What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

woman with Invisalign If you’d like a healthy, more attractive smile but dread the thought of traditional braces, Invisalign may help you achieve your goals. This orthodontic system provides the benefits of traditional braces without the negatives.

In this blog, the doctors at Dental365 explain the benefits of Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

It's an orthodontic system that straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made aligners. Since they’re made of clear plastic, they’re virtually invisible and help you avoid much of the discomfort of traditional braces, since there are no metal brackets or wires.

What is involved with this treatment?

Here's what you can expect if you're interested in Invisalign:

Evaluation - You’ll first meet with an orthodontist or dentist, who will evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment goals. He or she will determine if Invisalign will help you meet your goals, and if so, digital measurements and scans will be taken of your mouth. A treatment plan will be created and used to design sets of custom-made plastic trays that will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place over time.

Creation of trays - Your data will be sent to the lab, which will create your custom-fit trays. A digital model can also be created to show you what your smile should look like after treatment is completed.

Treatment - You’ll receive a tray to wear, removing it to eat, brush, or floss. After about two weeks, you’ll switch to a new tray as your teeth move gradually into their new positions. Approximately every six weeks, you’ll visit your so your progress can be monitored.

What are the benefits?

This orthodontic treatment offers the following benefits when compared to traditional braces:

  • Creates a smile that’s more attractive and uniform
  • Offers an improved appearance during treatment since the trays are nearly invisible
  • Makes treatment faster – often between 10 and 14 months
  • Allows you to remove your trays for eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Enables you to eat what you want, including popcorn and apples
  • Improve your oral health since you can brush and floss much more effectively
  • Allows progress to be monitored on a regular basis by your orthodontist
