Why Get Braces

What can I expect with Invisalign?
Invisalign is treatment option that doesn’t involve any brackets, bands or wires. Clear, virtually invisible Invisalign aligners work to straighten your teeth over time. Made of smooth plastic, Invisalign’s aligners fit comfortably to your teeth. The aligners are switched out every two weeks.
One unique advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, so that you can eat, brush your teeth and floss as normally. In addition, Invisalign aligners are simple to clean and don’t involve any dietary restrictions. On average, people wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours each day.
What is the typical length of treatment?
Typically, people with Invisalign wear the aligners for 9-18 months. You’ll go in for monthly orthodontic visits, just as you would for standard braces. The exact time, however, will depend on your unique situation, and Dr. Vaysman will advise you in this regard. Some patients need to go in for monthly visits, while six weeks is the recommended time in other cases.
