What is Invisalign?

Traditional braces require brackets, archwires, and elastic bands to correct orthodontic conditions, but Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to guide your teeth into position.

The clear trays are lightweight, durable, and removable, so you can eat what you like and brush with ease. Your trays are custom-made and fit comfortably over your teeth to provide effective and reliable results.

Benefits of Invisalign

Aligning your teeth doesn’t just improve your appearance! It also saves you money in the long run by preventing tooth decay, gum disease, enamel wear, and other issues associated with orthodontic conditions.

After we examine your teeth, we will discuss your treatment options. The Invisalign system has many benefits, including:

How Invisalign Works

Like other forms of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign puts pressure on the teeth, bringing them into the desired alignment over time. Dr. Koen will use cutting-edge 3D imaging technology to diagnose your condition and demonstrate how your treatment will work.

You will receive a new set of customized trays every two weeks that will incrementally shift your teeth into position. To get the most from your treatment, you should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, only removing them to brush your teeth and eat.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

During your consultation, Dr. Koen will examine your teeth using an advanced 3D scanning system to diagnose your condition. He will also review your treatment options and let you know which one is right for you. Invisalign clear aligners can effectively treat many conditions, including:

Having an aligned smile can boost your teen’s self-esteem and give them a lifetime of oral health. Invisalign can help teens who are self-conscious about their teeth or avoid smiling because of their orthodontic condition.

To get the best results, your teen needs to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours per day and consistently brush and floss their teeth. Keeping the trays in their case can also prevent the aligners from getting broken or lost.

Removing stains from Invisalign is easy! Soak your aligners in a solution of Invisalign cleaning crystals or retainer cleaner for everyday cleaning. You can also use a clear, antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. To tackle tougher stains, try a 30-minute soak in diluted hydrogen peroxide (equal parts peroxide and water) or make a paste with baking soda and water to scrub the aligners gently. Diluted white vinegar (one part vinegar, three parts water) is another option but may leave a slight vinegar odor.

If you lose your aligners, don’t fret! Give us a call as soon as possible, and we will work with you to ensure you stay on track with your treatment plan, which may involve wearing a previous set of aligners, your next set of aligners, or ordering replacement aligners.
