How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign Union, NJ

Dr. Hummert and the team at Garden State Orthodontics prescribe and treat their patients in the Union, NJ are with Invisalign clear aligner trays more and more these days. Invisalign has quickly gained popularity and become one of the top orthodontic treatments around the world, and the pros at Garden State Orthodontics can explain exactly how it works.

Fit and Finish

The Invisalign trays are made of a clear thermoplastic material that is molded to fit snugly over the surfaces of the wearer’s teeth. Invisalign aligners are fitted to and created for each patient. A 3D imaging and design program is used to develop a treatment plan with the aligners. It plots each series of trays that the patient will wear during their course of treatment. The trays gently, progressively, and effectively move the teeth into their new positions.

Power and Performance

A course of treatment with Invisalign, developed by Dr. Hummert, involves graduating progressively over a period of time through a series of clear tray aligners. The aligner trays exert a gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into a more natural position in the mouth. Each new set of aligners moves the teeth further into their optimal natural position. It’s equally as effective as traditional braces, but less visible.

Comfort and Convenience

Treatment with Invisalign frees the wearer from frequent and inconvenient adjustment appointments that are necessary when wearing traditional braces. The smooth plastic surfaces of the Invisalign aligner trays prevents the irritation and discomfort. They can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, and caring for the trays. Invisalign aligner trays are virtually invisible to the casual observer. They can be worn throughout the day or evening without anyone noticing they are being worn.

Protection Plan

Garden State Orthodontics know that teeth may drift back to their old positions in the mouth after orthodontic treatment. A retainer is typically required after treatment.. Wearing a retainer will help the teeth settle into their new spots and maintain their positions. Conscientiously wearing the retainer will ensure that your teeth will remain straight and in position.
