How Does Invisalign Work?

Using SmartTrack material by Align Technologies, Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses plastic trays that are customized to your mouth to gently move your teeth into proper alignment. Impressions taken of your smile will result in a personalized set of aligners that you are required to wear throughout the duration of your treatment. When worn 20-22 hours each day for 1-2 weeks at a time, you will notice your pearly whites moving in the desired direction, creating a more pleasing aesthetic and properly functioning smile.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign aligners make it easy to undergo orthodontic treatment. Because of its versatility, it is capable of addressing all types of dental problems, including:

Crowded Teeth

Invisalign can easily move teeth that are sitting too close to each other (crowded teeth) to create appropriate space. This will ensure that you can easily brush and floss your teeth to remove bad bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

Gaps Between Teeth

Clear aligners can also bring teeth closer together when too much space exists. Food and bacteria can easily become trapped in these gaps, increasing your risk for many of the most common oral health problems. However, with Invisalign, your dentist in Wauwatosa can map out a plan that will bridge these gaps and give you a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Bite Alignment

When it comes to realigning your bite, it doesn’t matter if you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite, Invisalign can move and shift your teeth in the right direction, making sure both the upper and lower arches work harmoniously together all while minimizing any potential chronic jaw pain.

The Benefits of Invisalign

When comparing Invisalign to other orthodontic solutions (i.e., traditional braces), it’s easy to see why so many people are turning to these clear aligner systems for help. Many of the benefits you will find by choosing Invisalign include:

  • The ability to keep your treatment a secret. Because of the clear, translucent appearance, it will be difficult for anyone to tell you’re wearing them.
  • An easy-to-maintain solution that only requires clear soap, a soft-bristled toothbrush, and lukewarm water to keep clean.
  • Greater flexibility when eating, drinking, and cleaning your aligners, as you will need to remove them, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages as well as maintain better oral hygiene throughout treatment.
  • Quicker results as opposed to traditional braces.
