The popularity of clear aligners is outstanding and keeps growing. More and more patients come into our office asking for Invisalign by name. We are top providers of Invisalign and are able to offer this extraordinary treatment option to treat complicated cases and patients of all ages. So, how do you know if aligners are right for you?

The basics

Invisalign treatment is very different from treatment with any other type of braces. It uses 3D imaging and technology to create a series of aligners that gradually move teeth to achieve an ideal smile. Depending on the treatment plan, patients will switch to a new set of aligners every week or two.

Appearance & aesthetics

If the appearance of traditional braces is a concern, clear aligners may be a good option. Clear aligners are the most discreet option for orthodontic treatment. They are essentially invisible even when being worn, and it is likely that no one will even know you’re wearing them!

Made for any lifestyle

Braces can mean a change in diet and lifestyle. We have found that clear aligners fit seamlessly into almost any lifestyle, which is why we offer this option to patients of all ages. Since the aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss like you normally would. They are a great fit for patients that are apprehensive about braces.

Concerns about time

Clear aligner treatments can work just as fast (or even faster) than traditional braces, cutting down the overall treatment time. They also require fewer office visits because there are no wires to tighten. Most of the work with adjusting aligners is done at the very beginning of treatment when we fine-tune the imaging and aligners to achieve our desired results. When patients come in for visits, we make sure that the teeth are moving as expected and your smile is coming along how we want it to.

We also find that patients with clear aligners don’t come in nearly as much for “emergency” visits because there is less chance for breaking appliances, and patients experience far less discomfort with aligners.

It is important to keep in mind that aligners are only a tool. Your treatment results will highly depend on the ability of the doctor treating you, and that is why we recommend that you trust your smile to an orthodontist.

At our office, almost any case can be treated with Invisalign, and we love offering it to patients as a subtle but highly effective option. We have had so much success with this treatment method. Come in for a consultation to see if Invisalign is right for you!
