Many of today’s orthodontic patients are looking for treatment options that offer more convenient and discretion than traditional metal braces. Because of this, Invisalign clear aligners are quickly becoming a favorite option among orthodontics patients of all ages. Experience the convenience and discretion of Invisalign clear aligners at Westchase Premier Dental with our veteran orthodontics team!

As you can guess by their name, the Invisalign system leverages a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible, even from a conversational distance. They’re constructed of a near invisible plastic material that is still incredibly durable, with each set of aligners gradually moving your teeth into the desired final position. One of the best aspects of the Invisalign system is that this treatment does not require any temporarily-permanent hardware, brackets or wires as is the case with traditional braces options – these aligners are removable, and can be removed whiners eating, drinking, or brushing. It’s important to note, however, that these aligners should be worn as much as possible in order to achieve the optimal results. Advantages of the Invisalign system include:

  • More Convenience In Oral Hygiene — Given that each set of Invisalign aligners is fully removable, there are no brackets are wires to brush and floss around when brushing and flossing. caring for your teeth is more convenient with Invisalign than with traditional braces, helping you best care for your smile during your orthodontic treatment!
  • More Discretion — Some patients, especially adult orthodontic patients, prefer a more discreet option compared to traditional metal braces, especially in a professional setting. If you feel that a fully-discreet look would best suit you during your treatment, Invisalign is for you!
  • Fewer Dietary Restrictions — With traditional metal braces, there are many foods that must be avoided to keep food particles from being stuck between wires and brackets. With Invisalign, there is no need to avoid these foods!
  • More Comfort Than Traditional Braces — Many orthodontic patients may experience the rubbing of their brackets or loose wires along the soft inner tissues of their mouth. Given that Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, clear plastic, this irritation does not occur, making clear aligners a more comfortable orthodontic option!
  • Doubles as a Defense Against Teeth-Grinding — For patients who tend to grind their teeth at night, Invisalign aligners offer protection against teeth grinding by providing your teeth with a protective layer. They therefore serve the dual-purpose of being an orthodontic appliance as well as a night guard.

The Invisalign System

Invisalign clear aligners work in the same manner as traditional braces, as they apply pressure to the teeth to subtly move teeth into their desired final position. The difference is in their material, with metal being swapped out for soft plastic. Your series of aligners is created using digital rendering software that determines how each set of aligners should be crafted to slowly move your teeth into the desired final position. Each set of aligners does its part to achieve the final result, with the total tooth movement being organized in many different steps. Each set of aligners should be worn for 20+ hours per day (including while sleeping) and each set of aligners is worn for a period of two weeks. These sets will continue until your teeth reach their final desired position. One the course of your treatment, you’ll want to visit your orthodontic provider so they can assess the process of your treatment.
