Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten the teeth. At Smile Center Silicon Valley, these aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth and feel comfortable when you wear them.
Unlike metal braces or other orthodontic appliances, Invisalign aligners are less noticeable. Because they are made from smooth materials and fit snugly around your teeth, you will not have any issues with irritation as you would with the wires and brackets of braces. Invisalign is an excellent option if you want to avoid the hassle of traditional braces without compromising the effectiveness of your treatment.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign aligners are made from a transparent, BPA-free plastic material. They are custom-made to fit your teeth and are virtually invisible when worn. This makes Invisalign popular for patients who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with our experienced dentist who is an Invisalign provider. They will assess your dental condition and create a personalized treatment plan. Advanced 3D imaging technology is used to create a virtual representation of your teeth and plan the precise movements needed to achieve the desired results.
Based on the treatment plan, a series of aligners will be created for you. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. Gradually, the aligners apply gentle and controlled force, shifting the teeth into their desired positions.
With Invisalign, maintaining good oral hygiene is easier compared to traditional braces. Since the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would without any obstructions from brackets and wires. However, it's essential to clean your aligners regularly as well.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them a discreet treatment option. Unlike traditional braces with visible brackets and wires, Invisalign allows patients to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic appliances. This can be particularly beneficial for adults and individuals concerned about the bulky look of traditional braces.
Removable and Convenient
Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing patients to take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This convenience means that dietary restrictions associated with traditional braces are not necessary. It also makes oral hygiene maintenance easier, as patients can brush and floss their teeth without any obstructions from brackets and wires.
Comfort and Smooth Design
Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic material, which makes them more comfortable than traditional braces that have wires and brackets that can cause discomfort or irritation. The aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over the teeth, reducing the likelihood of gum and cheek irritation.
