How Does Invisalign Work?
Unlike traditional braces with metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place. Each aligning tray represents a different stage of treatment, and you’ll move on to the next in the series after about 2 weeks. It’s important that you wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day to ensure that the treatment is most effective. Typically, Invisalign will take between 6 and 18 months to complete, and your treatment time will all depend on your specific smile. Plus, the aligning trays are completely removeable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your orthodontics.
Invisalign Teen Clear Aligners
We also offer Invisalign Teen—the most popular treatment for high schoolers. The teen years are some of the most socially awkward times in your son or daughter’s life, which is why they may not want to add braces into the mix. However, we offer Invisalign Teen to give your kids a chance to get an amazingly straight smile without the appearance and discomfort of braces. The only difference between Invisalign Teen and regular Invisalign is that these aligners come with small blue dots that change colors based on how much they’re worn. That way, parents can tell exactly how much their kids have been wearing them. Additionally, we provide a few extra aligners because let’s face it, teens are more likely to lose or break one!
How You Can Benefit from Acceledent
One of the main factors that hold patients back from getting the straight smile of their dreams is time. Invisalign, even though it has a shorter treatment time than braces, can be a long commitment. However, we offer Acceledent as a solution. This amazing technology uses gentle vibrations sent through a mouthpiece that speeds up the movement of your teeth, potentially cutting your treatment time in half. This works by accelerating a process called bone remodeling, which allows your teeth to shift more easily into an aligned position.
