What is Invisalign?

Offering a subtle alternative to braces, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to correct crooked teeth and align your bite. This form of braces gives you the option to improve your smile without the discomfort and aesthetic concerns of traditional braces.

Patients at Viva Smile prefer Invisalign because, unlike traditional braces, most people don’t notice your Invisalign aligners when you wear them unless they look very closely.

Invisalign also gives you the flexibility to remove your aligners to enjoy your food of choice, brush your teeth and floss, or leave them at home for a special occasion. However, to ensure you receive the most effective treatment, you should wear your Invisalign trays for at least 20 hours a day.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Viva Smile offers Invisalign to help patients achieve the smile they desire. In addition to providing a subtle appearance, Invisalign has several other benefits, as well, such as:

  • Lack of visibility
  • Easily removable
  • Faster process than regular braces
  • Less discomfort and irritation
  • Fewer visits to the dentist's office

Because Invisalign aligners are made of plastic, rather than metal, you avoid the irritation or cuts and scrapes that you sometimes form in your mouth from wearing traditional braces.

How does Invisalign work?

Viva Smile uses Invisalign to treat dental conditions like crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, crooked teeth, and gaps in your teeth.

When you arrive for your appointment at Viva Smile, your dentist evaluates your mouth to assess potential dental complications and determine the best treatment for your teeth.

Upon deciding that Invisalign is the right option for you, your dentist creates a treatment plan specific to your needs. They begin by taking impressions of your teeth to create the right fit for your aligners. After this, they’ll have you return to the office every couple of weeks to replace your Invisalign tray and continue shifting your teeth into alignment.

Once you complete your treatment plan, your dentist fits your teeth for a retainer to help you maintain the results of your straightened teeth.
