Nowadays, dentists utilize a plethora of orthodontic treatments other than metal braces for straightening your smile. One of these treatments is Invisalign, which is more discreet and comfortable than traditional orthodontic treatments. Here at the East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care in Boca Raton, FL, our dentists use Invisalign for realigning crooked teeth and correcting bite problems.

What Exactly is Invisalign?

With Invisalign, you won’t require metal brackets or wires to straighten your crooked teeth. This orthodontic treatment corrects your teeth’s position with a series of detachable, clear aligner trays made of thermoplastic material that snugly fit over your teeth. These aligner trays will apply constant pressure on the teeth to gradually put them in the correct position.

Your Invisalign aligner trays will be customized for you after your dentist has created a 3D digital image of the inside of your mouth. This image will then be used for plotting your entire Invisalign treatment. You will need to wear each tray for 22 hours every day for roughly two weeks before you can wear the succeeding tray.

Will Invisalign Work Effectively Like Metal Braces?

Absolutely! This treatment is just as effective as traditional metal braces for fixing mild-to-moderate bite problems, spacing issues, and crookedness. However, while many people could benefit from Invisalign aligners, metal braces might be a better fit for you if you have more severe misalignment or bite issues. For teenagers, treatment times could take up to two years or more depending on various factors. For adults, the treatment time is typically shorter, which is roughly a year or two in most cases.

How Will Invisalign Benefit Me?

Invisalign aligners are a great option if you’re looking to treat your issues without drawing unwanted attention to your smile during treatment. Likewise, because of their snug fit, your aligners will blend right in and won’t be visible in person or in photos. You also won’t need to worry about cutting the inside of your mouth or your lips with stray metal wires because the aligners don’t have any wires. Oral hygiene is also very easy with Invisalign—you simply remove the aligners prior to flossing or brushing, and then pop them back in once you’re done. You can likewise remove the aligners before eating, allowing you to eat anything you want without fear of food particles becoming stuck in your teeth.
