Invisalign is a type of orthodontic therapy that gradually straightens your teeth over six to 18 months, though many cases at Madison Avenue Dentists, PC, often take as few as three to eight months.
Unlike conventional braces, which use metal wires and brackets to straighten teeth, Invisalign relies on custom-made, clear aligners. These aligners are designed to fit your unique bite as your teeth continue to straighten.
What makes Invisalign aligners unique is that they’re clear and removable, giving you the freedom to smile and eat your favorite foods with confidence as you improve your teeth.
When compared to conventional braces, Invisalign clear aligners offer several benefits, such as:
Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, you can take them out when you eat your favorite foods. This means you never have to avoid eating a particular treat because you don’t want it to get stuck in your braces.
Invisalign isn’t fixed to your teeth like conventional braces. You can take the aligners out for approximately two hours a day if you feel like your teeth need a break.
Clear aligners are just that: clear. Invisalign is also custom-designed to fit your teeth perfectly, so you may not even be able to tell you’re wearing them.
You must take your clear aligners out to brush and floss your teeth, which can be challenging to maintain with conventional braces.
On average, Invisalign takes about six to 18 months, compared to conventional braces’ period of 18 months to three years.
Madison Avenue Dentists, PC, is a proud Invisalign provider. When creating your individualized treatment, the team maps out your plan with digital impressions — eliminating the need for messy clay impressions — and Invisalign’s proprietary 3D software.
This software designs a plan that’s unique to you. Every two weeks, you receive a new set of aligners that have small adjustments that place precise points of pressure on your teeth to shift them into alignment.
An excellent way to restore your confidence, Invisalign clear aligners must be worn for 22 hours a day, though you can take them out to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth.
The Madison Avenue Dentists, PC, team advises you to come into the office for regular dental exams and routine cleanings, as orthodontic therapy makes your teeth more prone to cavities and discoloration.
