What is Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign involves the process of wearing clear, removable retainers that align your teeth over time.

What Makes Invisalign’s Teeth Straightening Better?

This treatment is supported by 30 years of combined experience. Almost any bite and misalignment-related problem from simple to advanced can be solved without interfering with your everyday routine. In addition, the aligners’ clear appearance provides a more natural look, so your self-image isn’t negatively affected.

Who is Invisalign Treatment For?

This procedure is available to both adults and teenagers. Currently, more than 7 million patients (including over 1.4 million teens) have invested in our retainers to improve their smile. These aligners use no brackets, wires, or restrictions, as is standard in metal braces. Only a small blue marking indicates when you’re wearing them.

How Are Invisalign Retainers Made?

These aligners are custom-made according to your treatment plan and fitted for your teeth. A 3D scan of your mouth will be taken, to help us learn what specific movements need to be made to align your teeth, as well as precisely how long treatment will take. Because everyone’s gum-line is different, every set of aligners must be individually trimmed for accuracy. Every set is unique, and great care is taken to ensure that the quality of treatment remains the same.

What is the Treatment Procedure?

•  You will meet with Dr. Jeremiah Leary for a consultation to examine your current smile before plotting out a customized digital treatment plan. This will show every step of your journey toward a new and improved smile. All questions you have will be answered and Dr. Jeremiah Leary will determine your teeth-straightening goals as well as any specific needs. A professional check-up and cleaning will likely be recommended before you begin treatment, to confirm that your teeth and gums are in good enough health to avoid unnecessary risks.
•  Upon approving your treatment plan, your first set of unique aligners will be constructed.The exact length of treatment varies from case to case, with the average being 12-18 months. We will determine this based on your information and you can expect to start seeing results in a matter of weeks. For maximum effect, you’ll need to wear each set for 20-22 hours per day, transitioning to a new one every one to two weeks as instructed by Dr. Jeremiah Leary. Over time, each set of retainers will slowly and gently move your teeth into proper position until your dream-smile is finally attained.
•  You will have regular appointments with Dr. Jeremiah Leary for four to six weeks, to make sure the aligners are working as intended and your treatment is proceeding as planned.

Teeth Whitening After Invisalign

Invisalign teeth whitening trays can be used once treatment has been completed. The final set will fit your new smile perfectly and be capable of holding whitening products against your teeth evenly. Giving you straight teeth is the priority, so the order of steps we take in your treatment plan is important.

Although some patients may face the temptation to both whiten and straighten their teeth at the same time, this is generally advised against due to the nature of what Invisalign is designed for. The treatment is meant for people dealing with malocclusion (gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and teeth crowding). Because each case is different, there may be times when some teeth are not fully erupted until treatment ends. Therefore, it’s crucial to wait until your teeth have been fully aligned first.

Another reason to wait is because it’s impossible to be certain prior to the end of treatment whether whitening agents will properly work on all of your teeth. This is most often the case for patients requiring attachments. Overall, it’s best to follow your treatment plan before focusing on other aspects of your teeth.

Why Invisalign is Right for You

The benefits of choosing Invisalign include but are not limited to:
•  Staying active in your everyday sports or other activities.
•  Enjoy socializing with family and friends.
•  Return to eating your favorite foods. Simply take out your aligners to eat or drink, then brush your teeth before placing them back in.
•  Brush and floss as you normally would, with no annoyance from wires or brackets.
•  Fewer emergency visits. You may live without fear of any wires or brackets breaking.
•  As said, because the aligners are practically invisible, most people usually won’t be able to tell you’re wearing them at first glance. You can show off your smile to others with confidence.

Invisalign is a great opportunity to grant you the smile you deserve. For any questions you may have or to set up an appointment, please call us at (503) 297-1471.
