What Is Invisalign?

Understanding the Basics

Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that uses multiple sets of clear plastic aligners to correct your smile. These aligners are comfortable and invisible when worn, making this a great option for those who would prefer to avoid wearing metal braces.

Why Choose Aligner Treatment?

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is totally invisible when worn and does not affect speech, making it an ideal choice for older adults. It also provides faster treatment than braces in most cases, and it’s more comfortable since there are no metal components to poke or irritate your mouth.

In addition to this, Invisalign is very convenient. It can be removed to eat and drink, so there are no dietary restrictions. You will also have the convenience of removing your aligners to brush and floss, making oral care more simple. Invisalign won’t hinder your hobbies either, as you can also take out your aligners to do things like play sports or musical instruments with mouthpieces. For all of these reasons, Invisalign is very popular as an alternative to traditional metal/ceramic braces.

What to Expect

The Invisalign Treatment Process
Initial Consultation

To begin the process, you’ll need to see Dr. Morren for an Invisalign consultation. He will perform a comprehensive oral exam and determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. We offer complimentary Invisalign consultations at our office.

First Sets of Aligners

If you’re approved, Dr. Morren will use the scans taken during your consultation and work with Invisalign to create your treatment plan. Your first several sets of aligners will be sent to our office within a few weeks, in most cases.

Wearing Your Aligners

Each set of aligners is typically worn for 20-22 hours or longer per day. They should be removed only to eat and drink, and to brush and floss. Each set is worn for about 2 weeks. You will need to come back into our office periodically for a quick oral exam and to get your next few sets of aligners.

Treatment Completion

This basic process outlined in the previous step will continue until your smile has been corrected. Then, you’ll come to our office for a final consultation and get a set of retainers to wear to keep your smile in the proper position. This completes your Invisalign treatment.

Know Your Options

Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?

Not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign. For example, if you have serious orthodontic problems or you have oral health issues like decayed/infected teeth or gum disease, you may not qualify for treatment. To find out if you’re a good candidate, you can schedule a complimentary, commitment-free consultation at Austin Dental Company. Dr. Morren will help you explore your options and find out if Invisalign is right for you, free of charge.
