What can Invisalign treat?
Invisalign has changed orthodontics. Invisalign clear plastic aligners have appealed to nearly 10 million patients all around the globe. People love Invisalign, and for a good reason – virtually no one will know you’re straightening your teeth during the process with their proprietary clear braces.
So what can Invisalign fix?
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
It’s important to note that not everyone will be an ideal candidate for Invisalign. To fix some orthodontic issues, other treatments such as braces could produce a better result. It’s essential to get expert orthodontic consultation. Start yours today!

If you’re looking to straighten your smile, then Invisalign® is probably right for you. Invisalign® is the improved version of braces for patients who want a straighter smile without a mouthful of wires and metal. You or your teen may be a good candidate if:
- You never had braces when you were younger and needed them.
- The traditional braces you had as a child didn’t complete the job.
- You hate the idea of wire braces and worry about your looks at work or school.
Invisalign can straighten your teeth effectively and quickly, without the discomfort and self-esteem issues associated with traditional braces.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® works as effectively as traditional braces while remaining discreet and comfortable. Patients experience:
- Easy dental visits to create the aligners and take molds of the teeth.
- Simple, clear aligners that fit comfortably in the mouth and are virtually invisible.
- The ability to remove the aligners for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene
- No annoyances like food getting stuck in wires or between the braces and gums.
- Fast treatment times (typically less than 18 months).
We will precisely plan your treatment from start to finish. A certified Invisalign® lab will custom-make your clear braces in sets and deliver them to our office. Dr. Martin will then instruct you on proper wear and care – typically, aligners are worn all night and as much during the day as possible.
Wear each set of aligners for two weeks. Then move onto the next pair in your series. With Invisalign®, there is no irritation or pain, although some patients report feeling a slight amount of pressure for the first 72 hours after beginning a new set.
Convinced that Invisalign® can give you a smile you want? Having a smile, you can be proud of is possible!
What to expect when using Invisalign.
While Invisalign offers many benefits, the diligence and commitment that it takes to make Invisalign a successful treatment means that it is not for everyone. You will need to brush and floss after every meal to ensure that plaque and bacteria doesn’t get trapped in your aligners, which can promote tooth decay and gum disease. Furthermore, you will need to brush and clean your aligners daily.
During an initial consultation, you will meet with our team, who will evaluate your teeth and decide with you if Invisalign is the best treatment option for you. With Invisalign, your clear aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth.
Depending on the customized treatment plan, you may need to change your personalized aligners weekly. Your SmileLife orthodontist will likely have you schedule a check-up appointment every 2-3 months to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is working correctly. Similar to treatment after metal braces are removed, you will be given a retainer to make sure that your teeth don’t shift.
