Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure that can help with numerous alignment issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, and spaces between the teeth. It also has the advantage of being practically invisible, so no one has to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Difference
Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional metal braces. The most obvious advantage, especially for adults, is that they are virtually invisible. If you’re concerned about a problem with your alignment but feel metal braces will be difficult for you because of your job or other factors, Invisalign might be an excellent alternative.
Other advantages include:
- Alignment trays are easy to clean and removable
- Trays are more comfortable than metal braces
- Treatment requires fewer dietary restrictions
- You can easily see the results of your treatment after two to four weeks
Trays should be worn twenty-two out of every twenty-four hours, and should be kept clean. They should not be worn while you drink hot beverages. Your orthodontist will supply full guidelines for care during your treatment.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
If you need orthodontic treatment, consult with your orthodontist to see if this unique treatment is right for you. Your suitability for this treatment will depend upon exactly what problems you have with your alignment and the ultimate goal for your teeth. Although Invisalign is suitable for a wide range of orthodontic applications, in some cases traditional braces will provide better long-term results.
To make this decision, schedule a consultation to discuss your problems and goals. You’ll have molds and photographs made of your teeth to demonstrate where the problems lie and what your teeth will look like once treatment has been completed. During this appointment, you can also ask any questions you might have and determine what method of treatment will give you the best results.
