Invisible Healing: How Invisalign Aligners Work

By Dr. Allen Garai

If you need to straighten your teeth, you have other options besides traditional metal brackets and wires. Many dentists recommend Invisalign, a clear aligner worn over the teeth.

Metal braces remain in place for several years and slowly move your teeth into the correct positions. However, Invisalign aligners work similarly to retainers: you wear the aligner for two weeks, then visit your dentist to remove it and receive a new one. During each two-week period, the aligners adjust your teeth gradually.

Invisalign aligners come with many benefits over traditional braces. They are transparent, so only those who look closely will notice them. Additionally, your dentist will mold your aligner to fit your mouth, resulting in a product so smooth and comfortable that you might forget you’re wearing it. You can also remove aligners when you eat, brush, and floss, making them easier to maintain than metal brackets that catch bits of food.

Invisalign Teeth Straightening, by Dr. Allen Garai

A convenient alternative to braces, Invisalign uses a series of removable aligners custom-designed for each patient. Aligner trays are made of smooth, clear plastic, and they gently shift teeth as they are worn. A new set of aligners is put in place every two weeks until treatment is complete. The method effectively shifts teeth with no attached metal or wires to cause inconvenient mouth abrasions.

While treatment duration varies for each patient, most adults can complete the treatment in about a year. For teens, the time is comparable to that of braces, but results can often be seen much sooner, thanks to the absence of metal brackets or wires. For the most effective and timely results, aligners should be removed only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day throughout the course of treatment.
