How Clear Aligners Work

Invisalign and SureSmile use a series of custom-made clear aligners that apply gentle pressure to the teeth. As you progress through your series of aligners, your teeth will gradually move closer to their ideal positions. For maximum effectiveness, you should keep your treatment in your mouth for 20 – 22 hours each day (the closer to 22 hours, the better).

You will visit us periodically so we can monitor your progress. After you make your way through all of your aligners (which takes, on average, 12 – 18 months), you can expect to have a beautifully straight smile.

Good Candidates for Clear Aligners

Clear aligner treatment is capable of correcting most mild to moderate cases of dental misalignment. Here are a few examples of issues that they are commonly used to treat:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth can easily trap food between them and increase your risk of decay and bad breath. Invisalign, perhaps with the help of extractions, can give your teeth the space they need to function optimally.

Gaps Between Teeth

Gaps between the teeth may seem cute, but they can expose your gums to harm. Invisalign or SureSmile can gently move the teeth closer together to protect your oral health and enhance your appearance.

Bite Alignment

Issues like overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite can have a negative impact on the appearance and function of your smile. Clear aligners, often with the help of accessories, can address most cases of poor bite alignment.

The Benefits of Invisalign & SureSmile

Clear aligners offer some remarkable benefits, including:

  • Efficient tooth movements. The average treatment time with Invisalign is much shorter than what is common with traditional braces.
  • No dietary restrictions. Clear aligners are removable, so you can simply take them out of your mouth at mealtimes in order to enjoy all of your favorite foods.
  • Easy oral hygiene. The removability of the aligners makes it easy to brush and floss.
  • Quick appointments. Check-in appointments for clear aligners are usually very fast. Both SureSmile and Invisalign are manufactured to be as comfortable against the oral tissues as possible.

How Much Do Clear Aligners Cost?
