Are My Teeth Too Crooked for Invisalign?

Invisalign® is a clear alternative to braces. This orthodontic solution utilizes smooth plastic aligner trays to gently push teeth into their desired positions over time. Each set of trays is worn for one to two weeks at a time before progressing to the next set in the series.

The aligners are specifically designed to make small adjustments to your teeth with each tray progression. When you first put on a new set of trays, they will feel slightly tight and uncomfortable. Once the teeth have shifted into alignment with the tray, it’s time to pick up your next set so your treatment can progress!

Benefits of Invisalign

Patients love Invisalign because:

  • Aligners are taken out to eat, brush, and floss for simplified oral care compared to braces
  • Clear trays are discreet
  • 12-18 months average treatment time
  • Smooth plastic doesn’t irritate cheeks or gums
