How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of utilizing metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment uses custom-fitted plastic trays, similar to retainers, to gently and strategically shift your teeth into their ideal positions. Every two weeks, you’ll advance to your next series of aligners in your treatment, until you eventually complete the process and achieve your ideal results. Every six to eight weeks, depending on what we determine is best at your initial consultation, you’ll come in for a quick progress check and to pick up your next series of aligners in your treatment.

Indications for Invisalign

Many patients are surprised to learn that Invisalign treatment is a great solution for a wide variety of orthodontic issues, including some of the following that we’ve listed below.

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth can increase your risk of plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria accumulation in your mouth. By aligning them with Invisalign trays, you’ll be able to prevent common oral health problems like cavities from occurring.

Gaps Between Teeth

If you’re not a fan of having unevenly spaced teeth, and your orthodontic issue has begun to affect your self-confidence or oral health, Invisalign trays can close the gaps between your teeth, making your smile more symmetrical and even.

Bite Misalignment

Whether you have overbite, crossbite, or underbite, Invisalign trays can act to align your jaws and disperse bite force evenly across your mouth, preventing you from developing other conditions, like TMJ dysfunction and bruxism.

The Benefits of Invisalign

In-House Clear Retainers

One of the many benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are completely clear and comfortable. Once your treatment is done, you won’t want to switch to retainers that have noticeable brackets and wires. Instead, Dr. Rakowsky provides clear retainers that are created entirely in-house. They look, feel, and function just like Invisalign, however they are designed to protect your results. After investing your time and money in your Invisalign treatment, the last thing you want is to see your teeth drift out of place. That’s why Dr. Rakowsky’s clear retainers are the perfect solution – they are personalized, effective, and more affordable than other options.
