One of the most popular orthodontic treatments, especially for adults, is Invisalign removable aligners. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign provides the distinct benefit of being removable. This of course has many upsides including the ability to eat whatever you want, maintain your oral health easily, and not worry about cosmetic changes to your smile.

Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are an orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, aligners are removable and similar in structure to retainers or mouth guards. Over the course of treatment, multiple sets of aligners are made. Patients wear the aligners almost all day (20 to 22 hours is recommended) and only remove the aligners to eat or brush and floss. The aligners slowly push and pull teeth into position. The aligner sets are designed to have mid points where a new aligner set is used.

What does Invisalign treat?

As orthodontic treatments aligners help improve the bite alignment of teeth and solve a variety of problems. For example, aligners can help address concerns with overbites and underbites as well as gaps between teeth or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatments have benefits that are both cosmetic and functional. While many patients are interested in straightening their smiles for the goal of a more symmetrical look, straight teeth can also help your oral health by preventing misalignment. Bite alignment ensures that pressure is evenly distributed and prevents issues with jaw pain.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign Aligners?

Many patients that might be interested in straightening their teeth might not be interested in traditional braces. Metal braces have some key drawbacks. First and foremost, patients often find them visually unappealing. Invisalign gets its name for how the aligners are clear and virtually invisible. Moreover, metal braces often require substantial changes to your diet and your oral care. Flossing can be especially difficult with traditional metal braces. Invisalign on the other hand doesn’t require as large of changes.

Are Invisalign Treatments Good For Kids & Teens?

Invisalign is often recommended for teenagers and adults. An important note on Invisalign is that the treatment only works if the patient is able to follow the 20-22 hour rule. One concern that an orthodontist or parent might have is that a child or teen will remove their Invisalign aligners for longer than two hours per day. It is important to make sure that kids and teens understand the responsibility and importance of adhering to those rules.
