Invisalign is a wonderful program curated especially for adults who either got braces as adolescents and saw their teeth relapse, or never had orthodontic treatment and want to finally perfect their smiles. Invisalign has a program for adolescents called Invisalign Teen that is also exciting as an alternative to youth braces. But the Invisalign treatment is practiced by dentists most enthusiastically on adults whose smiles are getting a second chance.
Treatment plans under Invisalign vary from patient to patient, not all of whom can proceed at the same rate. The general timetable is about a year. Eligible patients begin treatment with a variety of tests, including digital x-rays, impressions and photographs. Once collected, this data is used to forecast the movement of your teeth from month to month. You are then fitted for your first set of plastic aligners, or trays. Every two weeks, you will switch your trays out for a new set.
Tooth movement by Invisalign depends on diligent oversight, and commitment to wearing the aligners for as many as 22 hours a day. You take them out to eat, drink, and practice hygiene. But the aligners cannot do their work if they are not left in place.
