Learning About Invisalign®

Posted .

With so many new dental treatments available, our team here at Dr. Alan J. White, D.D.S. in Staunton, Virginia, understands some people may not know them all. That is why our team is happy to give you the proper information you need to learn how you can achieve proper oral alignment through Invisalign® without the annoying or painful treatment of traditional metal braces.

Invisalign is made out of very thin, clear, custom-made aligners, which makes them extremely hard to see by others. These aligners are designed to give your teeth a gentle push into their proper alignment. About every two weeks, you trade your set of aligners in for a new set until you complete your treatment.

Here are some flaws Invisalign aligners can correct in your smile:

· Overbites
· Gapped teeth
· Underbites
· Open bites
· Overly crowded teeth
· Crossbites

Invisalign is popular because of the discreteness of the system and the ease of care it takes for them. Because they are not made of metal, they simply snap on, over your teeth. This is helpful because you can take them off easily as you eat or brush your teeth. The aligners will need to be worn for at least 22 hours of the day. This will help keep your treatment time on track.

Thanks to the thousands of successful treatments, Invisalign has never been more popular than it is today.
