slide 4:

If you are visiting a family dentist’s office to learn more about orthodontic treatment then you need to know the differences between Invisalign and braces.

slide 5:

You probably have seen Invisalign advertised on television because these clear aligners are the newest fastest and easiest way to straighten mild malocclusions of the teeth.

slide 6:

In the past many individuals avoided orthodontic treatment unless they had major problems such as severe overbites or large gaps between their teeth.

slide 7:

This was because the only type of treatment available was metallic wire and bracket braces that were easy for everyone to see and also felt uncomfortable in the mouth.

slide 8:


slide 9:

Fortunately with Invisalign you can improve simple dental problems by shifting the front teeth into a better position to create a gorgeous smile and a stronger bite.

slide 10:

The most visible difference between braces and Invisalign is that you can see braces inside your mouth and other people can also see the wires or ceramic brackets.

slide 11:

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment because your dentist can create the devices quickly from molds after taking medical images of your mouth and facial structure.

slide 12:

A computer software program is able to create approximately 25 sets of Invisalign aligners that are each made in a slightly different configuration.

slide 13:


slide 14:

When you receive your first set of Invisalign aligners you will wear the devices for approximately two weeks and return for another evaluation from the dentist.

slide 15:

In some cases adjustments are required for future aligners especially for teenagers who grow rapidly.

slide 16:

The dentist will tell you to wear Invisalign aligners for 23 hours each day and you should only remove the devices for oral health care that includes brushing and flossing.

slide 17:

Invisalign aligners are almost impossible to see but a dentist may permit removal of the items for special occasions.

slide 18:

If you follow a dentist’s guidelines for wearing Invisalign then your teeth will shift into the correct positions faster.

slide 19:


slide 20:

You will wear one Invisalign on your top teeth and one on your bottom teeth to move teeth slowly into better positions to reduce gaps and misalignment.

slide 21:

An Invisalign aligner is made of a durable plastic that will begin to show some wear and tear over the two weeks it is worn.

slide 22:

You feel slight pressure on your teeth as the devices push against dental surfaces.

slide 23:

Make sure to wear the aligners in the correct order that a dentist recommends and if an Invisalign aligner degrades completely then contact a dentist to learn how to deal with the situation.

slide 24:


slide 25:

While you might want to wear Invisalign aligners instead of braces only a dentist can determine if the devices are suitable for your malocclusions.

slide 26:

If you have severe misalignments of your teeth then a dentist can customize braces that are worn for a longer amount of time.

slide 27:

Today there are lingual braces worn on the backs of teeth or color-matching ceramic braces that are difficult for others to see inside your mouth.

slide 28:

Invisalign aligners cost less than braces and you do not need to visit a family dentist’s office as often.
