How Does Invisalign Work?
Wasilla, AK

Smiling woman with brown hair putting clear aligners into her mouth at Aurora Dental Care in Wasilla, AKInvisalign is a clear aligner that is used to straighten the teeth. It is primarily applied in orthodontics; however, they can be applied by a dentist or orthodontist. Invisalign is created in a dental lab using impressions taken from the patient. The aligners will fit comfortably over your teeth to straighten them over time. Unlike traditional braces, which utilize fixed wires to straighten the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays to gradually and gently move your teeth into a new and intended alignment. Invisalign can repair crowded teeth, gap teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite.

Who are Invisalign Candidates?

Anyone who wishes to straighten their teeth and improve their smile should consider Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligners are often used for teenagers and adults, since they address a variety of dental misalignments. The clear aligner trays are simple to use and have a quicker treatment time than traditional braces. Anyone who wants a dazzling smile but doesn't want to wear noticeable metal braces can consider Invisalign.

Invisalign is not recommended for patients who desire to correct their molars and premolars, or who have more severe malocclusions. You should seek advice from our dentists on the best way to align your teeth.

The Invisalign Procedure

Your dentist will gather information from you, including reviewing your dental history. They will then explain the Invisalign treatment and how the transparent aligners function. Your dentist will also perform a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth, and face and take photos from multiple viewpoints. If necessary, the dentist will take X-rays and do additional testing. They will then take impressions of your teeth to create your clear aligners.

Once you receive your aligner trays, the dentist will make sure they fit you properly. You will wear your clear aligners for 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and drink, or to brush your teeth.

You may initially feel slight discomfort with your new aligner trays, but you will adapt to them over time. Invisalign does move your teeth more gently than metal braces and wires do. Additionally, you may feel increased tooth sensitivity, which will fade over time. Furthermore, the trays might slightly affect your pronunciation for the first few weeks. Your dentist will provide instructions on how to care for your Invisalign.

Invisalign Advantages

Clear aligners have a lot of advantages. The first and most important benefit of Invisalign is its aesthetic value. Many people prefer invisible aligners to braces because the clear aligner trays are less noticeable. Second, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them out at any time. This will allow you to brush your teeth easier than would be the case with metal brackets glued to your teeth. There are also no food restrictions with Invisalign.

Unlike metal braces and wires, clear aligners' texture is similar to your natural teeth, making them more comfortable. Invisalign also requires fewer orthodontic appointments and repairs than traditional braces.
