Crooked teeth can affect the health and beauty of your smile. In the past, a dentist's main option for treating malocclusion was braces.
Today, tooth misalignment can be treated with Invisalign®, an invisible, comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontics.
Find out how the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute in Troy, MI, can straighten your teeth.
Invisalign Treatment An Overview
The Benefits of Invisalign Why People Want Invisible Orthodontics
Invisalign Aligners Are DiscreetThe clear aligners are difficult to notice, even when people are up close. That makes Invisalign ideal for those of us who want an inconspicuous orthodontic treatment.
Aligner Trays Are SafeThe clear aligners are sturdy and will not cut or poke at the insides of your mouth. They are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic molded to fit onto your teeth.
Trays Are Easy to RemoveInvisalign trays are removable. Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods, and won't struggle to properly brush and floss their teeth during the treatment process.
Caring for Trays Is SimpleCleaning Invisalign aligners is simple. Patients can simply brush the aligners clean with a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
Aligners Are More Comfortable Than BracesThe brackets and wires of braces can scrape and irritate the insides of the lips and cheeks. Invisalign trays are smooth, and are consequently much more comfortable to wear.

Good Candidates for Invisalign Ideal Invisible Orthodontics Patients
You're a Teen or Adult
Invisalign is an excellent option for adults and older teenagers. The removable clear aligners won't interrupt your daily routine, whether it's work, school, or social gatherings.
You Have Crooked Teeth
Invisalign treatment is great for people who have teeth that are crooked. Misalignment of the dental arch or the jaw position can be treated using other orthodontic procedures.
You're in Good Health
Apart from tooth misalignment, patients should be in otherwise good dental health. If you suffer from other dental problems, those may be treated before you undergo Invisalign.
How Long Does It Take for Invisalign to Straighten Teeth?
Straightening your teeth may initially sound like a long, drawn-out process. However, with Invisalign, it may not take as long as you think. The full duration of treatment takes an average of about 12 months, and patients can begin seeing results in just a few months.
When you speak to us about Invisalign, we’ll explain what you can expect based on the extent of treatment you need to correct gaps, crowding, and other issues.

Taking Care of Your Invisalign Trays
Clean your aligners regularly
Clean your aligners each time you brush your teeth by using toothpaste and a soft toothbrush to scrub them gently. This helps remove bacteria from the aligners that could compromise your teeth or your oral health.
Steer clear of abrasives
Make the most out of Invisalign’s transparency by avoiding substances that can compromise it. Using soap, denture cleaner, or mouthwash to scrub your aligners can dull their appearance, making them easier to see when you’re wearing them.
Do not eat with your aligners in
One of the biggest draws of Invisalign is that, unlike traditional braces, you can take them out whenever you need to eat or drink anything other than water. Remember to remove them when you eat or drink; otherwise, you could damage or stain them. The only thing you should consume while wearing your aligners is water.
Keep your case handy
Whether you are taking them out to eat a meal or brush your teeth, make it a habit to place your aligners in their designated case. You run a risk of damaging them when you temporarily place them on the edge of a sink or on another surface.
