Clear Invisalign® Aligners

Your teeth have many important roles. In addition to biting and chewing, they aid in proper speech, good digestion, and a beautiful smile. If your teeth are aligned poorly, this can result in many significant complications. Biting and chewing become more difficult, which affects your digestion. You are at an increased risk of developing oral health issues such as cavities and gum disease. Crooked teeth also affect the quality of your smile. Braces are a common solution for dealing with crooked teeth, aligning your teeth to improve your smile, your oral health, and your quality of life. However, their high visibility often makes them undesirable. Beyond Dental and Implant Center can provide you with an invisible alternative thanks to Invisalign.

Traditional Braces

Traditionally, crooked teeth have been treated with metal braces. This treatment involves the use of metal brackets and wires to realign your teeth. The brackets are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth and remain in place for the duration of your treatment. A wire spans each arch of teeth, attached to each bracket with an elastic O-ring.

While still popular today, and very effective treatment, the visibility of metal braces makes them aesthetically undesirable. Metal braces can also cause some discomfort as the brackets can rub your intraoral tissues. Moreover, if the wires break, they can poke sensitive tissues, leading to painful sores.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a more modern, more aesthetic, alternative to traditional braces. This treatment involves the use of clear aligners, which allow you to straighten your teeth in a much more discreet manner. Most people will never even be able to tell that you are wearing them. The aligners, which are made from impressions of your mouth, sit over your teeth and gently guide your teeth into proper alignment. In addition to being practically invisible, Invisalign aligners are completely removable. However, to achieve optimal results, it is important that they be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day.

How Invisalign Works

Your aligners are created from digital impressions of your mouth. Thanks to specialized software, we can see every step of your treatment from beginning to end. You can see your beautiful new smile before your treatment even begins.

Invisalign involves the use of several sets of clear plastic aligners. Each set of aligners is made to be worn for two weeks at a time. Every set of aligners is slightly different from the one before it, allowing for the gradual shifting of your teeth. Typically, Invisalign patients go through 18 to 30 sets depending upon their specific situation. Once treatment is complete, you receive a retainer to help maintain your beautiful new smile.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

There are many benefits associated with Invisalign. These benefits include:

  • Discreet treatment. Your aligners are clear and disappear from view when setting into place. Attention will be on you instead of the orthodontic appliances on your teeth.
  • Removable aligners. Your aligners can be removed whenever you need. However, they should only be removed to eat and to brush your teeth. Because of this feature, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without modification, and you can brush and floss your teeth as normal.
  • Greater comfort. The aligners are smooth. Without brackets or wires, you do not have to worry about sores on your gums.
  • Fewer visits to the office during treatment. You do not need monthly adjustments. Instead, we provide you with several sets of aligners, and you change them every two weeks.
  • Shorter treatment period. Typically, treatment time with Invisalign varies from 9 to 15 months, with most patients seeing results in less than a year.

Invisalign provides you with an invisible alternative to traditional braces. With the alignment of your teeth corrected, you can eat more effectively, reduce your risk for oral health issues, and smile confidently.
