Understanding Invisalign®

Posted .

If you are thinking about aligning your smile, then you have come to the right place! Did you know, Invisalign® can help you align your teeth discreetly? Well, it’s true! Traditional braces are obstructive and can make teens and adults feel self-conscious. However, if you talk to Dr. Steven Alexander about Invisalign, then you may not need to worry about traditional braces at all.


Invisalign is a new, modern approach to aligning teeth. Instead of bulky braces, Invisalign works using clear aligners, which is made of a clear plastic that snaps on and off your teeth, making them hard to be noticed by others. That way, you can get your smile straightened easily and quickly no matter if you are in the school environment or the work environment.


The process of Invisalign begins with a complete 3D scanning of your teeth. From the scan, clear aligners can be customized to fit your teeth perfectly. About every two weeks, you trade your current aligner in for a new one, as each set of aligners will gently push your teeth into the ideal alignment.


Even though Invisalign could slowly move your teeth into place over time, the process of Invisalign is often much faster than traditional braces. Not every smile can work with Invisalign, which is why it’s important to get an evaluation to find out if it is right for you.
