What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made, clear plastic trays that you wear over your teeth to gradually shift them into the desired position. Invisalign is an effective orthodontic treatment for teens and adults who need mild to moderate teeth straightening. The aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic that is nearly invisible when worn. They are custom-designed for each patient and are removable, making it easy to brush your teeth, floss, and eat.

How Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Work?

Each Invisalign aligner is custom-designed for each patient and is made from advanced 3D digital modeling of your teeth. Once your dentist creates your treatment plan, we produce your custom-made aligners. You will wear each aligner for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks before switching to the next one, gradually shifting your teeth into the desired position. Treatment with Invisalign typically takes 12-18 months, depending on the complexity of your case.

Who Can Benefit From Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for adults and teens who need orthodontic treatment for mild to moderate teeth straightening. Invisalign is especially popular for people who want a more discreet orthodontic treatment than traditional braces, but it’s important to note that Invisalign may not be suitable for everyone. Dr. Tim DePalma or Dr. Marissa Garcia will evaluate your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you.

Procedure for Getting Invisalign Clear Aligners

If you are looking to get Invisalign clear aligners, it is essential to know the process.
The first step in getting Invisalign clear aligners is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tim DePalma or Dr. Marissa Garcia. During the consultation, Dr. DePalma or Dr. Garcia will evaluate your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
If you are a candidate, your dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth, which we will use to create a 3D digital model of your smile. The 3D model will be used to create your custom-made Invisalign clear aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you will start wearing them for the recommended length of time daily. You’ll have regular appointments with your dentist to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Invisalign Clear Aligners Care

Rinse Your Aligners Each Time You Remove Them:

Keep your aligners clean and fresh by rinsing them every time you take them out. This can prevent plaque buildup and discoloration.

Clean Your Aligners Gently:

Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive toothbrushes. Instead, use a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste or denture cleaner.

Brush and Floss Before Reinserting Your Aligners:

Ensure you maintain good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth before reinserting your aligners can prevent food particles from getting trapped.

Keep Your Aligners in Their Case When Not in Use:

To protect your aligners from damage and dirt, always store them in their case when you are not wearing them.

Attend Regular Dental Check-ups:

Regular visits to your dentist will ensure your treatment is progressing as planned and that your teeth and aligners are in good condition.

Never Use Hot Water to Clean Your Aligners:

Hot water can warp the plastic and ruin your aligners. Always use cold or lukewarm water.

Avoid Eating or Drinking with Aligners In:

Except for water, do not eat or drink with your aligners in to avoid staining and potential damage.
