metal wires or brackets. Contact our office today to take the
first step towards an improved smile you can be proud to show off.
How Invisalign Works
Impressions of your teeth are taken to create your aligners. You’ll need to wear each one for 22 hours a day
for a period of two weeks before moving on to the next one. After 6 to 18 months, you’ll be seeing significant
improvements to your teeth.
In many cases, we’ll also put a series of attachments on your teeth. The attachments are essentially small
pieces of white filling material. These help the aligners connect snugly to your teeth and help with the physics of
the movement. After treatment is complete, we remove the attachments and smooth your teeth, so you’d never
know they were there at all. Attachments don’t harm your teeth.
Indications for Invisalign
While it depends on the complexity of the issue, Invisalign can be used to treat many of the most common orthodontic
If your teeth are too close together, you won’t be able to brush and floss them properly. This will make it
more likely that you’ll develop tooth decay and gum disease. An Invisalign treatment will give your teeth the
space they need to line up properly.
Spaces Between Teeth
Conversely, if the teeth are too far apart, it can make you feel self-conscious. The empty, hard-to-brush space will
also provide an excellent hiding place for bacteria and food particles. Depending on the amount of space involved,
Invisalign can close these gaps.
If you’re suffering from an underbite or overbite, it can put undue pressure on your jaw point and cause you to
grind and clench your teeth at night. Over time, this can cause you to lose a lot of enamel. Many bite problems can
be corrected with Invisalign.
