Straight teeth not only improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but also are beneficial to your overall health. While many adults avoid the orthodontist, given the notion that they are past their pre-teen years and therefore “too old” for braces, the solution for straight teeth has never been clearer. The Invisalign system is perfect for the working professional. Not only are Invisalign aligners virtually invisible, they are also more comfortable than traditional braces and easily removable. Delaware Orthodontics is proud to offer Invisalign treatment as an Elite Provider, ranking among the top five percent of Invisalign providers in the United States.

How Does Invisalign Work?

At Delaware Orthodontics, we believe that knowledge is power, and we want all of our patients to have a good understanding of their treatment plan and process. Knowing more about how Invisalign works can help you have confidence in decision to opt for treatment. The Invisalign process is fairly simple –

  1. Consultation - You would first schedule an initial consultation. During this time, your orthodontist will examine your current condition, and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
  2. Personalized Treatment Plan – Your orthodontist will pictures and impressions of your teeth to use to create your custom aligners and map out your personalized treatment plan.
  3. Invisalign Aligners – You will receive your customized series of clear, BPA-free plastic aligners.
    • For best results, you should wear these aligners for at least 20-22 hours/day
    • You will change to the next set of aligners in the series approximately every 2 weeks
    • You should come in for checkups about every 6-8 weeks for your orthodontist to monitor the progress of your treatment
  4. Post-Treament – Show off your new smile! Ask your doctor if you will need retainers following treatment.

Invisalign works similarly to traditional braces, uses strategically applied force to move your teeth into healthy alignment. Like braces, Invisalign can treat crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites, and underbites.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Apart from the clear and virtually invisible appearance of Invisalign, there are many other advantages to choosing Invisalign –

  • No Irritation - since there are no wire or brackets in the mix, you won’t have to worry about applying braces wax for irritation.
  • No Diet Restriction – With orthodontic appliance, there are often dietary restriction involved to limit the risk of damaging the appliance. Invisalign aligners are easily removable, so you can continue to enjoy your meals as you normally would.
  • No Hassle With Oral Hygiene – You also won’t have to make any modifications to how you brush and floss your teeth. You can remove your aligners to continue your regular oral hygiene routine.
  • Less Appointments – Invisalign treatment generally requires less orthodontist visits than traditional braces treatment do. Just a quick appointment every 6-8 weeks.
  • Great For Special Occassions – Invisalign is great for special occasions because they don’t have to be there with you. You should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, but you have the flexibility to leave your aligners at home for a special event or night out.
