What are Invisalign® Aligners?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic tool which is employed by dentists to address a person’s issues of misaligned or overcrowded teeth without having to use conventional braces. The Invisalign® system is not like these traditional braces because the aligners are fabricated from clear, BPA-free plastic with has been approved for medical use. They are practically invisible when worn. The Invisalign® aligners are created for each person using impressions, x-rays, and 3D imaging to get the exact specifications for their teeth and gums. This information is then sent to the dental laboratory where the aligners are designed.

How do the Aligners Work?

Normally, the dentist will start by designing a treatment plan and requesting a set of aligners for the patient. The exact time frame for treatment and number of aligners used will depend on the severity of the person’s orthodontic problems. The aligners will be worn throughout the whole process and be removed solely to brush and floss teeth, change out the set, or when eating certain foods. Usually, the aligner set is exchanged for a new one every two weeks and must be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours a day to be effective. The aligners designed to be comfortable and to avoid irritating the cheeks and gums like traditional braces can. The treatment program usually last roughly 12 months. However, this will vary based on the person’s particular issues.

What Types of Advantages Does the Invisalign® System Offer?

Metal braces, the most frequently used orthodontic device, cannot be removed during the treatment process. The Invisalign® aligners can be removed whenever the person needs, such as when eating or brushing teeth. Invisalign® aligners are also ideal for a patient who does not want to feel self conscious during treatment as can occur with metal devices because they are transparent. Hygiene routines are easier as well since the aligners can be taken out so the person doesn’t have to clean around brackets and wires.
