What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a state-of-the-art method to straighten your teeth. Invisalign relies on clear, removable, and comfortable aligners that place gentle force on your teeth to get them to their optimal positions. The Invisalign system delivers excellent results that are equitable to the more traditional treatment options but without the additional hassle and discomforts.

Can Anyone Use Invisalign?

Not every patient is eligible for the Invisalign treatment. The best candidates will have mild to moderate problems that can be treated with this system. We also recommend this treatment only for responsible and committed patients who will wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day.

Why Should I Use Invisalign?

Our Portland and Beaverton Invisalign patients rave about the invisible feature of this system. However, there are more benefits than that.

The fact that you can remove them means that you can eat and drink as you wish while in treatment. It also means you do not need to relearn how to brush and floss, both of which are different when wearing braces. Their smooth plastic is comfortable to wear and does not cause the same irritations that metal does. And you adjust them by changing aligners, so you come into the office less frequently. Invisalign has a lot of benefits. The aligners are removable which means that you will be able to continue to eat and drink your favorite things even while undergoing treatment. Your brushing and flossing routine can also remain unchanged. The aligners are made of a smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear and will not cause irritations to your mouth the same way that metal does. Instead of coming into the office for adjustments, you switch to the next set of aligners in the series which means that you will need to come into our Portland office less often. Invisalign offers patients the most convenience and flexibility out of all of the treatment options available.

How Does It Work?

Invisalign places gentle and strategic pressure on your teeth, allowing them to be moved quickly and effectively. Each aligner moves them further into place, with you switching out the aligners every two weeks.

After about 15 months, treatment will be over, and you will have the smile of your dreams. To be treated by the top Invisalign doctor in Portland, Oregon, call our office to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.

    What Are The Primary Benefits Of Invisalign?

    Invisalign aligners are made of a clear and virtually invisible material called Smart Track. The comfortability and invisible nature of your custom removable aligners will make them easy to integrate into your daily life. You will be able to continue to eat and drink everything you enjoy as long as you remove your aligners before you eat or drink anything. You will also be able to continue brushing and flossing your teeth as usual to maintain good oral hygiene. Differing from traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use any wires or brackets which means that your mouth will not experience any irritation or friction. Your check-up appointments will also be more spaced out and shorter since they will only involve quick progress checks. Finally, Invisalign’s advanced technology will allow you to preview your entire treatment step by step, allowing you have more control over the final result which you will also be able to preview.

    How Many Patients Are In Invisalign Treatment?

    Today, over 3 million patients worldwide have benefited from Invisalign treatment and the number of patients who perfect their smile with Invisalign continues to grow. At your next appointment, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the Invisalign treatment. We look forward to getting you started on the smile you have always dreamed of.
