How Invisalign Works

Invisalign aligner

Unlike traditional braces that rely on unsightly metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment involves the use of a series of transparent plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into the desired position.

Each new set of aligners are custom designed to apply gentle pressure to specific points in your mouth and slowly straighten crooked, gapped or misaligned teeth. In just 12 to 18 months, you can achieve the straight smile you have always wanted with Invisalign in Tappan!

Less Treatment Time

One of the main advantages that Invisalign has over traditional braces is its treatment time. The usual Invisalign case will take about a year, which is much faster than traditional orthodontics. However, your treatment time will vary based on the severity of your misalignment. The number of aligners that you’ll wear in your series can range from 18 to 30. Additionally, Invisalign requires less trips to our office for adjustments, which gives you more time in your busy schedule.

What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Fix?

Invisalign is an excellent solution to treat the most common orthodontic issues, such as:

Crowded Teeth

Overcrowded teeth can be more difficult to brush or floss, which means it is easier for tiny food particles and bacteria to remain stuck in those hard-to-reach places in your mouth. This puts you at a higher risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease. Invisalign can gently realign your teeth to create the appropriate amount of space between them.

Spaces Between Teeth

When you have too much space between your teeth it is easier for food particles to get trapped between them and contribute to bad breath and even tooth decay. Invisalign can help move teeth back into the proper alignment, boosting the aesthetics of your smile and reducing the risk of dental issues like cavities and gum disease.

Bite Issues

Bite problems put pressure on your jaw joint and can lead you to clench your jaw or grind your teeth at night. Grinding teeth can wear down your tooth enamel, the protective outer layer that helps prevent tooth decay. Whether you have an underbite, overbite or crossbite, Invisalign can help correct the way your teeth fit together.
