How Invisalign Works

Instead of using metal brackets and wires to shift your teeth into a more ideal position, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually correct your smile. These custom trays are designed to be worn for a couple of weeks for every set, each moving your pearly whites closer and closer to their desired places. You’ll need to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours each day, which will place sufficient pressure on your smile to encourage your teeth to move. Once you’ve worked through each set of clear trays as directed by your treatment plan, you’ll be able to enjoy and show off perfectly straightened pearly whites!

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign is highly effective and the most popular orthodontic method for achieving more appealing smiles. Here are several of the common dental problems this treatment is designed to address:

Crowded Teeth

If you feel you have too many teeth in your mouth, then you might have an overcrowded smile. This condition can negatively affect both the appearance and function of your teeth, making it more difficult to thoroughly clean your pearly whites. Invisalign can space out your teeth before shifting them to a more ideal position.

Gaps Between Teeth

Having too many gaps between your teeth can feel embarrassing as well as increase your risk of accumulating debris and bacteria. By gradually moving your pearly whites, Invisalign will offer you a straighter and safer smile in the long run.

Bite Alignment

Invisalign is also able to address bite problems like underbites, overbites, crossbites, and more. You may need to use additional accessories such as rubber bands to help your clear aligners move your teeth more efficiently for better alignment.
