What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional braces and other clear aligner brands. Many patients choose Invisalign clear aligner therapy because Invisalign aligners are:
- Comfortable to wear for many hours
- Virtually invisible on the teeth
- Completely removable; no food restrictions
- Easy to clean
- Efficient and effective at straightening smiles
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
Many of our patients who are interested in receiving orthodontic treatment are candidates for Invisalign. While clear aligner therapy used to be recommended for patients with mild malocclusion, it can now be used to help a wide variety of patients with all different kinds of orthodontic needs. Wearing clear aligners consistently does require commitment on the patient’s part, so Invisalign is not always recommended to patient’s who are very forgetful or younger kids who are not responsible enough to keep track of removable trays.
How often do you have to wear Invisalign aligners?
Patients should plan to wear their Invisalign aligners every day for approximately 20 to 22 hours per day. Ideally, you should wear your aligners any time you are not eating or brushing your teeth to keep your treatment plan on track. Not wearing aligners frequently enough can lead to the teeth shifting back to their original positions, which can extend your treatment plan. Once your treatment is complete, we will provide you with a custom retainer to keep your teeth perfectly in place, which only needs to be worn at night.
