How Does Invisalign Work?

Torrance Invisalign

When it comes to straightening teeth, Invisalign has numerous advantages over traditional braces that are causing people to change the way that they look at orthodontics forever. The Invisalign process is not only giving patients a pain-free experience while remaining virtually undetectable, it has also proven to be better for your teeth. The Invisalign system is so convenient and provides such excellent results, that more and more people are choosing this system over traditional braces. Dr. Rita Chuang and Dr. James E. Eckhart have been a Super Elite Invisalign provider and ranked in the top 1% in the world of Invisalign providers. The friendly and experienced staff at Breeze Orthodontics can assist you in learning about Invisalign and determining if it is right for you.

Learning about Invisalign and how it works can better help you in making the decision to choose Invisalign over traditional braces. The concept behind the Invisalign system is to cause the bone holding the teeth to slowly remodel and thereby allow the teeth to move. To accomplish this, only the amount of movement that is biologically possible in a 1-2 week period is attempted, requiring very small amounts of pressure. Each aligner used by the patient must be custom made to ensure that this slow movement ratio is maintained by applying a small amount of pressure on many of the teeth at the same time. After an aligner has moved the teeth the appropriate amount, a new aligner that is next in the progression will begin to be used. Each aligner is used for approximately 1-2 weeks. The patient must wear each aligner for 22 hours every day in order to ensure that the movement remains steady and slow. After the orthodontist is satisfied no further correction is needed, the patient must begin to wear a nightly retainer while they are sleeping, in order to prevent the teeth from continuing to move due to various pressures from the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue.
