Are Invisalign Braces Right For Me?

Many people are interested in straightening their teeth. However, they believe that traditional metal braces are their only option and many people shy away from getting them. Not only do metal braces detract from your smile, but they can greatly reduce your self-confidence level. Fortunately, these clear aligners are another option that you may have available to you to achieve that award-winning smile without the headache of metal braces.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

The Invisalign teeth straightening system consists of clear aligner trays that are specifically designed to fit over your teeth. These custom-made invisible braces are pretty much invisible and easily removable.

Invisalign invisible aligners work very similarly to traditional metal braces as they move your teeth slowly over time to be in more aesthetically-pleasing positions. Unlike traditional metal braces where you have to visit your orthodontist every few weeks to get manual adjustments made, these invisible aligners are consistently supplied to you.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Anisa Maredia will determine how often you'll need new invisible aligners. Each upgrade will reposition your teeth closer and closer to their ideal position. Most treatments will take about one to one and a half years. You'll likely need to upgrade your aligner trays at least once every month.

How Often Should I Wear These Clear Braces?

After Dr. Anisa Maredia shows you how to comfortably wear your clear aligners, you'll want to keep them in for about 22 hours per day. You can remove them while you're brushing or eating to keep them clean. However, the more you wear your clear aligners, the quicker your straightening transition will occur.
