How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign works to straighten your teeth, correcting your bite by moving crooked or misaligned teeth into the proper position to improve your appearance and the function of your mouth. Like traditional metal braces, Invisalign does this by gently applying pressure over time. However, with Invisalign, you won’t be wearing metal brackets and wires, but removable clear plastic aligners that blend in with your mouth and fit over your teeth for a subtle, discreet appearance that most people won’t even notice!
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign®?
Invisalign gives you the ability to straighten your teeth and create a beautiful, elegant smile without having to spend years wearing the sort of traditional metal braces that make many people feel awkward every time they open their mouths. Instead, you’ll wear clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and are (almost) invisible. You’ll be able to feel much more comfortable and confident while going through treatment, while still experiencing the amazing results that can come from orthodontic work.
How Long Does Invisalign® Take?
While treatment length may vary depending on your needs, Invisalign typically takes about 18 months. However, you may start to see results faster — often within just a few months!
Can My Teen Use Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an option for anyone who is a candidate for orthodontic work — which means teens as well as adults! Many teenagers prefer the sleeker, more discreet appearance of Invisalign over traditional metal braces and love the flexibility that comes from being able to remove their aligners anytime they need to eat. If your child is interested in Invisalign, we suggest bringing them in for a consultation after the last of their adult teeth has grown in — usually by age 12 or so. That way, we can get right to work and have their teeth looking great in no time.
