How Does Invisalign Work?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t rely on metal wires and brackets. Instead, Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, customized plastic aligners. Each aligner is designed to represent a slightly different stage of your smile as your teeth gradually move into place. By switching aligners every two weeks or so, you can achieve your ideal smile gently and gradually. Routine check-ups with Dr. Prero are necessary to monitor your progress and ensure everything is on track. Invisalign is often an excellent treatment option for patients with overcrowded teeth, gaps, crooked teeth, or an improper bite.

Invisalign treatment offers several valuable benefits, including:

  • Virtually Invisible Aligners: When worn, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to maintain your natural smile. You can even remove them for a few hours if you have a big event without any adverse effects.
  • Maintaining Oral Hygiene: Standard braces have various attachments that can accumulate food particles, leading to discoloration and a higher risk of decay. With Invisalign, these problems are eliminated since the aligners are easily removable, allowing you to maintain your regular oral hygiene routine and diet.
  • Comfort: Invisalign aligners are customized for your unique smile and have smooth edges, making them much more comfortable than the sharp brackets and poking wires of traditional braces.
  • Shorter Treatment Time: While traditional braces are typically worn for multiple years, Invisalign treatment usually takes between 4 to 18 months to complete.

What is an Itero Scan and Why Do I Need One?

To design the aligners for your Invisalign treatment, our team captures precise impressions of your unique smile. Instead of using conventional molds that can be uncomfortable, we utilize state-of-the-art iTero technology to capture digital impressions and transfer all necessary information wirelessly. This advanced technology allows us to virtually eliminate the need for costly "retakes" and significantly improves the turnaround time for receiving your aligners from the Invisalign lab. Additionally, with iTero, you can see a simulated outcome of your new and improved smile before starting the treatment!
