Invisalign is an invisible braces system for people who want the perfect smile, without the inconvenience of traditional braces. More than three million people worldwide have used Invisalign to help them achieve perfectly straight teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently move your teeth into the correct position. Invisalign aligners are fully removable and comfortable to wear. More than 70% of U.S. and Canadian orthodontists are certified to offer Invisalign to their patients – including Dr. Lewis! Invisalign is made using advanced 3D technology and since it was first introduced as a revolutionary orthodontic treatment, Invisalign has proved extraordinarily effective. It is especially popular with teenagers.
Why Choose Invisalign Braces?
Braces are often inconvenient, but Invisalign has all the benefits without the negatives. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign braces are extremely flexible and you can carry on living your life while wearing your aligners. Invisalign are invisible braces. They are comfortable, fully removable, and very comfortable.
Taking care of your teeth is much easier with Invisalign braces. You can take your aligners out to clean your teeth, so it is much easier to maintain oral hygiene during the treatment plan. You also don’t have to worry about food getting caught up in your braces, which is a common issue with traditional braces.
You will still need to come in for check-ups every ten weeks or when Dr. Lewis specifies, but these are very quick appointments, so it shouldn’t impact your lifestyle too much. Most people need between 30-60 sets of aligners during treatment. Aligners are changed every week and treatment normally lasts for around 12-months. However, under the right circumstances, it could take as little as nine months to move your teeth into the optimum position.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You need to wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22-hours per day, but you can remove them to clean and floss your teeth, eat and drink, or even go for a night out. Each set of aligners is worn for a week before being changed out for a new set. Each time you start wearing a new set of Invisalign aligners, your teeth will move slowly and gently. Invisalign doesn’t use wires or elastics to move teeth, so it is far more comfortable to wear.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
While Invisalign is a very successful orthodontic treatment, it is not right for everyone. Invisalign is most effective in patients with crowded teeth or teeth with gaps, under and overbites, and crossbites.
