How Invisalign Works
Unlike braces, which are attached to teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently move your teeth into proper position. Every two weeks, you insert a new aligner that will move your teeth closer to the smile you’ve always wanted.
People wear Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The average treatment time is about a year, although it can be shorter or longer depending on how much the teeth need to move.
Invisalign can treat a broad range of orthodontic problems including overly-crowded teeth, underbites, and deep bites. Our dentist in Fishkill will talk to you about your specific case and whether Invisalign is the best option.
Benefits of Invisalign
Many people choose to wear Invisalign instead of braces for aesthetic and lifestyle reasons. But there are also health benefits from having straighter teeth. Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crooked, crowded, or spaced too far apart. Since it’s easier to keep properly aligned teeth clean, the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease is less.
Here are some other benefits of Invisalign treatment:
- can treat a variety of spacing and bad bite problems
- aligners are practically invisible so people won’t know you’re wearing them
- aligners are comfortable
- aligners are lightweight
- aligners have no wires or brackets, so your mouth won’t get irritated
- aligners are removable:
- You remove the Invisalign aligners to eat and drink, so you can still enjoy all your favorite items.
- You remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth, which promotes good oral hygiene and fresh breath
- Invisalign office visits are only every four to six weeks, and the amount of time you spend in the dentitst’s chair is typically less than if you were getting braces adjusted.
