Invisalign is the newest and latest technology when it comes to straightening the appearance of your natural teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
When you visit your dentist, they will take an imprint of your teeth, which is then used to personalise your Invisalign trays. The trays gradually straighten out your teeth in a slow but steady process.
Every few weeks or months, depending on your teeth, you will swap out your current tray for the next step. Since the trays are custom-made to fit your teeth, the trays progress you through the straightening process.
The Invisalign trays are worn most of the day, although you may take them out for meals. The longer you wear them, the faster you will progress through the stages.
Is Invisalign better than traditional braces?
Many patients prefer Invisalign trays to traditional braces because they are virtually undetectable since the trays are clear and appear just like your natural teeth. They are subtle, easy to wear, and most patients barely notice them while they are wearing them.
Some patients need traditional braces for more severe crookedness of the teeth. Your dentist will be able to consult with you on the best options for you based on the current state of your teeth.
Invisalign is an excellent option for adults, teens, and children alike, and can help with a wide range of crooked or misaligned teeth.
How long do I need to wear the Invisalign trays?
Each tray only makes minimal shifts of your teeth. The movement between each tray is barely detectable. Most trays are worn for about two weeks. When you first use a tray, they will feel tight as the teeth haven’t yet moved to fit the tray. By the end of those two weeks, the tray will slide on and off easily, and you’re ready for the next.
Most patients will require between 20 to 30 trays for a complete straightening of their teeth, which means the trays will be worn between one to two years.
