What is Invisible braces – InvisalignTM

Dr. Daniel Araldi is pleased to be an invisible braces provider (also known as Invisalign). Invisalign is an attractive teeth straightening alternative to braces made from metal brackets and wires that instead allows you to straighten your teeth by wearing clear plastic aligners. Just like traditional braces, Invisalign retainers put pressure on your teeth to slowly move them into the desired position.

How Invisalign Works

InvisalignThe term Invisalign or invisible braces is a trademarked name for a set of clear and removable retainers customized for you by your Saratoga dental team, Saratoga Dentistry. In your consultation, you will learn all about this procedure, including viewing a time-lapse computer program of what your smile might look like when you’re done with treatment. After discussing your smile goals, Dr. Araldi provides our dental laboratory with dental X-rays and an impression of your teeth. A series of aligner trays is created and is replaced with a new one approximately every 14 days. With each set you receive one retainer for each row of your teeth that will be customized to fit your mouth perfectly as they gently move into position during your course of treatment.

Benefits of Invisible Braces Compared to Traditional Braces

You must follow several food restrictions when you wear metal braces, but this isn’t the case with invisible braces!  That’s because you can remove your aligners when you eat. This also makes it much easier to brush and floss your teeth. For the best and fastest results, we recommend wearing your invisible braces trays all day and night, except when you’re eating or cleaning them. Since it isn’t necessary for the Saratoga Dental team to tighten or adjust any wires on your retainers, you need only come in for check-ups approximately every six weeks, compared to monthly with traditional braces.

Invisalign Treatment Expectations

Each time you replace an aligner, the new device puts a slight amount of increased pressure on your teeth. The goal is for all teeth to move into position so they are being straightened within the timeframe needed for your custom treatment plan. Most of our patients wear between 18-30 removable retainers with an average treatment time of only 9-15 months.
