The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is an effective way to straighten your teeth without wearing metal braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. At Arch Dental, they are custom-made for each patient and are changed out every couple of weeks as your teeth gradually shift into place. It is a modern alternative to the traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are made from clear, flexible plastic and are custom-made to fit your mouth. Unlike metal braces, which are very noticeable, Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. 

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign process begins with a consultation with an orthodontist or dentist trained in Invisalign treatment. During this visit, the dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your smile goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right option. If you're a suitable candidate, the dentist will create a customized treatment plan based on your needs. After the treatment plan is established, your dentist will take digital scans or traditional impressions of your teeth. These records will be used to create a 3D digital model of your mouth. Using the 3D digital model, a series of custom-made aligners will be fabricated precisely for your teeth. Each aligner is slightly different from the previous one, designed to shift your teeth into the desired position over time gradually.

Once your aligners are ready, you will receive a set of them and instructions on how to wear and care for them. Depending on your treatment plan, you'll wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks. Wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours daily is essential; removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through each set of aligners, they will exert gentle and controlled force on your teeth, gradually moving them into the desired alignment. Your dentist will monitor your progress through periodic check-ups and provide new aligners as needed.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Improved Oral Health

Traditional metal braces can trap food particles between the brackets and wires, leading to plaque buildup and tooth decay. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners to brush and floss normally, which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

No Dietary Restrictions

Metal braces require patients to avoid certain foods that could damage their braces. With Invisalign, there are no dietary restrictions. You can eat whatever you want without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance.

Less Discomfort

Braces can cause discomfort and pain, mainly when applied or adjusted. Invisalign uses smooth plastic trays that move teeth gently and gradually over time, so there’s less discomfort than traditional braces.
