What is Invisalign? Tucson AZ

Invisalign is an extremely popular, convenient, and non-invasive way to get straighter teeth. We offer Invisalign near you, and our team has compiled some of the most common questions we get asked about Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a brand of clear, orthodontic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into better alignment.

How does Invisalign work?

Your dentist will create a series of custom-made clear orthodontic aligners that will shift your teeth into proper position. The initial aligner will have small modifications towards straighter teeth, while subsequent ones will gradually force your teeth into optimal position as your teeth shift into position. If required, your dentist will swap out the aligners as your teeth shift into position, forcing your teeth in the optimal position. 

Is Invisalign better than traditional braces?

Many people prefer Invisalign aligners to traditional metal braces because the clear aligners are less noticeable and comfortable. Using Invisalign may take less time than traditional braces. You also won’t have sharp metal components poking the inside of your mouth. Invisalign eliminates the risk of broken wires and brackets. 

How long does Invisalign take to straighten teeth?

While the length of time varies based on treatment severity, most people end up using Invisalign for 6 months for a mild case and 12-18 months for a moderate to severe case.
