    What is Invisalign?

    Invisalign uses a series of progressive alignment trays to guide your teeth into the desired position. Instead of adjusting wires every month, you change your aligners out every two weeks. Each set is slightly different than the one before, nudging the appropriate teeth closer toward the end goal.

    The Invisalign system uses 3D CAD/CAM imaging to map out your tooth movement before treatment ever starts. This process allows us access to preview your proposed results and estimate the total length of treatment, depending on the number of trays needed to move your teeth.

    Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?

    For some people, Invisalign is the best orthodontic option for their lifestyle. While there are still situations where conventional braces may be most appropriate, Invisalign includes several advantages. Including:
    • No dietary restrictions
    • Practically invisible appliances
    • Improved, comfortable fit
    • Easier home care and maintenance
    • Shorter and fewer appointments
    • Discreet for adults and teens
    • Short-term cosmetic to comprehensive treatments
    Invisalign is effective for treating a variety of malocclusion (misaligned teeth) conditions, including crowding, gaps, crossbites, and more. Over the years, Invisalign has become more effective at managing moderate to more severe tooth misalignment concerns, making it just as effective as braces for most orthodontic patients.

    Alternatives to Invisalign

    Today many invisible braces options work similarly to Invisalign aligners. Each of these removable tray systems mirrors the Invisalign process. Popular alternatives include treatments like ClearCorrect, SureSmile, invisible braces (using tooth-colored brackets), and other types of transparent trays. However, Invisalign has the most extensive amount of research and more patients have completed Invisalign than any other type of invisible braces in the world.

    What is the Process for Getting Invisalign?

    Getting Invisalign begins with a professional evaluation with one of our certified Chandler Invisalign providers. During your exam, we will assess the way your teeth fit together and take a series of scans, which act as digital dental impressions (but without the gooey trays.) Your scans are processed by Invisalign software to pre-plan the best tooth movement for your smile. From there, you know how much of a time commitment is involved.

    If you’re ready to move forward with treatment, we will order your trays. You’ll wear each set of aligners 22 hours a day and change them out once every two weeks (only removing them for meals or brushing and flossing.) We’ll see you for periodic visits about once every other month to ensure your teeth are moving as desired, and to send you home with the next several sets of trays.

    How Long do I Need to Wear Invisalign Correctors?

    Most Invisalign cases take an average of about 12-18 months to complete. However, some are much shorter while others take more time. To ensure an efficient treatment experience, always wear your aligners as directed and change them out as prescribed. Failing to do so (even switching them out too quickly) can delay treatment results. Our Chandler Invisalign dentists will be able to provide you with an estimated treatment length during your Invisalign consultation process.
