Dental invisalign

If you imagine yourself fondly with straight teeth and a healthy smile, but don’t want to wear traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the right orthodontic treatment for you. These clear braces can correct an imperfect smile gradually and discreetly by the use of a series of removable aligner trays. Patients can eat and drink without restrictions, and dental care is easy. At Renken Dentistry in Springfield, IL, both adults and teens with crooked or misaligned teeth achieve great results with Invisalign.

How does Invisalign work?

Individual trays are worn for one to two-week spans before patients move up to the next aligner in the series. Each Invisalign tray is different than the last. Each applies a bit more pressure than the previous aligner to gently shift your teeth into an ideal position.

Trays are worn about 22 hours per day during the set treatment time. The clear braces are removed only to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. Since Invisalign is removable, it is much easier to keep your teeth and gums clean, and not have to live with food limitations.

Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you can remove them to eat and drink without restrictions or for special occasions. The clear aligners are virtually invisible to the naked eye, meaning you can show off your smile as it improves, without the distracting metal wires and brackets of traditional braces.

You should wear Invisalign at least 20-22 hours a day.

Your treatment time depends on your case.

Results are usually visible in the same amount of time as metal braces, but each Invisalign case is different; your treatment time will depend on the complexity of your case, and how well you consistently wear your aligners. However, on average, the Invisalign treatment lasts around a year for adults. The average treatment time varies for teenagers.
