How does Invisalign work?

Have you ever thought that Invisalign clear braces sound too good to be true? Well, they aren’t! With Invisalign in Van Nuys, CA, you can straighten your smile without the inconvenience of metal while still keeping your orthodontia low-profile.

A Series of Clear Aligners

While traditional metal braces typically stay on your teeth for years at a time, Invisalign uses a progressive series of clear aligner trays that you switch out every few weeks. We tailor your Invisalign treatment specifically for your mouth, which means that each tray you wear gets your smile a little closer to where it needs to be. 

You start by wearing your first straightening tray in the series for at least 22 hours each day. After approximately two weeks, you will discard this first tray and move on to the second tray. Your Invisalign aligners use gentle forces and pressure to move your teeth as you progress from aligner to aligner.

Gradual Teeth Straightening 

When you treat with Invisalign in Van Nuys, our dentists design a treatment plan that’s specific for your mouth. The amount of trays you’ll need to wear throughout the program varies, but typical patients can require as few as 20 or as many as 50 or more. 

Your teeth will move gradually at a rate that’s safe and appropriate for you. Because your trays are made from clear plastic, and because you remove the trays for eating each day, you’ll be able to see your progress as your teeth start to straighten out.
