Traditional braces are effective and time-tested. However, they are not right for everyone. Fortunately, there is rarely only one way to do something in the dental industry.

That’s why Distinctive Dental Services is proud to offer you Invisalign clear braces.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an amazing alternative to traditional wire and bracket braces. In fact, this system uses custom-crafted aligners rather than wires. These aligners are fast, comfortable, convenient, and, just as the name implies, are nearly invisible. 

These invisible braces are an alternative treatment that is also quite easy to use. You can remove them while eating or participating in a heavy activity. You can brush and floss your teeth as normal, with no need for special tools or techniques. When it’s time to move to the next step in the Invisalign process, simply take one aligner out and slip in the next aligner in the series.

The Benefits of Invisalign

There are so many features that Invisalign can offer you.

  • Invisalign is comfortable.
  • Clear braces are removable, when necessary.
  • The invisible alignment trays are custom-crafted to fit your mouth.
  • You’ll only need to come into the office once every six weeks or so. 
  • There are no regular tightenings.
  • Invisible braces work quickly, with treatment time averaging about one year.
  • Invisalign trays are very easy to clean and maintain.
  • You can eat anything you want with no impact on your aligners. 
  • These clear braces are barely visible while worn.

When these invisible braces can offer so many benefits, why limit yourself to the traditional metal brackets?

How Does Invisalign Work?

The very first step in the process is to determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Come into our office for a consultation, and we can get the whole procedure started for you.

The second step is to take precise measurements of your mouth. In the past, this would have been done by taking a physical mold. These days there are intraoral scanners and cameras that can get an up-close and highly accurate measurement of your mouth’s proportions.

Step three is to take this information and use it to design the shifting process that will be carried out by your invisible braces. A series of aligners are created. Your clear braces are shaped to exert pressure on specific parts of your teeth. This pressure will gradually shift the teeth into place.

Once that is done, you will be given a series of aligners which you switch out every two weeks until your ideal smile has been achieved.
