Invisalign – An Invisible Alternative To Braces

Rather than using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses “clear braces”, or plastic aligners, to shift your teeth gradually, correcting crooked or misaligned teeth.

Dr. Hope will take impressions of your teeth and send them to Invisalign where specialized software is used to create a comprehensive treatment plan and customized set of aligners. You will wear each aligner for 2 weeks before it’s replaced with your next set. You’ll also need to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing it only when you eat, drink, brush or floss.

The gentle pressure of Invisalign plastic aligners shifts your teeth gradually, minimizing pain and discomfort. This system is capable of providing the same results as traditional bracket-and-wire metal braces, when worn correctly. But treatment time varies depending on the patient. Most patients use a set of 20-30 Invisalign aligners over the course of their treatment. And most cases are completed in about a year.

Regular 6-week checkups with Dr. Hope ensure that your aligners are working properly, and that your treatment is progressing according to the outlined orthodontic plan.

Benefits of Invisalign

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign has quite a few benefits. First, Invisalign is nearly invisible. Coworkers, friends, acquaintances; nobody has to know that you’re undergoing treatment!

Not only that, Invisalign is comfortable. Metal braces are known to chafe and poke the lips and mouth. Between hard metal, rubber bands and the wax they give you to ease discomfort, traditional metal braces are a handful. Invisalign is easy. By applying gentle pressure to shift teeth, the changes feel much more gradual. Other than some mild discomfort in the first few days of wearing a new aligner, you’ll hardly feel the transformation.

It’s also easier to maintain your oral health with a removable system. There are no brackets or wires to get in the way of your brushing and flossing routine.
