What is Invisalign?

This treatment uses innovative technology and a series of clear trays designed to align your smile gradually. Each tray consists of clear, smooth plastic, making them appear nearly invisible.

A trusted Invisalign lab crafts your aligners to ensure they fit comfortably within your smile. Invisalign works by replacing each set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth become straighter. This helps streamline treatment time and ensure ideal results as you graduate through each set of aligners.

What Can Aligners Correct?

Invisalign is ideal for treating mild to moderate alignment concerns. These clear trays are useful for correcting issues that can also interfere with your long-term dental health. Below are the most common orthodontic problems Invisalign treatment can fix:

  • Crowded & crooked teeth
  • Unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Is Invisalign Better Than Metal Braces?

close up of woman putting on invisalign clear bracesTraditional braces are still a reliable and effective treatment option for addressing moderate to complex orthodontic issues. The treatment involves metal brackets, an archwire, and sometimes rubber bands. These components work together to apply pressure and straighten teeth. Many people don’t like the way braces look and are wary of the discomfort and lengthy treatment time.

Clear aligners often work best for mild to moderate orthodontic cases. Instead of using metal and tension to straighten teeth and correct bite issues, your Invisalign trays use specifically molded clear plastic. Invisalign’s technique relies on precise tray fabrication to move teeth into ideal position and ensure lasting results.

What Can I Expect from the Treatment Process?

At Boise Beach Dentistry, our dentists conduct a thorough consultation and dental health exam to see if you qualify. Dr. Wagers and Dr. Bolinske take time to discuss your concerns and treatment goals to gain a full understanding of your needs.

Exams help us determine your orthodontic situation and the complexity of your needs. If you qualify for Invisalign, our team explains the process in detail. Below are common steps you can expect from treatment.

Treatment Planning – Our dentists use advanced technology, such as dental x-rays, to capture clear images of your teeth and gums. We use these pictures along with background knowledge of your oral health to make honest recommendations and a customized treatment plan. Our dentists can also estimate how long treatment should take and show you detailed images of what your smile will look like on completion.

Tray Customization – We use digital images to make accurate impressions of your smile. Our team then sends them to a trusted Invisalign lab. There, your series of aligners are created with precision and skill. This fabrication makes for ideal comfort and optimal treatment results.

Aligning Teeth – You will need to wear your trays for two weeks before replacing it with the next set. This is essential for making sure your treatment advances correctly. You may need to visit our office every six weeks so our dentists can keep track of your progress and adjust your aligners when necessary.

Invisalign Aligners for Teens & Adults

Because the trays are removable, it can be easier to forget to put them back in after eating or brushing your teeth. Therefore, Dr. Wagers and Dr. Bolinske only recommend this treatment to responsible teens and adults who can easily follow the required guidelines.

Invisalign can be a great way to straighten your teen’s smile without compromising their image or self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment is most common during the teen years, as development moves from losing baby teeth and transitions into permanent teeth. Our dentists work closely with your teen to promote long-term oral health and preserve confidence with clear aligners.

If you are an adult who never got braces, you can benefit significantly from custom Invisalign treatment. At Boise Beach Dentistry, our team understands that most adults want a healthy smile and straighter teeth. We are proud to provide a trusted alternative to traditional braces with clear aligners designed to comfortably and discreetly correct orthodontic issues.

Benefits of Invisalign

When wearing your clear trays, there is no need to make changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine. Caring for them is straightforward. You need only remove them to eat and brush and floss your teeth. Be sure to rinse them before placing your aligners back in your smile.
