What are the benefits Invisalign offers compared to typical orthodontic treatments?

-Invisalign provides a comfortable experience because the appliance is smooth plastic, with no metal or sharp edges.
-Invisalign allows you to eat what you want, without worrying about food catching in your braces.
-Invisalign is convenient because you can remove the appliance when you want.
-Invisalign is healthy because you can brush and floss normally without using cumbersome threaders and tools.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is made up of a series of clear thermoplastic aligners that are customized to fit over your teeth. These aligners look similar to whitening trays and each aligner is specifically designed to shift certain teeth throughout the course of your treatment. Once we decide that Invisalign is right for you, we will map out your treatment plan, which we will then send to an Invisalign lab so they can begin designing your aligners.
Besides being discreet, these aligners are also removable. This means that you won’t have to worry about adhering to a strict diet, as you would with traditional braces. You won’t have to worry that certain foods will damage brackets or wire. Just remove your aligners prior to mealtime and you’re all set.
The same goes for your oral care routine. Just remove your aligners prior to brushing and flossing. It’s that simple. Now you won’t have to worry about carefully trying to brush around your traditional braces, where food and bacteria can easily hide. Flossing can also be a challenge with these orthodontic systems, but Invisalign makes it easy to continue caring for your teeth and gums without changing your daily routine. Invisalign fits seamlessly into your lifestyle.
How Does Invisalign Help?
Invisalign aligner trays are designed to gently force your teeth to conform to their shape over a specific period of time—usually six to 12 months. Once the first tray does its job, it’s time to wear the next one—this process continues every two weeks or so. After your dentist confirms that the treatment is complete, you’ll use the final aligner tray as your retainer every night while sleeping.
What does the process of straightening my teeth with Invisalign entail?
Treatment begins with your dentist at Bridgeman Dental providing you with your first set of custom appliances, called aligners. You wear these aligners for two weeks and then switch to another set, changing aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position. After nine to fifteen months, you will have a straight, beautiful smile, thanks to Invisalign.
What does Invisalign treat?
Just like other orthodontic methods, Invisalign can correct crowded, overlapped, widely spaced or rotated teeth. Treatment can also correct major bite issues like underbite, overbite, crossbite and open bite.
Invisalign is innovative and revolutionary because it is the most comfortable, discreet way to give you the straight smile you want. You don’t have to settle for old methods of orthodontic treatment when you can have the most modern, high-tech way to have a great smile.
