What is Invisalign for Adults and How Does it Work?

Invisalign is a clear plastic aligner used to straighten teeth. It offers a more convenient, non-invasive treatment compared to metal braces. As with braces, Invisalign aligners slowly reposition your teeth to help correct issues with tooth and jaw alignment, including:

  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bite
  • Deep bite
  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Protrusion

Invisalign works for mild to severe bite problems. Some issues may require other forms of treatment. For example, a severe underbite or open bite may require surgery. However, Invisalign remains a suitable treatment for most adults.

Improve Your Smile Without Brackets and Wires

Clear plastic aligners have become a popular choice for adults who want straighter smiles without the hassles related to traditional metal braces.

People often associate braces with teenagers and children, which may deter adults. You do not need to deal with this problem when you choose Invisalign aligners. They are discreet, comfortable, and effective.

Along with offering a nearly invisible orthodontic treatment, Invisalign aligners offer a wide range of advantages:

  • Correct bite problems
  • Better oral hygiene
  • Discreet treatment
  • Minimal appointments

Invisalign aligners can correct bite problems, giving you more confidence to smile and chew. As the plastic aligners are nearly invisible, they may not impact your self-esteem in the same way as braces.

Clear plastic aligners are also removable, which is not an option with metal brackets used for braces. You can remove your Invisalign aligners when eating, brushing, or flossing. This eliminates the food restrictions that people with braces need to deal with.

Compared to traditional braces, you also require fewer appointments. We monitor your progress using Dental Monitoring and check the fit of each new aligner to ensure that your treatment remains on track.

How Long Does It Take to Straighten Teeth with Invisalign?

The typical Invisalign treatment for adults takes about 6 to 24 months. Severe issues may take longer while mild bite problems may require less time to fix. For example, mild teeth crowding may only take 6 months.

Some of the factors that influence the time needed to straighten your teeth include:

  • The distance that your teeth need to move
  • The pace of tooth movement
  • The difficulty of the types of tooth movements needed
  • Your ability to wear the aligners for 22 hours per day

Depending on your specific issues or concerns, Invisalign may provide the most convenient and least invasive option for correcting your smile.
