How does Invisalign work, and what are the benefits of a straighter smile?

Everyone wants beautiful, straight teeth, but many people may need a little extra help to get a Hollywood-calibre smile. Invisalign is one of the ways our patients can get the smile of their dreams. 

Since 1997, Invisalign has taken the dentistry world by storm, and it’s easy to understand why. Invisalign has helped millions of people get straighter teeth in half the time of traditional braces. Advanced Dentistry by Design is proud to offer orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages, including Invisalign, in San Jose, CA. 

How Invisalign Works 

Invisalign clear aligners are smooth, plastic trays created from a 3D scan of your smile. Fabricated in an Invisalign lab, the removable trays fit over the upper and lower teeth, much like a mouthguard or retainer.

The aligners are thin, but strong, and they are virtually invisible, so no one may even notice you’re wearing them. The aligner system works in a sequence, and every two weeks, you receive the next set in the series. Each set is slightly more snug than the last so it can gradually reposition misaligned teeth.

Benefits of Having Straight Teeth

There are several health benefits of having straight teeth. A straighter smile can:

  1. Re-energize one's appearance
  2. Boost one's self-confidence
  3. Reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease
  4. Promote clearer speech
  5. Evenly distribute biting/chewing forces
  6. Improve digestion 

When you have a symmetrical smile, your jaws and teeth can perform their necessary functions with more ease, comfortability, and efficiency. Straight teeth are also less likely to incur injuries, like chips or fractures!
