Invisalign is a very popular way to correct the alignment of crooked or crowded teeth. Our patients like Invisalign because the aligner trays are removable, so their oral hygiene isn’t hampered by having to work around unattractive brackets and wires. Invisalign treatment is referred to as a cosmetic orthodontic treatment because when worn, it is nearly invisible. The clear aligner trays must be worn consistently in order to work, upwards of 22 hours each day. The aligners are taken out when eating or drinking anything but clear liquids.
The great majority of patients are candidates for Invisalign. The important thing to consider is what your expectations are for your treatment. As dentists, we care about the proper alignment of teeth so that the supporting bone and surrounding soft tissues are healthy. We want the teeth to work together without causing excessive and premature wear. Properly aligned teeth exist in a healthier environment.
