often work FASTER than traditional braces because they have the ability to accurately move individual teeth in a computer enhanced sequence. Having the Invisalign Braces System working for you, is like having the clues for a jigsaw puzzle before you start. You can align the pieces quicker, and get the beautiful straight smile you have been hoping for, in usually 30-40% LESS TIME than traditional braces. Invisalign braces can also be used in combination with cosmetic dentistry, to place and space teeth more ideally to reduce amount of tooth needed to be filed in order to achieve better results with porcelain veneers or lumineers or dental porcelain crowns. Invisalign can also be used to place teeth in more ideal position to place Dental Implants .
