Invisalign is an innovative and convenient orthodontic treatment used to straighten teeth without the need for traditional metal braces. It employs a sequence of translucent custom-made aligners that gradually shift the teeth into the desired position over time. Each aligner set is worn approximately 22 hours a day but can be removed for meals, brushing, and flossing. Every two weeks, the aligners are switched out for a new set, which continues to shift the teeth closer to optimal alignment. Invisalign’s discreet appearance and removable nature make it a comfortable, convenient, and highly effective method of teeth straightening that can help correct and prevent functional problems while creating a beautifully balanced, even smile you will love showing to the world.
The Invisalign system carries several advantages that make it a highly attractive alternative to traditional braces:
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, making them a discreet option for individuals who want to maintain a more aesthetically pleasing appearance during orthodontic treatment.
The aligners are removable, allowing you to more easily maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
Because they are precision-crafted from smooth plastic, the aligners are less likely to irritate the soft tissues of the mouth than traditional braces.
Invisalign uses advanced computer imaging to plan and visualize the progression of tooth movement, helping to ensure perfect alignment and letting you anticipate the final results of your treatment.
Invisalign can address a wide range of orthodontic issues, from mild to moderate crowding, spacing, and bite alignment problems.
No Dietary Restrictions
Unlike braces, there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign since the aligners are removed while eating. This minimizes the risk of food getting stuck or damaging the appliances.
Less Impact on Activities
Invisalign aligners can be removed for special occasions, sports, or musical activities where traditional braces might pose challenges.
These benefits make Invisalign a popular choice for teeth straightening. However, more severe alignment problems or issues with bite may require correction with metal braces. Dr. Borzoo will carefully assess your teeth to determine that Invisalign is the most effective option for your needs before moving forward with treatment.
Invisalign is an excellent choice for most teeth-straightening patients, but it may not be effective for correcting certain types of alignment issues. Dr. Borzoo will carefully examine your teeth to ensure that Invisalign is a good option, as well as provide you with a clear idea of the results you can expect from treatment. Schedule your consultation today to have all of your questions answered and begin your journey to your most beautiful smile under Dr. Borzoo’s highly skilled and compassionate care.
Designing your individual aligner trays begins with a digital scan of your teeth. This information is sent to a lab to aid in the creation of a series of clear plastic trays, which you will switch out approximately once every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position with each new tray. The clear aligner is to be worn 22 hours a day and removed only for meals, brushing, and flossing. The clear plastic design makes the aligner trays virtually invisible. The last tray in the series is designed to guide your teeth into their final, optimally aligned position. This entire process may take anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the degree of correction needed.
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you will attend regularly scheduled checkups with Dr. Borzoo to ensure your treatment is going smoothly. Inserting a new Invisalign tray may cause initial pressure or discomfort as your teeth adjust. Soreness is usually mild and temporary, fading within days as your mouth adapts. Consistency in wearing the aligners is imperative for achieving optimal results. If you have questions between visits, never hesitate to contact our office.
Invisalign treatment can lead to significant improvements in your teeth alignment and overall smile aesthetics. It can effectively address issues like crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. At the end of your treatment, functional issues caused by problems like overcrowding will be improved, and your smile will be more balanced and even, enhancing your entire facial appearance. Dr. Borzoo will provide guidance for maintaining your results, including wearing a retainer to help your teeth stay in their optimal position for a straight, sparkling smile for years to come.
Invisalign results are not considered entirely permanent because of the effects of natural aging and habits that might influence alignment over time. However, results can be very long-lasting with consistent retainer wear and follow-up care.
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment. Each custom-made aligner is worn for about 20 to 22 hours a day, with slight adjustments in shape to encourage the controlled movement of teeth over time.
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies, averaging 12 to 18 months. Complex cases may take longer. Dr. Borzoo will provide a personalized timeline based on your specific needs.
