How does Invisalign work?
After taking impressions of your smile and sending them to the Invisalign lab, our staff will receive a set of personalized aligners which are made from clear, comfortable plastic. Each one is designed to represent the arrangement of your teeth as they slowly move towards their ideal placement. Patients just need to wear each aligner for at least 20-22 hours a day and remember to switch to the one after 2 weeks have passed. Additionally, short check-ups with Dr. Kane every four to six weeks allows us to track your progress and confirm the treatment is moving along smoothly. In comparing traditional metal braces with Invisalign, Invisalign offers patients several benefits which include:
- The aligners are clear and virtually invisible when worn, which allows patients to stay confident and excited when showing off their smile.
- No uncomfortable brackets or wires to worry about. The aligners are customized to fit your mouth comfortably, as well as tough and durable.
- With the aligners being removable, this means you can enjoy all your favorite foods as well as and practice oral hygiene at home like normal. It is important to put the aligners right back in your mouth once you are finished!!!
- Most Invisalign cases require 10-18 months for active treatment, which is an improvement from the two or more years’ traditional metal braces often require.
