How Invisalign Works

Although Invisalign is a household name, many patients aren’t entirely sure how this revolutionary teeth-straightening treatment works. Although the technology behind it is complex, the process isn’t. After our dentist has created your custom treatment plan, they will use the iTero digital impression scanner to take impressions of your mouth, which will be used to create your clear aligner series. From there, you will wear each set of trays for a few weeks at a time. Once complete, you’ll transition to the next set, which will pick up where your last aligners left off. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll see your teeth move closer and closer to their ideal position!

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign in Fresno is ideal for correcting mild to moderate levels of misalignment, including:

Crowded Teeth

Do your teeth overlap? Unfortunately, this creates small crevices that food particles and other debris can hide in, leaving you prone to cavities and gum disease. The good news is that Invisalign’s clear aligners can guide your teeth into a healthier position, improving the look and health of your smile simultaneously.

Gaps Between Teeth

Spaced-out teeth are another orthodontic issue that negatively affects the look of your smile as well as your oral health. Since patients struggling with gapped teeth are more prone to dental problems, it’s best to start treatment with Invisalign sooner rather than later. Their clear aligners can effectively bridge the gaps, providing you with a healthy, beautiful smile.

Bite Alignment

If your teeth don’t come together properly, you may have a hard time chewing, be vulnerable to enamel wear, and suffer from teeth grinding/clenching. Fortunately, Invisalign can correct a number of bite alignment issues, from overbites to underbites.
