How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a dental treatment option designed to straighten your smile using a series of clear plastic aligners. Each aligner in the series is customized to fit your unique bite and provide optimal results over a period of time. These aligners lack metal brackets and wires, making oral hygiene much simpler and easier compared to traditional braces.

At Dream Smiles, our team works with adults and responsible teens looking to fix mild to moderate bite and alignment issues. Invisalign also works well if your alignment has relapsed after initial orthodontic treatment. We'll walk with you throughout the treatment process so you know what to anticipate and are confident about the process. Our treatments typically take between 12-18 months. If you have a more complex or severe misalignment issue, we also provide a variety of other orthodontic treatments that can help you achieve your ideal smile.

What Does Invisalign Do?

Our team at Dream Smiles gives you the treatment you can count on to achieve your desired results. While our practice offers traditional braces as an alternative, Invisalign treatment is an effective solution for fixing mild and moderate bite and alignment conditions. Once our dentist determines you're a good candidate for Invisalign services, we provide the treatment to resolve the following dental issues:

  • Crooked Teeth: Invisalign can fix misaligned teeth that can impact the function of your bite and the appeal of your smile.
  • Crowded Teeth: Invisalign also corrects cramped, twisted, or overlapped teeth that occur when your jaw size can't accommodate them as they grow.
  • Unwanted Gaps: If you have separated teeth that cause visible gaps in your smile, impacting its aesthetics and function, Invisalign can help.
  • Overbites: Invisalign corrects overlapped teeth that hang over the bottom teeth to create an uneven bite.
  • Underbites: If you have overlapped bottom teeth positioned slightly ahead of your top teeth, Invisalign can bring them into position.

Our Invisalign Process

At Dream Smiles, our team begins every Invisalign service with a thorough assessment of your dental health to improve the efficacy of the desired treatment. Once we've determined you're a good candidate for Invisalign, our dentist will take high-quality impressions of your teeth. We send these impressions to a trusted local lab, where your custom aligners are crafted to match your teeth.

When you finally pick up your Invisalign trays, our dentist will explain the instructions for wearing the aligners. Be sure to follow our guidelines as closely as possible to improve your chances of success. You will return to our practice in 4-6 weeks so we can examine your progress and make any modifications as needed.

Why Straighten Your Teeth?

Having straight teeth does more than boost your smile appeal. When your teeth are in a proper position, you can enjoy better dental health, comfort, and function. Your teeth will also be easier to clean through brushing and flossing.

Moreover, ideal spacing between your teeth allows you to eliminate food particles and plaque more effectively. This helps reduce your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Our team at Dream Smiles can help with dental spacing and proper positioning with Invisalign treatment.
