If you are considering getting braces, you might also look into Invisalign®️. Invisalign is an alternative to braces. This is sometimes a preferred option, as it’s less noticeable than traditional braces.

Keep in mind that Invisalign might not be the best fit for every person. Some people do better with traditional braces, while others might be good candidates for Invisalign. It’s important to consult with a dentist or an orthodontist to determine the best option for you and your needs.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses plastic aligners to shift the teeth into the right position in the mouth. The first step in the process is a consultation with a dentist who offers Invisalign near you. After your consultation, your dentist will create your custom aligners. You will try them out, and our dentist will ensure they fit your mouth correctly. In some cases, changes will be made to the aligners.

Once your aligners are ready to go, you can wear them. As you wear your aligners, you will need to go to the dentist for regular checkups. Our dentist will make sure everything is looking right with the aligners and may make adjustments if needed. At each appointment, you will get new aligners.

When Will You See Results from Invisalign?

Within six months, you will likely be able to see some results. Your overall results and how quickly you notice them depend on a couple of factors. For one, you have to wear your aligners as directed. Additionally, your results may vary depending on what your teeth looked like before starting Invisalign.

We also recommend that all of our Invisalign patients wear an Invisalign Vivera®️ retainer for maintenance. Our dentist near you can give you details about the retainer.
