Does Invisalign Really Work?

April 3, 2018

Man in dental chair giving thumbs upIn short, yes it does. However, no treatment is right for every patient. If you’re interested in learning more about Invisalign, read this post. We’ll walk you through some of the basics. If you’re ready to find out whether or not Invisalign is the best treatment to meet your unique needs, find an Invisalign provider in Lake Forest to schedule your Invisalign consultation. During a consultation appointment, your dentist will examine your smile and help you determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alignment tray orthodontic system. Aligners are molded to represent the smile one step closer to the ideal positioning. Patients wear these aligners for about two weeks, and then, the current set is exchanged for the next set in the series. Every six to eight weeks, you will need to visit the dentist, so your progress can be checked. We want to ensure your smile is moving according to plan. In eight to eighteen months, patients should achieve their desired smile alignment results.

Why Should I Use Invisalign?

There is no one perfect treatment for every patient, but for those who decided Invisalign is right for them, there are numerous advantages, including:

  • Faster overall treatment time compared with traditional braces and fewer dental office appointments throughout orthodontic alignment.
  • No changes to diet or oral hygiene routines are necessary with removable alignment trays. Simply take out your aligners during meals or while cleaning your smile.
  • There’s no need to worry about your appearance throughout treatment. Your Invisalign tray will blend flawlessly into your natural smile.
  • Patients with allergies or sensitivities to metal will be able to comfortably shift teeth without worrying about discomfort that can occur when using traditional bracket and wire braces. Even if you don’t have metal allergies, brackets and wires can irritate the soft tissue inside your mouth.
