How Does Invisalign Work?

In recent years, advancements in orthodontic technology have given people seeking a perfect smile more options than ever before. One big solution that has gained popularity is Invisalign. At Struckhoff & Britt Orthodontics, patients have been experiencing the transformation of their smiles through this discreet and effective teeth-straightening method for years.

Understanding Invisalign

Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces that utilizes clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired positions. The process begins with a comprehensive assessment at our office, where Dr. Struckhoff or Dr. Britt create a personalized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s unique dental needs.

The Treatment Journey

1. Initial Consultation: The journey starts with an initial consultation where we assess your dental condition. This involves an exam, X-rays, and digital impressions to create a 3D model of your teeth.
2. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, a customized treatment plan is made. This plan outlines the step-by-step movements of the teeth and provides a preview of the final result.
3. Creation of Aligners: Once the treatment plan is approved, a series of clear aligners are custom-crafted for the patient. These aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that fits snugly over the teeth.
4. Wearing the Aligners: Patients wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. With each new set of aligners, the teeth gradually move into their desired positions.
5. Regular Check-ups: Regular check-ups at Struckhoff & Britt Orthodontics allow our team to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

Benefits of Invisalign 

1. Aesthetic Appeal: One of the primary advantages of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing patients to straighten their teeth without the noticeable presence of traditional braces.
2. Comfort and Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easier for individuals to maintain good oral hygiene and enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions. The smooth plastic also minimizes irritation and discomfort associated with traditional braces.
3. Predictable Results: The use of advanced 3D imaging technology ensures precise planning and predictable outcomes. Patients can see a virtual representation of their progress before they even begin the treatment.
4. Shorter Treatment Duration: In some cases, Invisalign treatment may lead to a shorter overall duration compared to traditional braces, providing a quicker path to a beautifully aligned smile.
