How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a method of orthodontic treatment that uses clear “aligners” or “trays” to guide the transformation of your teeth.

Each aligner is worn for 1 week, gradually shifting your teeth to their ideal positions. As you transition to a new set of aligners, the process is repeated. Over time, the clear aligners help correct crooked teeth, bite problems, spacing concerns, and more.

OrthoPulse

With Invisalign, you’re already on your way to a quicker transformation compared to traditional braces. But OrthoPulse helps speed up your treatment, so you can achieve a new smile in almost half the time. 

OrthoPulse is an FDA-cleared mouthpiece that uses the gentle power of low-intensity near-infrared light. OrthoPulse technology facilitates orthodontic tooth movement and enhances treatment comfort by increasing circulation to the roots of your teeth.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Discreet

Invisalign clear aligners are transparent, thin, and designed to be unnoticeable. Using Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without anybody knowing that you’re getting orthodontic care.

Comfortable

Invisalign has no metal wires, brackets, or other components that can poke, cut, or irritate your mouth, making it much more comfortable than braces.

Convenient

You can remove Invisalign to eat, which means you can keep eating your favorite foods. You also take out your Invisalign aligners to brush and floss, making it much easier to clean your teeth properly than braces.

What Can Invisalign Treat?

While early Invisalign treatments focused on addressing minor esthetic concerns like small gaps or crooked teeth, the latest Invisalign attachments now allow for the correction of more severe alignment concerns.

These attachments, like buttons crafted from composite resin, come in various shapes and sizes and are securely bonded to your tooth enamel. They assist with more complex tooth movements and bite alignments.

Here’s what Invisalign can help treat:

  • Gaps
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite

The Invisalign Treatment Process

In general, the duration of Invisalign treatment typically takes a year, although this timeline may differ based on your individual needs. 

Dr. Sweeney will work with you to help your progress stay on track. And we’re always here to provide support and share helpful tips along the way.

Take a look at our quick overview of what you can expect if you choose Invisalign at The Ivory.

Your Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation. Dr. Sweeney will assess your orthodontic needs and determine the suitability of Invisalign for you. She’ll capture a 3D scan of your teeth, unveiling a preview of your future smile.

Once approved for treatment, Dr. Sweeney will use the 3D scan to customize your first sets of aligners.

After a few weeks, it’s time to collect your initial 12 aligners and receive instructions on how to wear them. Then, you’ll head home to begin your treatment.

Each set of aligners is worn for 22 hours a day for about a week. Then, you’ll transition to a new set of aligners, like flipping the page of a weekly calendar. Every switch takes you closer to your dream smile.

Every 3 months, you’ll return to The Ivory Dental Co. in East Amherst. During this checkup, Dr. Sweeney will assess your progress and provide you with your next set of Invisalign aligners.

Even after completing your treatment, we’ll always be delighted to have you back for regular dental exams and preventive care.
