How Does Invisalign Work

Invisalign is a set of clear, plastic aligners that gradually realign your teeth over the course of treatment. Most Invisalign treatment can last anywhere from 6-12 months. Your treatment time will depend on the condition of your teeth. Each aligner is work for 20-22 hours a day. Patients can remove their aligner to eat, brush, and floss. Patients will need to replace their aligners every two weeks. Dr. Trinkner will work with you to create custom-made aligners that fit securely over your teeth for an effective, comfortable treatment.

Invisalign Treatment in Columbia, SC

Straightening crooked teeth can not only enhance the appearance of your teeth but the health of your teeth as well. Invisalign can be an ideal solution for teen and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign can help correct the appearance of:

  • overcrowded teeth
  • overbite
  • underbite
  • open bite
  • cross bite
  • gapped teeth

Although Invisalign can treat all types of orthodontic concerns, it can solve a majority of common orthodontic issues. It is critical that patients find a solution to straighten crooked teeth to maintain a healthy smile. If left untreated, crooked teeth may lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and TMJ disorder. When the bite is unbalanced, it can cause a plethora of uncomfortable, and sometimes painful symptoms. Dr. Trinkner can work with you to determine what type of treatment best suits your dental needs.
