How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners are a great choice for patients searching for a more discreet teeth straightening option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. You will switch sets of aligners about every two weeks; as you do, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. Regular office visits during treatment will ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign clear aligners for teeth?

In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentists may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct the following:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite

During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients who are willing and able to keep aligners in for most of the day and night. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom-made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable to enable normal eating, flossing, and brushing.

Clear aligners vs. braces

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, offer several advantages over traditional braces:

  • Discreet appearance
  • More comfortable, less irritation
  • Removable, allowing for greater convenience when eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Enables better dental hygiene during treatment

However, there are some cons to clear aligners compared to traditional braces. In fact, the ability to remove clear aligners can be a con as much as it is a pro:

  • Risk of loss when removed
  • Risk of non-compliance and inefficient treatment (if the user does not wear them as directed)
  • Not ideal for children who may be tempted to remove them
  • Generally more expensive than traditional braces
  • Severe or complex orthodontic cases may not be a good fit
