How Does Invisalign Work?
Heard of Invisalign® but not really sure how something that looks so seamless can have such a positive impact on your appearance? Let us fill you in on how this nearly invisible straightening options works!
How They Work
Your Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor. Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of a proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
Caring for Your Teeth with Aligners
Your Invisalign aligners are easy to remove so you can eat your favorite foods without restrictions or getting food stuck in wires and brackets. You can also brush and floss as you normally would. And cleaning your aligners is just as simple as brushing them and rinsing them in warm water,
So if you’ve been curious about Invisalign, come in for a consultation or ask at your dental check-up to see if the path to straighter teeth may be simpler than you think!
