Invisalign straightens your teeth without braces. Patients wear a series of clear, removable liners custom-designed to fit and gradually straighten teeth.
The liners are made from Invisalign’s patented thermoplastic material, called SmartTrack®, created exclusively for Invisalign. These liners contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten, and because they’re clear and custom-made to fit snugly to your teeth, they’re virtually invisible.
Your orthodontist will create a digital treatment plan unique to your needs to chart a path to your best smile.
The first step to a new smile is always a consultation with a trusted orthodontist, like the professionals at Smile Orthodontics. Upon assessing your needs, your orthodontist will show you a complete treatment plan with a step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Your new aligners will be created when you and your orthodontist agree upon your plan. Wearing aligners 20-22 hours per day, taking them out only to eat and clean your teeth, offers the best results.
You will swap out your aligners every 1-2 weeks, following the developed treatment plan. These aligners gently and consistently adjust your teeth, gradually forming your new, perfect smile.
Patients choose Invisalign because they’re virtually invisible. You can remove them to eat or drink, brush and floss, or for a special event or occasion. Invisalign is gentle and gradual, adjusting your teeth without force or irritation.
You can clean your aligners with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste using lukewarm water or the Invisalign Cleaning System. Patients should brush after every meal before replacing their aligners to avoid staining from leftover food particles. Additionally, you should always ensure your aligners are clean before putting them back in your mouth.
Accidents happen, and if you break or lose an aligner, reach out to your orthodontist to stay on track with your treatment plan. Your orthodontist may advise you to use the previous or the next set of aligners or order replacements.
