Looking for an alternative to traditional braces that will give you a stunning smile, without the hassle of metal wires and brackets? Invisalign® may be the treatment for you! In this blog post we’ll let you know how Invisalign works, and help you understand why it’s such a popular smile solution.

How Does Invisalign Work?

With Invisalign treatment, you wear a series of clear trays that gradually shift your teeth into the desired place. The process begins with digital impressions that the dentist will use to create a roadmap for your treatment. You’ll even get to see a digital simulation of your future smile. Next, based on the impressions and the plan your dentist has developed, a series of clear aligners will be custom-made for you in an off-site lab. Once the aligners are available, you’ll begin treatment. Over the course of treatment you will move through the aligners according to your dentist’s instructions. You will wear each set for about two weeks at a time. Finally, the end result will be a perfectly straight smile.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Many consider Invisalign to be an easier alternative to traditional metal braces. There are a number of benefits to clear aligners. First, Invisalign treatment is nearly invisible, so it doesn’t actually look like you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Next, aligners are comfortable and easy to wear. Additionally, they can be removed so that you can eat, and brush and floss your teeth. Finally, the treatment time tends to be much shorter than the time it takes to complete treatment with traditional, metal braces.
