How does Invisalign work?
Drs. Michelle and Glenn Taylor of Taylor Dental Care help potential patients understand how Invisalign works. Invisalign clear aligners are a series of trays made from digital impressions of the patient’s current smile. The number of trays in their series will vary depending on the severity of misalignment. Patients use each tray for two weeks as they progress through their series to achieve a straighter smile with the last aligner in their set.
How long does it take to realign the smile with Invisalign clear aligners?
Drs. Michelle and Glenn Taylor find that most patients achieve a straighter smile in approximately one year with proper compliance. That means that patients wear their aligners for at least 22 hours a day and switch their trays every two weeks. Patients may also have appointments at the practice to evaluate the progress as they are realigning the smile. Working with our team is the best way to ensure the desired results, and complying with treatment is vital.
How do you use the trays?
The trays are made to fit snug over the dental arch. When changing the trays in the series, the first day or two may be uncomfortable. That is because of the pressure needed to move teeth into proper alignment. Patients can remove their trays to brush and floss their teeth and replace them afterward to ensure they wear them for the 22 hours a day recommended by the doctor.
