A Simple Approach to Straighter Teeth
Overall, the Invisalign® process is relatively simple. Trays are custom-fitted to your teeth and
every few weeks, these trays are switched out for the next set, similar
to having your braces tightened. Your teeth gradually shift to accommodate
these new aligners. Your orthodontist will develop a specific plan of
treatment that best serves your changing mouth.
Most patients report that the Invisalign® aligners have given them little to no discomfort. While wearing the aligners,
you can eat and talk without hindrance. If you play an instrument with
a mouthpiece, you may need to remove the trays to avoid breaking them
or hindering your ability to play.
Invisalign® is may not be the best option for patients who experience pain in their
jaw. This usually signifies a deeper bite problem that would be better
served by a more intensive orthodontic procedure. Invisalign® is also not recommended for patients whose top and bottom teeth will not
line up vertically without the intervention of bands and braces.
