what is invisalign

What Is Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that utilizes a series of custom-made, removable trays to gradually straighten teeth without the need for traditional metal braces. Made from a clear, smooth plastic material, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for adults and teens who desire a more discreet orthodontic solution. Each set of aligners is designed to gently shift your teeth into the desired position, providing a comfortable and convenient way to achieve a straighter smile.

What Problems Does Invisalign Treat?


A cross bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not align properly when biting down. Invisalign can correct cross bites by gradually shifting the misaligned teeth into their proper positions, improving bite alignment and overall oral health.

An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap significantly with the lower front teeth. Invisalign treatment can effectively address overbites by guiding the teeth into a more harmonious position, reducing the prominence of the upper teeth and improving facial aesthetics.
An underbite occurs when the lower front teeth protrude past the upper front teeth when biting down. Invisalign can correct underbites by gently moving the lower teeth backward and the upper teeth forward, bringing them into proper alignment and improving bite function.

How long is an Invisalign treatment?
For most people, Invisalign treatment lasts for around 9 to 18 months. For the lucky few, it can last as little as 6 months, but for others, it may take up to 24 months. It all depends on several factors, such as the state of your teeth before treatment.
Invisalign works because of the near-constant pressure. Therefore, it is necessary to wear the aligners during sleep. The manufacturers of Invisalign suggest wearing the braces for 20 to 22 hours each day and only removing them while eating or brushing the teeth.
Molars, especially the third molars or wisdom teeth, can be more challenging to move during Invisalign treatment. Wisdom teeth are typically the last to emerge, often in early adulthood. Their location at the back of the mouth and the potential for impaction can make them resistant to movement.

I think Dr. Darling deserves 10 stars, but I can only give 5. I haven’t always had the best... experiences when it has come to dental care in the past but with Dr. Darling and her staff, it has always been better than expected. I have had the misfortune of needing to contact her office twice for urgent dental concerns. Both times the doctor personally contacted me OUTSIDE OF WORK HOURS to help me. If that isn’t the greatest level of patient care, I don’t know what is. I would highly more
