What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Patients choose Invisalign treatment for their variety of advantages:

  • Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made with smooth plastic that fits snuggly around your teeth for an extremely comfortable fit.
  • Treatment time: On average, Invisalign treatment takes between 10 and 18 Months. On the other hand, traditional braces can take 2 to 3 years to complete.
  • Appearance: Invisalign aligners are made with a clear plastic that allows you to smile without worrying about the aesthetic disadvantages that come with traditional braces.
  • Eating: Invisalign’s clear braces are completely removeable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods. Just be sure to clean your mouth before putting your aligners back in.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligning trays to gradually shift your teeth into alignment. Dr. Weber will take images and impressions of your smile, which he will then use to create your custom aligning trays. He will typically recommend that you wear each of your trays for around 2 weeks, 20 to 22 hours each day. After your treatment is complete, he will give you a clear retainer to ensure the shift in your smile is permanent.

How Do I Care for My Invisalign Aligners?

Caring for your Invisalign is easy! Clean your aligners by lightly brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching. You should also avoid using hot water because it can warp the plastic. Additionally, be sure to clean your teeth after eating but before putting your aligners back in to avoid staining the clear plastic.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

Candidates for Invisalign treatment are typically those with mild to moderate misalignment who are in their adult years or older teens. It’s important that candidates are committed to wearing their aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, which is why Invisalign is used mostly for adults. The best way to know whether this treatment is right for you is to request an appointment with Dr. Weber. He will give your smile a careful examination to see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.
