Advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman Dentistry

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. Others may not even notice that you’re wearing them.

There are numerous advantages of using Invisalign® for your teeth straightening, including:

  • They are virtually invisible, so most people won’t notice you’re straightening your teeth
  • You can take them out to eat, so there’s no worry about food restrictions or getting food stuck in them
  • There’s no sharp or uncomfortable metal in your mouth, no wires or rubber bands
  • It’s easy to keep your teeth and gums healthy – simply pop the aligner out to brush and floss

How Invisalign works

Invisalign treatment for adults usually takes about 12 months, and for teens, about the same amount of time as braces. Because the aligners can be removed at any time such as for special occasions, they have a minimum impact on your lifestyle. You simply change aligners every two weeks and can see the positive changes as you go.

Planning your treatment

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman Dentistry

Straight, beautiful teeth help boost your confidence in your smile.

Dr. Jayne takes digital X-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign uses to create digital 3D images of your teeth. She then uses these images to map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth. Dr. Jayne can show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment, and let you know the approximate length of treatment.

Custom aligners based on your treatment plan

Dr. Jayne forwards your individual treatment plan to Invisalign. They fabricate a series of custom-made, clear, BPA-free aligners for you. Dr. Jayne answers all your questions and shows you how to use them.

Gradually straightening your teeth

After about two weeks, it’s time to change to the next set of aligners in the series. Each set of aligners gently shifts your teeth into a new position, and then the next one takes it a little further. Every four to six weeks, you come in to our office and Dr. Jayne checks your progress.

Straight talk about crooked teeth

Crooked teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, they can cause damage to adjacent teeth and create conditions that lead to periodontal disease. The video below will show how straightening your teeth can also improve your overall health!

Conditions Dr. Jayne can fix with Invisalign

Invisalign treatment can fix a wide variety of problems with teeth and bite alignment, from mild cases of crooked teeth to much more difficult problems involving serious bite issues.

Here are some of the main conditions Dr. Jayne can fix with Invisalign:

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryOverly crowded

When teeth are crowded in the mouth, it can be difficult to clean the teeth properly. This can promote tooth decay and cause a higher risk of gum disease.

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryOverbite

An overbite can cause excessive wear on the lower teeth, gum irritation and can also cause jaw problems.

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryUnderbite

This occurs when the bottom teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth and can interfere with the normal function of front teeth and molars, and can lead to jaw problems.

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryGaps in Teeth

Gaps can trap food and bacteria and lead to tooth decay and gum disease. It can also cause teeth to shift into the empty spaces and increase misalignment.

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryOpen Bite

An open bite can interfere with chewing and can cause speech impairment and jaw problems.

Invisalign - Dr. Jayne Hoffman DentistryCrossbite

This is a symptom of jaw misalignment, which can cause worn-down teeth, gum disease or both.
