In the past, traditional braces were the only way to get a straight smile, but that’s changed. Invisalign® aligner therapy can fix many common alignment issues. In this blog post, we give you a brief overview of this versatile orthodontic treatment.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that straighten your smile. They’re custom-made to snugly fit over your teeth to gently shift them into alignment. For the best results, you want to wear your aligners at least 20-22 hours a day. Every few weeks, you come back to Summit Family Orthodontics for a checkup and the next tray in the series.

Benefits of Invisalign

Why consider Invisalign over regular braces? Because they’re made of smooth plastic, clear aligners are extremely comfortable and are less likely to irritate your cheeks. They are also less noticeable than braces. Another benefit is that clear aligners are removable. You take them out to eat and don’t need to worry about getting food stuck in any metal brackets. Just be sure to daily clean your aligners, and to always clean your teeth before putting your aligners back in.

What Issues Can Invisalign Fix?

Invisalign aligners can correct mild to moderate misalignment issues, including crookedness, gaps, crowding, and bite issues. If your alignment issues are severe, traditional braces are the more effective treatment option.
