To make the best decision for you or your child regarding their overall appearance and oral health, you should know the pros and cons of Invisalign®. But before we dive into the pros and cons of Invisalign®, let’s explain how it works.

How Invisalign® Works

By using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, our team can create a digital model of your future smile. And with these same images, he can create a plan that will lead to your perfect smile. You will receive a series of aligners and wear each set for about 7-14 days, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. They should be worn 22 hours a day for optimal results.

As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to their final positions. You will visit us about once every three months to ensure that your treatment is progressing correctly.

Pros of Invisalign®

Invisalign’s main benefit is the stunning smile you’ll get through the gradual progress of clear, virtually invisible aligners. The only thing people will notice is your smile getting better and better!

• Before treatment begins, you’ll know how great your smile will look, thanks to our leading-edge virtual treatment process.
• Aligners are so transparent that they are virtually invisible.
• Aligners are shaped to your teeth, so no one will notice you’re wearing them!
• Thanks to their smooth, comfortable plastic material, you’ll feel comfortable as your lips and gums won’t become irritated.
• Aligners are entirely removable, allowing you to eat and drink whatever you wish.
• This also allows you to keep your current oral hygiene routine by flossing and brushing as you would.
• Your progress will be monitored, but you can still expect fewer visits and less time at our office versus traditional braces treatment.
• Typically, an extra pair of aligners is included in your treatment plan if you are to lose yours.

Cons of Invisalign®

The pros of Invisalign® far outweigh the cons! Here are a few things to weigh when contemplating if you should begin Invisalign® treatment or not.

• Invisalign® is most suitable for patients with moderate to mild bite issues and not those with severe conditions.
• Since aligners require 22 hours of wear a day for best results, your eating and drinking time is limited.
• Because they are removable and transparent, Invisalign® aligners can be lost if not stored properly.
• Certain patients may require tooth-colored attachments for their best smile, depending on the number of attachments; this can give off a clear-braces look when attached to aligners.
• Persistence will be required to care for and use your aligners properly.
