The Invisalign teeth straightening process is fast becoming the most requested way to straighten teeth without braces.

An even, appealing smile has never been easier to get at Stamford Dental Arts, not far away in Stamford, Connecticut. Achieve a younger look with clear plastic trays, called aligners that do the work of metal braces without the shine. Combined with state-of-the-art, sophisticated 3D software employed by your Stamford dentists, this technology delivers straight smiles to most adults and mature teens.
The benefits of Invisalign are due to the medical-grade plastic that straightens your teeth without the need for wires, springs, metal brackets or rubber bands. A series of clear aligners gently move your teeth into their proper place. The gradual pressure applied on your teeth with each new aligner means that you experience less discomfort and, in most cases, shorter treatment times than with traditional braces.
You can even remove the trays for short periods of time to eat, drink, brush and floss normally. You can enjoy your favorite foods with Invisalign — even eat an apple without the intrusion of brackets and wires. And the smooth surfaces of the plastic provide your cheeks and tongue a comfort level unlike any other form of orthodontics.
Invisalign pain is nearly non-existent. The slight discomfort you feel initially is due to the mild pressure on your teeth as they move into the proper position. For the best and fastest results, Invisalign candidates must be willing to wear the aligners as much as possible, even approaching 24 hours a day.
While certain conditions may make you ineligible for Invisalign, such as having implants or a bridge, as artificial teeth don’t move as readily as your natural teeth. You’ll find success with the Invisalign process for teeth that have:
Your first appointment starts with a teeth cleaning and thorough examination. Prior to starting your teeth straightening process, you may need to undergo other basic dental care. Common conditions that may need to be addressed first include:
Because your Invisalign treatment at Stamford Dental Arts begins with the latest 3D imaging scanners, you don’t need messy molds made of your teeth. Your aligner trays are custom-made by your Stamford dentist based on the accuracy of the scans. Once you’re comfortable with the fit of your first set of clear aligners, you receive a series of trays, which you swap out every one to three weeks. You need to visit your nearby Stamford dental office once every six to eight weeks to check your progress and pick up the next set of trays.
Maintenance of Invisalign aligners requires nothing more than water and occasional gentle brushing. Since you take the clear aligners out of your mouth to eat, you have to brush and floss your teeth, as well as clean the aligners, before you put them back into your mouth. This step is important because it prevents food particles from causing tooth decay and keeps your clear aligners from getting stained.
