Invisalign
Albany, OR


Set of clear aligners resting in an Invisalign® branded case on a blue backgroundInvisalign is a dental orthodontic prosthesis custom made of a clear thermoplastic material. The trays are fitted on teeth like dental retainers and are used to straighten teeth over some time. Our dentist will take you through your Invisalign treatment and will use 3D imaging to create a specialized treatment plan from the initial state of your teeth all through to the desired results. Our dentist uses these images in the treatment plan to create a set of aligners, each different from the other, to help manipulate the teeth into position. The aligners are slightly straighter than the teeth each time, so they can move in place slightly every time you put on a new set. Our dental professionals at Jeffrey Carl DMD will help you achieve your desired look.

Benefits of Invisalign


Invisalign trays are worn for two weeks at a time, 22 hours each day for every set. Within this period, the Invisalign will pressure the teeth to shift and match it. Aligners are inconspicuous and are removable dental appliances that are a substitute for conventional braces that are made of metal. A full aligner treatment could last for a year, depending on the desired results. Invisalign works better and faster than traditional metal braces and is a preferred option for patients who are hesitant to wear metal braces.

Invisalign helps improve one's appearance and smile. As teeth are more aligned, it becomes easier to clean between them and thus improve your oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene minimizes the risk of developing oral diseases and reduces the stress on the jawbone due to teeth misalignment. Clear aligners are more comfortable and are barely noticeable. Cleaning teeth when undergoing Invisalign treatment is also easier as compared to traditional metal braces, where dislodging food from the wires and brackets may be difficult as they are not removable. Unlike metal braces, they also require less maintenance and repair, which are prone to breakage or loosening. They are also removable, so it's easier to eat and manage your oral health.

How Does Invisalign Work?


Invisalign has bumps or attachments that make the teeth move into a detailed alignment. Some patients may require to have buttons and elastics attached to their Invisalign if more force is needed to change bite symmetry. It is important to wear the Invisalign for the recommended time to ensure maximum results.

Not wearing your aligners for 22 hours each day will compromise the treatment and require you to wear the aligners longer. Be sure to remove your aligners and brush your teeth after every meal and rinse after snacking to ensure food debris is flushed out. Bacteria could breed well inside the Invisalign if dental care is neglected and cause oral health problems like halitosis.

A new set of Invisalign may feel slightly uncomfortable initially; however, this should go away after the teeth shift. Invisalign is the more advanced and preferred type of orthodontia treatment to align your teeth into position than conventional methods.
