Invisalign® treatment has gained prominence in recent years as a discreet alternative to metal braces, especially among teens and young adults.
Despite their effectiveness, braces have turned some people off because of their appearance.
As a result, interest in alternative, invisible tooth straightening methods has increased.
The Invisalign method uses a succession of clear trays made of transparent medical-grade polyurethane resin.
The trays fit over your teeth to secretly align them.
They are so discreet that onlookers won’t even know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.
How does Invisalign work?
Doctors at MVP Smiles will use 3D digital scanning to make a 3D image of your mouth.
Then we will develop your treatment plan, making 3D models of your mouth for each stage.
These 3D models are used to craft your personalized series of clear aligners.
Every two weeks, you will receive a new set of clear trays that will move your teeth closer to the final position laid out in your treatment plan.
You must wear the trays for at least 22 hours a day.
You can remove them to eat, drink, floss and brush just like you would normally, but if you don’t wear the aligners often enough, your teeth will shift back to their previous positions.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The biggest advantage of Invisalign clear aligners is that they’re invisible.
They do their work without the brackets and wires of metal braces, which can often trap food and hinder brushing.
Invisalign trays are also known for their comfort level since they are specially customized for each individual.
Traditional braces are not known for comfort.
Because of their customized design, the trays can move teeth horizontally and vertically, even rotating them.
Since we ship your new Invisalign aligners to you, there is no need to come into the office as often as with braces, which need regular adjustments.
Correcting Misaligned Teeth
Invisalign can also fix teeth that are misaligned.
If the lower and upper jaws don’t line up properly, they can lead to further oral health problems like caries, gingivitis, halitosis, sensitive teeth, tooth chipping, tooth loss, and hindering your ability to speak and eat.
If teeth are straightened out properly, these problems can end.
Invisalign not only addresses immediate dental issues, but it can help ward off severe long-term problems as well.
Straight teeth are an indicator of a healthy mouth, and they improve your smile.
Improving Oral Health
When crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth are repositioned, dental health improves.
When teeth are crowded or don’t line up properly, they can obstruct certain areas.
This makes it harder to brush there.
Food can accumulate, leading to the growth of bacteria, which in turn can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Straightening teeth can fix this by opening up enclosed areas, making it easier to floss and brush.
