Basics Of Clear Aligners
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of treatment that can be used to achieve a more beautiful smile. It can be utilized for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment and can also align the bite. Patients with an overbite, crossbite, or underbite can enjoy this treatment.
The process uses clear plastic aligner trays to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. Yiu wear your trays for at least 20 hours a day. The trays are easily removed, allowing patients to maintain their oral health and wellness, flossing and brushing as they normally would without having to worry about brackets and wires that can make it complicated.
The Basics Of Clear Aligners
How Does Invisalign Work?
First, patients book their consultation appointment. This visit allows for assessment of the patients’ smiles and decides if they are appropriate candidates for this treatment. If patients choose to move forward with this service to achieve the smile they desire, they then work with the dental team to complete a series of 3D digital impressions. These impressions create images that are sent to the Invisalign laboratories.
The team there will create a precision set of trays that will guide the patients through the process of enhancing their smiles. The number of trays in patients’ series will vary, depending on how severe the misalignment is. Patients return to the dental office to obtain their trays. During this time, the dentist will walk patients through the process of enhancing their smiles.
Patients start with the first tray and snap them over their natural teeth. You wear each tray for two weeks before patients progress to the next tray. By the end of the tray series, patients will have achieved their beautiful smiles!

Is This Treatment Right for Me?
Invisalign is a great option for patients who have minor-to-moderate orthodontic issues, such as slightly crooked teeth, small gaps, and other slight problems with alignment. However, we do not use it to treat major orthodontic issues like an open bite, a serious overbite or underbite, or extremely crooked, crowded, or rotated teeth. For patients with significant orthodontic issues, traditional braces may be a better alternative. To find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, schedule an appointment with My Dental Club.

The aligners are removable. You must wear them with discipline. Make sure you keep them in for at least 20 hours per day. Ideally, you should be wearing them for 22+ hours per day. Only remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss. If you do not wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day, your treatment may fall behind. This could cost you additional time and money. Make sure you can commit to wearing your aligners properly before you undergo treatment.
How often do I need to see the Dentist?
