You've probably heard about Invisalign, the "invisible braces," as an alternative to traditional metal braces. The Invisalign process invisaligninvolves wearing a series of clear plastic trays, called aligners, that place pressure against the teeth in a similar manner as metal braces. The aligners are exchanged after a certain amount of time until the teeth move into their final positions. At Franklin Dental in Franklin, WI, Dr. John Olsen offers Invisalign to his patients who are interested in straightening their teeth. Here's what you need to know about the Invisalign system.

The advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign has made a huge difference in the lives of many dental patients; it's allowed them to have beautiful, even smiles. The clear aligner trays, designed and manufactured from measurements taken by your Franklin dentist, are practically invisible against the teeth, making them an inconspicuous way to manage your dental health. Made of a thin, flexible plastic material, Invisalign is also much more comfortable than traditional braces. The aligners allow for regular eating and hygiene, as they are designed to be removed during meals and for cleaning.

What to consider before getting Invisalign

The most important thing to remember about Invisalign is that the progress is dependent on the patient's commitment. The aligners need to be worn a minimum of 20 to 22 hours each day, including during sleep, to maximize results. Because Invisalign trays are relatively small and removable, they can be easily misplaced. Losing an aligner can delay treatment time or hinder the progress of tooth movement. For these reasons, your Franklin dentist often suggests other orthodontic treatments for younger patients.
