When you want to feel confident in your smile but don't want the hassle of metal brackets, you have options.

Invisalign is one of the most popular methods of correcting crooked teeth. With Invisalign, aligners made from a thermoplastic material gently guide your teeth to the desired positions. These clear aligners are practically invisible and easily removable.

Many adults are reluctant to get traditional braces. An Invisalign dentist at Sapphire Smiles can correct crooked or misaligned teeth with a less noticeable alternative. By wearing these aligners for 22 hours each day, you'll soon have a smile that you'll love.

Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are one of the most effective orthodontic treatments available. They not only correct misaligned teeth but also address many other common oral health concerns:

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Certain bite issues, such as an open bite, underbite, overbite, or crossbite
During your first appointment, we'll determine whether you are a good candidate for clear aligners or whether your condition will be better treated with traditional braces.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

In addition to being less noticeable than traditional braces, Invisalign has many other benefits:

  • The aligners are removable for eating and proper dental hygiene
  • The custom-made trays are more comfortable than braces
  • There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth
  • You don’t need monthly appointments for wire adjustments
  • There is minimal impact on your lifestyle
Invisalign is an excellent choice for adults who work in professional settings and need orthodontic care.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your initial Invisalign consultation with Dr. Mary or Dr. Antoun, they will begin to create your treatment plan by taking a digital scan of your teeth. Laboratory technicians will use the scan to create an outline of your treatment that shows every phase of your Invisalign journey, including the predicted final results.

Your Invisalign Aligners

After a few weeks, your custom-made Invisalign trays will be ready to insert. Most patients receive 15 to 25 aligners, which change approximately every ten days. However, every patient has a unique solution, so your number of trays may vary.

The team at Sapphire Smiles will show you how to wear and maintain your trays. You must commit to wearing them a minimum of 22 hours a day to achieve the best results.

Each set of Invisalign trays is designed to make slight movements in your teeth. You'll replace your aligners every ten days, and they will gently move your teeth into the proper position. You'll visit us regularly throughout treatment to ensure your smile is progressing as planned.

Invisalign treatment takes 4 to 12 months, depending on your specific needs. In many cases, it is significantly faster than traditional orthodontic treatment.

After completing your Invisalign treatment, your teeth will look straighter and more even. We will give you a retainer that will help keep your teeth in the correct position so you can continue loving your new smile.

Caring for Your Invisalign Aligners

Caring for your clear aligners is just as important as wearing them for the recommended time. Get into the habit of cleaning your trays regularly with a nonabrasive cleaner. Avoid using denture cleaner or mouthwash; soaking them daily in lukewarm water with Invisalign cleaning crystals will help keep them free of odor.

Remember to remove your trays when eating and drinking. Otherwise, they could become stained or damaged.
