Invisalign is a great alternative for people who do not like the appearance of braces. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible and this makes it a very popular option for both teens and adults.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign involves wearing a series of aligners which are changed every two weeks. As patients replace their aligners their teeth are moved gradually into the desired position. The aligners are worn at all times except when eating, drinking, flossing and brushing. Invisalign allows patients to eat and drink as normal as it does not have the wires and brackets associated with braces.
Invisalign is a computer generated aligner system, which allows patients to see their step by step progress. Patients can see their virtual 3D treatment plan, seeing what their teeth will look like at different times during treatment.
Invisalign treatment time can be reduced by up to 30% with the use of AcceleDent. AcceleDent consists of a vibrating mouthpiece that is worn daily for 20 minutes. It uses patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and the surrounding bone causing no discomfort. When using AcceleDent with Invisalign, aligners can usually be changed every week rather than every fortnight.
The benefits of Invisalign are:
- Aligners are virtually invisible
- They are easy to clean and can be removed when brushing and flossing
- There are no restrictions in diet as aligners are removed to eat and drink
- Treatment time is reduced with the use of AcceleDent
