What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a dentistry treatment with custom-made, near-invisible aligners that realign your teeth and fix common problems such as crowding and gaps. Made from smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic, Invisalign does not require much adjusting as traditional braces. The average Invisalign dental treatment time is 6 months. This advanced dentistry product has produced millions of smiling patients since its release.

How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to generate a series of custom-made plastic aligners that fit your teeth exactly. Each aligner moves your teeth incrementally into its new position over weeks or months, depending on how quickly you wear them from one to another. Eventually, after enough time wearing Invisalign trays, you will have straightened teeth.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign can straighten teeth only if the dental treatment is followed step by step. Here is an overview of the stages when using Invisalign:
- First Visit: Your Invisalign case is created based on a 3D digital model of your smile. You also go through a complete gum and teeth exam. Custom bite trays are used for future use.
- Alignment Phase: During this phase, you will visit with our Invisalign DC team at Evenly Orthodontics every six to eight weeks to ensure that your dental treatment continues to progress well.
- Retainer Phase: After all Invisalign braces have been removed, retainers are worn for an additional three to maintain the new smile. Since Invisalign is removable, this three-month phase can be completed anywhere and at any time that is convenient for you!
Why choose Invisalign?
Invisalign provides a discreet, simple way to achieve your perfect smile while being healthier for your teeth and gums overall! This makes it the perfect dentistry product for those seeking to improve their smile without resorting to a more invasive treatment, like dental implants or braces.
Since no metal brackets are used, it is much easier to maintain cleanliness and prevent cavities or abrasions while wearing aligners. The Invisalign dental treatment can be completed without any headgear or retainers, making this product an attractive choice for those who want to straighten their teeth.
Easier to Clean
When you have braces, it can be tough to clean your teeth on a daily basis thoroughly. Food may accumulate in hard-to-reach places, resulting in poor hygiene if not adequately cleaned.
You can take Invisalign aligners out and clean them with ease. Because the Invisalign system is completely detachable, you won't have to worry about flossing or brushing between brackets and wires. Brushing and flossing like you would when not having braces can go a long way in protecting your gums and teeth over time.
Smile! There are No Food Restrictions
After receiving braces, orthodontists advise their patients against eating particular meals or chewing gum. Unfortunately, some patients neglect to follow this and have their brackets or wires destroyed.
If you opt for Invisalign treatment, you won't have to worry about any food limitations with this dentistry product. You may easily remove Invisalign aligners from your mouth, allowing you to eat whatever you want without damaging them.
New appliances in your mouth may be uncomfortable at first. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are typically more pleasant than braces.  This modern dentistry treatment is more comfortable for two primary reasons:
- No Sharp Edges: Brackets have sharp corners that can cause discomfort to your cheeks. The edges of Invisalign are smooth.
- No Tightening: Your orthodontist will need to tighten your brackets. You'll only need a few aligners in Invisalign, and you'll change them every two weeks. Each aligner differs slightly from the one before it. When you insert new aligners, you may feel a slight tightness at first, but it should not last more than a day or two.
One of the most frequently noted problems with traditional braces is that they are unsightly and unattractive. Braces may hide your smile, so you don't want to cover it up. Fortunately, Invisalign dental treatment can give the same results as braces without being so obvious. When you smile, Invisalign aligners are constructed of transparent plastic, making them extremely difficult to see.
Fewer Trips to the Orthodontist
Braces require several visits to the orthodontist to have their wires tightened. On the other hand, patients who wear Invisalign are given numerous pairs of aligners that they can switch out at home.
Being an Invisalign patient still requires occasional visits with our Invisalign DC team to assess the status of your teeth but your aligners don't require as frequent adjustments as patients with braces. A patient with braces can expect to visit their
Brackets can make the discoloration of teeth more visible. In the places where the brackets were, some people with braces experienced minor discoloration of their teeth. Discoloration is most often seen in people who eat a lot of sugar or other staining foods. While there's a slight possibility that your teeth will become discolored due to braces, Invisalign can help you avoid it. The aligners aren't attached to your teeth, so proper hygiene is simple.
Oral Health with Aligners
During the Invisalign dental treatment, it is essential to maintain good oral health to prevent damage or irritation of your teeth and gums and so that Invisalign aligner trays remain effective at correcting your smile.  Evenly Orthodontics provides Invisalign patients with some recommendations on how to care for their teeth while wearing Invisalign:
- Avoid chewing tobacco products as they cause staining during Invisalign dental treatment.
- Drink plenty of filtered water throughout the day as sugary drinks like soda tend to stain more easily and lead to cavities.
- Make sure to brush your teeth after any sugary drinks, even if it's been a few hours since you finished the beverage.
- And of course, floss daily for improved gum health over time.
