How Does Invisalign Work?

Post by : Dr. James Connan BChD GDC No. 230670 | 25 February 2023

Are you looking for a comfortable, discreet way to straighten your teeth? You’re in luck! Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic system that provides many adults and teens with beautiful smiles without the uncomfortable wires and brackets of traditional braces. Through personalised aligners specifically tailored to fit your mouth, Invisalign can safely and seamlessly move your teeth into their ideal position. But how exactly does it work? Read on to learn more about the Invisalign process and see if it could be right for you!

How Does it Work?

Invisalign treatment

The Invisalign treatment method uses a series of specially crafted aligners that are made of a powerful thermoplastic material. Each aligner straightens your teeth a little more than the last using controlled force. Depending on the type of problem you have, you’ll need to be treated for about six months minimum. The maximum amount of time that treatment takes is about three years.

When considering Invisalign treatment, it is critical to select an Invisalign orthodontist or dentist who has extensive experience with the product. Opt for a provider who specialises in this innovative technology for the best results.

With Invisalign, you don’t have to compromise your routines for an effective orthodontic treatment. Thanks to the removable design, gone are the days of putting daily activities on hold! You can play contact sports with a mouthguard and still enjoy all types of food by taking out your aligners before eating – no damage or hassle guaranteed.

Does it Really Work?

Invisible braces advantages

In general, this treatment method works very well. Whether or not it will work for you depends on a number of factors. Dental issues it can correct include the following:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in Teeth
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Other Issues

If you have an underbite or an overbite, then this treatment method will be able to fix these conditions as long as it’s not severe. Severe cases will require a different treatment method. If you have crowded teeth, gaps in your teeth, or if your teeth aren’t lined up properly, then it can help fix these conditions, too. Invisalign won’t work for very severe cases, so it’s important to be thoroughly evaluated by your trusted orthodontist Columbia SC team to make sure this is the right treatment plan for you. It’ll also completely fix your dental issues in an efficient manner if an experienced and skilled Carolina orthodontics team is treating you. Generally, it’s best to see an orthodontist when you are considering this treatment method because they are very skilled in this area of treatment. For best results, find an Invisalign Preferred Provider.

If you have crowded teeth and want to improve your smile please call our Invisalign dentist on 0208 399 4311
