How Does Invisalign Work? What to Expect with Clear Braces

Share This Post

Straightening your teeth does not need to be an embarrassing or time-consuming experience. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign makes getting a beautiful smile as simple as popping in a clear aligner and going about your day.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign transparent braces straighten your teeth using a series of invisible custom-molded, removable aligners. With no metal wires to irritate your mouth and no monthly appointments to tighten your bands, Invisalign is a popular choice for those looking to improve their smile. It’s simple, easy and most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.

What Is the Process with Invisalign?

Our team at Great Neck and Mid-Island Dental Associates specializes in Invisalign and is skilled at working with patients throughout the process. First, we examine your teeth, show you what an Invisalign treatment can do for you, and develop a custom treatment plan. Then we create a computer-generated image of what your teeth will look like at each stage of the process, from the beginning right up until the end, including an image of how your straighter smile will look upon completion.

Next, we create custom snap-on aligners for you to wear, which pressure specific teeth to move into place. We begin with the back teeth and finish with those in the front. There is no tightening or adjustments needed to these aligners. By simply changing them approximately every two weeks, your teeth gradually move into a straighter position.

Our skilled team is with you every step of the way during your treatment. We generally schedule check-up appointments every six to eight weeks to check your progress, give you the next batch of aligners and answer any questions.

The end result? A big, beautiful smile! Invisalign is a great option that is easy and takes minimal time out of your everyday life.
