What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is a process in which the patient is provided a series of clear, removable aligners that are worn on top of the teeth. These aligners gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign is elegant, there are no brackets and wires and certainly none of the restrictions that you would have with metal brackets.

What are Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?

Invisalign aligners are thin and fit snugly over your teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®. This is a flexible plastic — created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

How will Invisalign treatment straighten my teeth?

Your dentist at Aurora Family Dentistry will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your dentist will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign clear aligners are thin, clear and virtually invisible — so much so that people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break.

Will Invisalign work for Teenagers?

According to Invisalign themselves, As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, they have successfully improved over 5 million smiles, including 1 million teen smiles.

Am I guaranteed to have straight teeth with Invisalign treatment?

Every smile is unique, your initial consultation with your dentist at Aurora Family Dentistry will be very important. During this consultation, your dentist will help define what changes the Invisalign treatment could potentially do for your smile. We, of course, cannot guarantee a particular treatment outcome. However, your dentist will be able to guide you to choose what treatment goals may be achievable.
