We, at Hummingbird Dental, are proud to offer Invisalign, the world’s most advanced clear aligners brought to you by Align Technology. Learn more about the many benefits of Invisalign!

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign utilizes a series of clear custom aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and apply precise and gentle pressure to shift your teeth into alignment. You must wear the aligners between 20 and 22 hours each day. As you move on from one set of aligners to the next, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment following your treatment plan. After you achieve the desired results, you will need to wear retainers to ensure your teeth do not move back out of alignment.

What Is Invisalign Teen?

Until recently, orthodontists did not recommend Invisalign for teens because of concerns they would not comply with wearing the aligners 20-22 hours a day and because some teens have permanent teeth still erupting, which could interfere with treatment. Invisalign Teen addresses these concerns using compliance indicators that and built-in eruption tabs that maintain the space for teeth not fully erupted.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers numerous benefits. Here are a few:

  • Discreet Orthodontic Solution: Invisalign’s aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth and achieve your ideal smile without anyone knowing. 
  • Corrects Multiple Orthodontic Issues: The virtually invisible aligners correct a range of mild to complex cases, including gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. 
  • Quicker results: With Invisalign, you’ll achieve the straight smile you desire up to 50 percent faster than with traditional metal braces. 
  • Fewer Office Visits: Unlike metal braces, which require frequent office visits for tightening the rubber bands or wires, you’ll receive the aligners in advance, meaning you’ll need fewer visits to monitor your treatment’s progress. 
  • Precise and Predictable: The proprietary SmartTrack material and the SmartForce features allow Invisalign to effectively and precisely correct complex cases with predictable results.
  • Unparalleled Comfort: The plastic aligner material is exceptionally gentle on your cheeks and gum, unlike traditional metal braces, with their sharp wires and edges that can cut or scrape the inside of your mouth.
  • Conveniently Straighten Your Smile: With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without impacting your life. Just remove your aligners and eat your favorite foods without restriction, brush and floss with ease, and enjoy your favorite activities. When done, pop them back in!
  • Beautifully Straight Teeth: Invisalign’s stunning results speak for themselves. You’ll enjoy beautifully straight teeth and a smile you love!
