West Los Angeles Dentist 9 Blog 9 How Invisalign Re-Aligns Teeth, an Orthodontic Experience

If you have been looking for a discreet solution to your dental issues, Invisalign could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Perhaps you’ve heard about Invisalign before, and you have a lot of questions about the process. If so, your questions will be answered right now!

While this system does almost seem too good to be true, Invisalign is a gentle way to move your teeth into their desired position with proper alignment. Nobody will ever know; they will just notice your gleaming smile. So, how is this even a possibility?

It is actually quite a straightforward process. Your Invisalign aligners will be custom-made for you from impressions and images taken of your teeth by a professional. That same professional will plan out your entire treatment and have your aligners made accordingly.

You will have several sets of aligners as your teeth move, shift, and change. Then you will wear them in order and change them out when directed to by your chosen professional. Each aligner will fit snugly over your teeth and while be ever so slightly different from the one beforehand. 

When you proceed to change aligners, you may feel as if the new aligner feels slightly off at first. This is only because of the fact that the plastic from the aligner is putting additional pressure on your teeth in order to move them towards the correct alignment position. 

This is only done in small movements, not all at once. During each stage of this successful cosmetic treatment, only some of your teeth will need to move. Once certain teeth move, the design of the aligners will allow you to focus on the teeth in need so that they can move into the correct position.

Because of how thoroughly your treatments are planned, your treatment will not cause pain.

So, is Invisalign right for you? Well, the fact is that Invisalign can treat a huge range of common dental misalignments. However, it isn’t always the right option for everyone.
