Invisalign Aligners: Practical and Discreet Orthodontics

Invisalign aligners are a simple and effective orthodontic solution to improve the structure of the teeth. Over the last decade, clear braces have increased in popularity due to their discreet appearance and effective treatment.

Though Invisalign aligners are not entirely invisible, they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. This makes Invisalign is an attractive orthodontic treatment for adults, teens, and even kids.

How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?

The Invisalign aligners system is a virtually invisible method of teeth straightening. Similar to traditional braces, the aligners are custom-built to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth and gradually straighten over time. The aligners must be worn for 22 hours a day and only removed to eat, brush teeth, and when drinking fluids other than water.

The Invisalign kit comes with a tray of several clear aligners, which you will switch out every few weeks until treatment is complete. The Invisalign treatment is mainly done at home, so there’s no need to book a dentist appointment every few weeks as with traditional braces.

Invisalign Aligners FAQs 

  • How does the treatment work?

    The Invisalign treatment involves wearing a clear set of removable aligners to gradually straighten the teeth. You will wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, and switch the trays out every 1-2 weeks. The treatment length varies by patient. Our dentists will be able to provide you with an estimated length during your initial consultation.

  • How comfortable are the Invisalign aligners?

    Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners do not have any metal wires or brackets and therefore provide a much more comfortable treatment process. You may experience some discomfort initially, but this is normal and should subside within a few days.

  • How much does Invisalign cost?

    The cost of Invisalign depends on the complexity of the correction process and the individual treatment. In your initial consultation, our dentist will discuss cost and payment plan options.

  • Who is Invisalign for?

    Invisalign is for anyone who requires the same orthodontic treatment as with traditional braces. Anyone as young as six years old can take advantage of Invisalign aligners.
