Invisible braces consist of graduating sets of clear trays that apply direct pressure to gently shift your teeth to their optimal position. They are made from a thin, smooth, body-safe plastic that fits comfortably over your teeth. The aligners are clear, which allows you to straighten your smile discreetly.
Invisalign trays are popular for addressing mild to moderate bite malocclusions or misalignments. In order to maintain your treatment timeline, you will need to wear your clear aligners for 22 hours each day. Due to the strict requirements of the treatment, we recommend Invisalign clear braces for responsible teens and adults.
As your teeth shift into their new positions, you will notice it becomes easier to brush and floss your teeth properly. This improves your oral hygiene routine by more effectively cleaning your teeth and gums, which helps to prevent cavities, infection, and gum disease. Straight teeth also align your bite pattern, which prevents uneven wear on your teeth and improves your overall health because properly chewed food aids in better digestion. This can even prevent or reduce the effects of long-term problems such as jaw pain.
A straighter smile also boosts your quality of life because when you feel good about the appearance of your smile, it's easier for you to smile openly in public and social gatherings. Your smile says a lot about you, and when you feel confident to share it, it will represent you in a positive way.
Transforming your smile is a personal journey, and it's important to have a team that can help you achieve your dream smile. Our friendly team takes the time to get to know you and asks questions to fully understand your smile goals so we can craft a treatment plan that is customized to fit you and your needs. We begin with a gentle exam and use modern technology like the iTero® scanner to determine if you qualify for Invisalign clear trays.
Our team sends the scans of your teeth and jaws to a trusted lab where your invisible braces will be created. Once we have received your clear trays, we will have you visit our office again and discuss how to wear your aligners and the timeline for your treatment. Our team will provide instructions and tips to maintain your clear aligners.
When you have finished your treatment, you'll receive a custom set of Vivera® retainers, which are made of the same comfortable acrylic as your Invisalign trays. The retainers perform the vital function of maintaining your newly straightened smile, so it's important to follow the directions and wear them consistently so your teeth don't relapse into misalignment.
We welcome open discussion, and we encourage you to ask questions. Our team is happy to provide the answers you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about clear trays.
How long will the Invisalign aligners take?
Your treatment timeline will depend on the severity of your bite misalignment. However, most treatment plans last approximately 6-18 months.
Do invisible braces hurt?
No. Clear aligners are made from a smooth, thin plastic. There are no sharp edges that irritate the inside of your lips and cheeks, so they are comfortable to wear. You may experience slight sensitivity the first day or two of wearing a new set of aligners, but the feeling will disappear quickly.
Can you sleep with clear aligners?
Yes. It is necessary to sleep wearing the aligners during treatment to ensure you achieve the required 22 hours of daily wear. This is beneficial because, after treatment, you will need to wear your Vivera retainer when you sleep to maintain your straight smile.
