What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth and correct issues like crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. The aligners are custom-made for each patient using 3D digital imaging technology, and they are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment is typically more comfortable than braces, as it does not involve metal brackets or wires, and the aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Treatment duration varies depending on the complexity of the case, but it usually ranges from 12 to 18 months.

Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, and gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign Rochester Hills can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?
- Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a more attractive option for those who are self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces.
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic, which makes them more comfortable to wear than traditional braces with metal wires and brackets.
- Removability: Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene, which allows for easier maintenance of overall dental health during treatment.
- Customization: Invisalign treatment is customized specifically for each patient through the use of digital impressions and 3D computer modeling, ensuring a precise and effective treatment plan.
- Fewer office visits: Invisalign typically requires fewer office visits than traditional braces, as the aligners can be switched out at home according to the treatment plan provided by the orthodontist.
- Improved oral hygiene: Since the aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing, patients can maintain better oral hygiene during treatment compared to traditional braces, which can be more challenging to clean around.
- No food restrictions: With traditional braces, certain foods can damage the brackets and wires, but Invisalign wearers can enjoy any type of food without worry, as the aligners can be removed while eating.
- Less irritation: The smooth plastic of Invisalign aligners is less likely to irritate the cheeks and gums compared to metal brackets and wires.
- Predictable results: Invisalign’s digital treatment planning allows patients and orthodontists to see a clear representation of the anticipated results before treatment even begins, helping to manage expectations and set achievable goals.
- Suitable for various dental issues: Invisalign can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites, making it a versatile treatment option for many patients.
