How Invisalign Works

The FDA-approved clear braces system uses a series of plastic aligners to place focused pressure on different parts of the arch throughout treatment. Invisalign relies on the proven orthodontic principles of producing gradual movement through sustained pressure, but without the noticeable hardware required by conventional braces.

Invisalign trays are created specifically for your unique smile. Once you begin treatment, you need to wear each tray for the recommended 20 to 22 hours each day. Switch to the next aligner in the series every two weeks, gradually progressing through treatment until you achieve your ideal results.

Just like with traditional braces, you will need to wear a retainer after the Invisalign treatment is complete. Fortunately, the Vivera retainer is just as discreet as your Invisalign trays, so you can continue to smile confidently while maintaining your beautiful results.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign and traditional metal braces are both designed to realign smiles. Although they work to achieve the same goal, they are vastly different in their look, feel, and process.

One of the most obvious differences is their aesthetics. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that are virtually undetectable. Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires that stand out. With Invisalign, you can feel more confident in your appearance when your aligners are in or out of your mouth.

Another advantage is the flexibility of Invisalign. Instead of wearing braces that are affixed to the surfaces of your teeth, clear braces are removable. This means that when you eat, drink, or clean your teeth, you must remove your trays. Not only does this allow you to maintain better oral health, but you will also avoid damaging your trays when eating the foods you love.

This is a benefit many patients miss out on when wearing regular braces simply because certain foods must be avoided during treatment. It can be hard to give up corn on the cob, fresh apples, or other similar foods, which is why many choose Invisalign.
