What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets, wires and rubber bands, it uses multiple sets of clear plastic aligners. These aligners look similar to a retainer, and they apply gentle, even pressure to your teeth, moving them into the proper position over time. Thanks to its transparent, comfortable and convenient design, Invisalign is one of the most popular alternatives to traditional braces, particularly for adults.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?

Invisalign is totally invisible when worn and does not affect speech. This means it’s a much more subtle method of orthodontic correction than traditional metal braces.

Invisalign is also more comfortable. Compared to braces, it delivers more gentle, even pressure to correct your teeth, and there are no brackets or wires to scrape and irritate your mouth. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat, drink, brush, and floss normally, making it easy to care for your oral health.

Finally, Invisalign is also typically much faster than braces, and can provide you with a beautiful straight smile in less than a year.

What Can I Expect From The Invisalign Process?

The Invisalign process begins with a comprehensive consultation at our office. If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, Dr. King will use our advanced intraoral scanning technology and intraoral camera to take images and scans of your teeth. You won't have to worry about messy, uncomfortable impressions at our office! Dr. King will send these images and scans to Invisalign. She will work closely with the Invisalign team to develop your treatment plan and build your first several sets of aligners.

Your first aligners will arrive at our office in about a month. When they arrive, you’ll receive instructions about how to wear them properly from Dr. King, then you’ll begin treatment! Each set is worn for 20-22 hours per day for about 2 weeks. You’ll switch to a new set every 2 weeks. Every 6 weeks or so, you’ll come in to pick up your next several sets of aligners, and to get a brief check-up to monitor your progress.

This process will continue until your treatment is complete. Usually, it will take between 20-24 sets of aligners to straighten your teeth, so most patients complete Invisalign treatment in under a year. However, this timeline can vary based on your individual orthodontic needs.

Is Invisalign Expensive?

Overall, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to the cost of braces. Usually, Invisalign is a little bit more expensive than traditional orthodontics, but its numerous benefits including a shorter treatment time, increased comfort, and a more natural appearance outweigh the increased cost.
