Considering Invisalign? Not Sure If They Would Be A ‘Fit’ For You?

Invisalign is a treatment process whereby a series of clear, removable aligners are worn to gradually straighten teeth. Invisalign is a more aesthetic alternative to traditional braces as there are no brackets or wires. 

If you are considering Invisalign, read on as we answer frequently asked questions about the Invisalign process. 

What are Invisalign clear aligners made of?

Invisalign clear aligners are made of a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack that is exclusive to Invisalign. This plastic is thin, clear, and flexible which makes them almost invisible. Invisalign aligners are completely safe as they are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

How will Invisalign straighten my teeth?

Prior to beginning Invisalign treatment, your dentist will map out the exact movements of your teeth and create a digital treatment that is unique to you. Based on your treatment plan, your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. Your dentist will monitor progress along the way and ensure your aligners are fitting correctly and working as they should.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible, so people will not even notice you are wearing them! Unlike traditional braces, you can remove them when you eat, brush or floss, or if you have a special event. The best part is the clear aligners are made of flexible plastic so there are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth.

Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system. With its patented SmartTrack material, the fit and comfort levels are superior to other brands. Further, Invisalign aligners are trimmed to fit your unique gum line to ensure optimal comfort and appearance.

Am I guaranteed to have straight teeth with Invisalign treatment?

It is important to note that every smile is different, that is why the consultation process with a dental professional is so crucial. Your dentist is there to listen to your treatment goals, and help determine what Invisalign can do for you and your smile.

Is Invisalign treatment right for me?

Invisalign treatment is a great solution for everyone! Both adults and teens look to Invisalign as an invisible method of improving their smiles. Invisalign is a convenient alternative to traditional braces.
