What Are Invisalign® Clear Aligners?

Invisalign® is a brand name for an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners instead of braces to straighten teeth. You may have heard of some other brands of clear aligners. Invisalign® clear aligners are the first and best clear aligners, utilizing digital technologies to precisely map the interior of the mouth to create a custom fit.

With clear aligners, instead of metal braces, the patient wears digitally molded plastic trays that slowly guide the teeth into the correct position. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® clear aligners are removable by the wearer. For this reason, we often still recommend metal braces for younger children (who might lose their clear aligners), but Invisalign® is a great option for older kids, teens, and adults.

What Are the Benefits of
Invisalign® Clear Aligners?

Invisalign® clear aligners are one of the most popular ways to straighten teeth, and for good reason. Here are some of those amazing reasons:

Virtually Invisible – Invisalign® clear aligners don’t have that “obvious” look of metal braces.

Clear aligners are easy to clean, since you can take Invisalign® trays out of the mouth, unlike braces. Also, there are no wires and brackets for food particles to stick to!

Straighter teeth not only look better, but they are healthier and cause fewer problems than crooked or misaligned teeth.

Invisalign® clear aligners are a great option for adults who want straighter teeth without the hassle and look of braces.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

You’ll first meet with our orthodontist in Bixby Knolls to have a comprehensive evaluation performed. We will likely take digital pictures inside the mouth as well as X-rays. If Invisalign® is right for you or your child, we will also use digital photography to take digital impressions of your teeth. These 3D impressions are used to create the custom Invisalign® clear aligner trays.

You or your child will wear the trays, aka the clear aligners, for most of the day except when eating and brushing teeth. You will come into our office in Bixby Knolls in North Long Beach, CA every few weeks for a checkup and to get new clear aligner trays.

How Long Does Invisalign®
Treatment Last?

Invisalign® treatment takes approximately 1-1.5 years. Sometimes this time can be shortened through the use of a special electronic device that can improve the efficacy of the Invisalign® process. We don’t want to speed the process up too much, though, because we want the teeth to move naturally into position without pain, strain, or stress.

Of course, consistency will make a huge difference in the length of time the Invisalign® clear aligner trays need to be worn. If you or your child miss days wearing your Invisalign®, you will set the process back. So, wearing the Invisalign® clear aligner trays as much as possible will help the process along.
