Is Invisalign
Right for You?
Invisalign orthodontic treatments are
just one of many options available for
straightening out teeth and correcting
bite alignments. The Invisalign treatment
process uses computer-generated
trays--customized aligners that fi t over
your teeth, much like a snug mouth
guard. While they are not for everyone,
they offer several advantages over other
options, such as wire braces.
Each Invisalign treatment follows a
customized plan. Typically, a dentist
begins treatment with X-rays, pictures,
and impressions of the patient's teeth.
The images are sent to the Invisalign
lab, which uses them to create a 3-D
image that helps the dentist map out
precise treatment plans to direct the
exact movements of their patient's teeth.
Trays are changed out every two weeks,
with each one helping shift the teeth
closer to the desired position.
Many patients choose Invisalign
because they are practically invisible
and do not affect speech as much as
wire braces. And while the trays are
intended to be worn 24 hours per day
during treatment, they can be removed
for short periods of time if necessary--

such as during a special event or when
eating. This can also be a downside,
as the patient's ability to interrupt the
process by removing the aligners could
impact the treatment.
Following treatment, retainers
are custom-made using the same
technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
The retainers are worn at night, similar
to other treatment processes.
While Invisalign is very effective at
correcting many tooth-alignment and
bite issues, the treatment is not for
everyone. Patients with complex issues
often opt for metal
braces, which are
more capable at

practitioner can
help you determine
if Invisalign is a
sensible option for
you.
