What are the Advantages of Invisalign?

Patients might choose Invisalign over other forms of braces because Invisalign is subtle and removable. No one can tell you are wearing braces when your Invisalign aligners blend right in with your smile! Invisalign patients find it easy to eat normally and clean their teeth, because they can remove their aligners day or night.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign involves a series of see-through aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to move your teeth a little bit closer to their ideal position to achieve perfect alignment. When you wear your aligners for at least twenty hours each day, and you switch them out as recommended by your dentist, you will see beautiful results.

How Often Will I Need to Come Into the Office?

During Invisalign treatment, you will only need to come see Drs. Lori and Adam Cohen for visits once about every eight weeks. These visits should be convenient, simple, and a good opportunity to review your treatment experience with your orthodontist.

Is Invisalign Painful?

invisalign03Patients are usually impressed by the overall comfort of Invisalign. You may experience some pressure or sensitivity while your teeth are moving, but the aligners are smooth and custom-fit to your smile. You won’t experience gum or lip irritation or excessive pain of any kind.

How Long Will I Wear Invisalign?

Treatment time varies on a case-by-case basis. Some individuals only need to wear Invisalign for about six months, while other patients require about 18 months of treatment time. The average Invisalign treatment lasts just about one year.
