Invisalign


Traditional metal braces with wires and brackets are a thing of the past. Invisalign modernizes orthodontics by offering a subtle and inconspicuous solution for perfecting your smile. The Invisalign trays are crafted from a smooth, nearly undetectable plastic material that comfortably fits over your teeth. Invisalign involves the use of custom-made plastic aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. These aligners act like invisible braces, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly and comfortably. In fact, a vast number of patients have reported being highly satisfied with the Invisalign treatment and their remarkable results.

Why Choose Invisalign?


Invisalign is one of the most sought-after orthodontic treatments to correct crooked teeth. Smile Time Dental is a certified Invisalign provider that can customize a sequence of 18 to 30 aligners for you. Each aligner should be worn for two weeks and then replaced with a new one. Gradually, each aligner will shift your teeth and progress towards achieving the desired smile. If you prefer Invisalign to braces, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with our orthodontist and team for the necessary treatment and care to enhance your smile.

Am I A Candidate For Invisalign?


Invisalign is an effective treatment for various bite issues. However, it has certain limitations compared to traditional braces. Patients often inquire about the orthodontic issues that Invisalign cannot correct. Here are some common examples of situations that may pose challenges with Invisalign treatment:

Severe overbite: While a mild to moderate overbite can be addressed, severe cases may require the use of traditional braces to achieve the desired results.

Tooth shape: Invisalign may not be suitable for patients with pegged or very short teeth as it cannot effectively straighten them.

Tooth position: If your teeth are severely rotated, Invisalign may not be able to shift them into the desired position.

Large gaps: While Invisalign can fix small gaps between teeth, larger gaps may require traditional braces.

Intrusion and extrusion: Invisalign cannot be used to raise or lower the position of teeth.

Prior dental work: Patients with previous dental work such as bridges may not be suitable candidates for Invisalign treatment.

It is important to note that every patient’s case is unique. Consult with our orthodontist to discuss your individual situation and determine the best orthodontic treatment for you.

If you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign, this orthodontic treatment can gradually and gently shift your teeth, resulting in perfectly spaced and aligned teeth in your mouth. In orthodontics, more adults than teenagers opt for Invisalign due to their ability to comply with wearing and caring for aligners and having fully grown teeth. Invisalign is widely acclaimed for being an effective and comfortable treatment.

Not only does Invisalign improve your smile’s appearance, but it is also an easy and hassle-free option. Flossing is much simpler with Invisalign since you can remove the aligners and floss normally, whereas metal braces require a bit more strategy. Furthermore, you can remove Invisalign before eating, avoiding the problem of food getting stuck in your aligners, unlike with metal braces.

There are numerous reasons why Invisalign treatment may be preferable to metal braces, but the decision ultimately depends on your lifestyle and personal preferences.

On average, patients may experience some tightness or discomfort when using a new aligner. However, this sensation typically diminishes within a couple of days. Most orthodontic patients describe the discomfort as a light pressure on their teeth.

Following your orthodontic treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your teeth in their corrected position and prevent them from shifting back. Our office provides various orthodontic retainer options to choose from.

It is highly recommended that you wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours every day. You should remove them only when you eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
