Choosing Invisalign at Smile Dental Group means opting for a modern, discreet, and convenient way to straighten teeth.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to align and straighten teeth without the visible wires and brackets of traditional braces. It uses a series of clear, custom-fitted aligner trays that are virtually invisible, making it an attractive option for adults and teens who want a less obvious method of improving their smile.

These aligners use a flexible thermoplastic material uniquely crafted to fit the individual’s dental structure. Over time, these aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into their desired position based on the treatment plan developed by your dentist or orthodontist.

However, it’s important to note that this treatment may only be suitable for those with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Call us if you have severe misalignment or bite problems, so we can recommend the most suitable treatment for you.

Benefits of Wearing Invisalign

  • Nearly Invisible. Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisible when worn, making them a more aesthetically pleasing option for those self-conscious about wearing metal braces.

  • Removability. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners before eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing, promoting better oral hygiene and allowing more dietary freedom.

  • Comfort. With no metal brackets or wires, Invisalign aligners are generally more comfortable to wear. Their custom-fit design minimizes irritation to the cheeks and gums.

  • Fewer Office Visits. Invisalign treatment often requires fewer check-ups and adjustments than traditional braces, saving time and making it more convenient for busy schedules.

  • Customized Treatment. Each set of custom-made aligners can fit the patient’s teeth precisely and make incremental adjustments, ensuring a tailored approach to achieving the desired results.

  • No Dietary Restrictions. Since you can remove the aligners, there are no restrictions on what you can eat, unlike traditional braces where hard, sticky, or chewy foods are off-limits.

  • Less Risk of Injury. With no sharp edges or protruding metal bits, Invisalign aligners present a lower risk of injuring the mouth during physical activity or from the wear itself.

  • Discreet Treatment Process. Especially for adults and teens self-conscious about orthodontic treatment, Invisalign offers a discreet way to improve their smile without the stigma often associated with braces.

Tips for Maintaining Your Invisalign

If you want to ensure the effectiveness of your Invisalign treatment and maintain the health of your teeth, you must follow a proper care routine for your aligners. These can also help damage your aligners. Here are several key tips to help you:

Rinse Before Wearing

Always rinse your aligners with clean water before putting them back in your mouth. Doing so helps remove lingering debris or cleaning agent residues.

Avoid Heat

Keep your aligners away from high temperatures, as they can warp the plastic. Do not use hot water to clean them, and avoid leaving them in a hot car or near a heat source.

Store Properly

 When not wearing your aligners, store them in the protective case provided by your dentist. This prevents them from getting lost or damaged and also maintains their shape.

Minimize Removing

Though one of Invisalign’s benefits is removability, try to minimize how often you remove your aligners. Aim to wear them for 20-22 hours a day for optimal results, while removing them only for eating, drinking anything other than water, and your oral hygiene routine.

Avoid Harmful Substances

Do not eat or drink (except water) while wearing your aligners, as hot beverages and certain foods can stain or damage them. Also, avoid smoking or chewing gum while wearing the aligners, as these can cause discoloration and damage.

Timely Switching to New Aligners

 Follow your dentist’s schedule for changing to a new set of aligners. Progressing through the aligners as planned is crucial for the success of your treatment.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

Ensure you brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners. This prevents trapping food particles or plaque between your teeth and the aligners, reducing the risk of tooth decay and bad breath.
