What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses custom-fitted aligners to gradually shift and straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is a clear aligner system that’s easily removable for daily activities, like eating and brushing your teeth. 
The treatment involves aligners that you switch out approximately every two weeks to shift teeth into their desired positions gradually. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults and teens who want to improve their smiles without metal braces.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional braces for straightening teeth. Invisalign offers many benefits, making oral hygiene easy while receiving orthodontic treatment. For example, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed, allowing you to brush and floss with ease.
Additionally, as a gold-level provider, the Mowry Dental team creates custom aligners for each individual for a comfortable fit. The Invisalign process is easy, so it’s no surprise many people choose it over traditional braces for a more comfortable and discreet orthodontic treatment option.

How do I care for my teeth with Invisalign?

When undergoing Invisalign treatment, it’s important to maintain proper oral hygiene to prevent dental concerns, such as gum disease. 
Brush your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. It’s also important to floss to remove stubborn food particles and plaque trapped between your teeth.
Clean your Invisalign aligners regularly with a gentle toothbrush and Invisalign cleaning crystals. Rinse your mouth and aligners after eating or drinking anything other than water.
By following these steps, you can ensure effective Invisalign treatment and increase the longevity of your aligners.

How long will I need to wear Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment duration varies depending on your teeth and alignment goals. The average treatment length is 12-18 months, but some individuals may require longer treatment if the Mowry Dental team thinks they need additional adjustments. 
The treatment duration depends on the misalignment’s severity and your commitment to wearing the aligners as prescribed. You should wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day and switch them out every 1-2 weeks to keep the treatment on track. Schedule regular check-ups with Mowry Dental to monitor your progress and make adjustments.
