A Comprehensive Guide to Invisalign


Invisalign is the cutting-edge alternative to traditional braces. What makes Invisalign so attractive is that all of its components are made of clear, nearly invisible, plastic.

Invisalign: A Dental Realignment Procedure that Works

One of Invisalign's advantages is its simplicity. You will no longer have to endure a long and time-consuming process to get the straight and beautiful smile you've always wanted. 

In the field of cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign is the ideal teeth straightening treatment due to its versatility and near invisibility.

To better understand how Invisalign is a cut above all other dental realignment systems, see how Invisalign works below.

How Invisalign Works

To ensure a tight fit that leaves no room for movement, the first set of Invisalign aligners is applied by our dentist. Once applied, the appliance’s tension starts to pull the teeth in the needed direction. The material from which they are made is completely clear and blends with the teeth's natural color.

Practical Benefits of Invisalign

In case you need to learn more about Invisalign's advantages, here you'll find additional ones:

The aligners are practically invisible to the naked eye, except upon close examination. This is because the material used to make them is a strong, yet clear plastic that makes it easy to seamlessly blend in with your teeth's natural color.

Invisalign aligners are as versatile as they are comfortable. Before eating or drinking, it is best to take them out as hot temperatures may affect their durability and strength. Once done, thoroughly rinse your mouth to ensure that there are no food particles stuck to your teeth, then pop in your aligners.

They fit snugly because they are custom-molded to fit your mouth and no one elses. This tight fit moves and aligns teeth more effectively because the pressure is applied to a larger surface area. By moving all teeth as one, the end result is a more uniform alignment.

Invisalign aligners comfortably fit and adjust to your teeth, thus making them a better choice for those patients who intend to wear them on a long-term basis.

Invisalign is convenient for people with busy lifestyles. You can eat and drink what you want, play sports, go to the gym, and just keep on living your life while your teeth and smile are getting better and better.
