Invisalign clear braces are an advanced aesthetic dentistry method that straightens your teeth without the uncomfortable look of traditional metal or ceramic braces. As opposed to being fixed on your teeth, these invisible braces can easily be temporarily removed for eating or to be cleaned.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is a set of clear braces that are designed specifically for you. We will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth that will be sent to Invisalign. Once they receive your x-rays and impressions, they will create a 3-D, customized impression just for you. These aligners are created using smooth, comfortable plastic that fits over your teeth like a glove. You will get a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth slowly begin to shift and move into the right place to give you a perfect smile. The convenience is that you no longer have to deal with the hassle of metal braces or painful wires that must be tightened.
Invisalign is recommended to be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day. Because it is such a comfortable set of clear braces, you will almost forget you have them in. We recommend to leave them in at all times unless you are playing a sport that requires a mouthguard, flossing and brushing, or eating a meal. The easy removal makes this an easy task that you’re rarely have to think about.
