What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Many people, both teens and adults, could benefit from orthodontic treatment to correct misaligned teeth or bite issues. However, many also avoid seeking this treatment, as they are concerned about the look of wearing braces, or fear discomfort.

Invisalign clear aligners are now available as an alternative to traditional metal or ceramic braces, to address these concerns.

What is an Invisalign Treatment?

An Invisalign orthodontic treatment uses a series of custom-made, transparent aligners to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and very discreet. The aligners are made from a comfortable, smooth, BPA-free plastic material.

An Invisalign treatment consists of a series of these aligners that are designed to be worn in a set sequence, with each aligner tray gradually bringing teeth closer to the desired alignment.

What Do Invisalign Treatments Address?

An Invisalign treatment can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Overbites and Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Gaps, Spacing, and Crowdedness

Invisalign aligners effectively straighten misaligned and crooked teeth by applying gentle pressure to move teeth into the desired alignment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained orthodontist or dentist. This includes an assessment of your oral health, digital impressions or scans of your teeth, and discussing your smile goals. The orthodontist or dentist then creates a custom treatment plan.

Benefits of Invisalign Aligners

In addition to the benefits of the orthodontic treatment and teeth-straightening to correct dental issues, Invisalign clear aligners offer advantages to other braces and orthodontic options.

Invisalign Treatment Cost

An individual's Invisalign aligners cost will vary, depending on several factors, including the severity of that person's orthodontic issues, location, and other factors. The more severe the orthodontic concerns, the longer the treatment will be, so more trays will be needed. In general, the Invisalign cost is comparable to traditional braces, however.
