How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® works by gradually shifting your teeth into their ideal position with a series of clear plastic trays that fit snugly around your teeth. Treatment begins by creating the customized trays (which are called “aligners”). When they’re ready, you’ll see your orthodontist to pick them up and find out how to use them. It’s pretty simple.

You’ll wear the first set of aligners for two weeks and then move onto the next. As your teeth slowly move into position, you’ll change aligners every two weeks until you’re done. You’ll also visit your orthodontist every six weeks so he or she can check on your progress. Your orthodontist will also determine how long you’ll need to wear the aligners. Treatment time for adults is usually about 12 months; teens may take a bit longer. Either way, you’ll love your new smile!

What is the proper way for brushing your teeth?

You should brush your teeth at least twice a day every day. But it’s not only important to brush often but also the way to brush your teeth since improper brushing can cause damage to your teeth and gums. Visit our page to learn more.
