What Are Invisalign® Clear Braces?
Straight teeth not only offer a confident, gorgeous smile, but they also are typically healthier and easier to care for. Dental challenges (like overcrowding of the teeth or an uneven bite) may also cause further health issues that might possibly impact your ability to eat and speak normally, and they can be costlier to resolve. In order to help patients enjoy the benefits of an attractive, healthy smile, our team is excited to offer Invisalign® Treatment to teens and adults in Saratoga Springs, NY. Invisalign® Treatment is a proven technology designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces. This treatment maneuvers teeth through a sequence of removable, clear teeth aligners, allowing for a less noticeable appearance and a convenient option over metal braces. Explore whether Invisalign® Treatment is a good choice for your oral health needs by booking a private consultation with our dental team at Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry.

Should I Get Invisalign Aligners?
Patients who prefer a more discreet option rather than traditional metal braces can be prime candidates for Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign® Treatment can be well-suited for addressing tooth misalignment (an underbite, open bite, overbite, or crossbite), a narrow arch, crooked or overcrowded teeth, and gapped teeth. Treating such problems may lead to improved comfort, jaw function, and eating and speaking abilities. Clear aligners are easy to remove from the mouth, allowing Saratoga Springs, NY teenagers and adults to consume their favorite snacks with no limitations and floss and brush their teeth without wires and brackets standing in the way. During your visit at Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry, we will take dental radiographs and then perform an evaluation to decide if Invisalign® clear aligners are a good choice for you.
How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?
At Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry, we believe Invisalign® aligners are made to fit your lifestyle, not change it. Because Invisalign® Treatment uses a set of clear removable trays that incrementally guide your teeth into their appropriate position, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. To begin your orthodontic care, a member of our Saratoga Springs, NY team will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, which will be given to a designated lab where your personalized teeth aligners will be created. Once the aligners are forwarded to our dental center, we will ask you to come in to collect your initial pair and review instructions on how to wear them.
LOOK YOUR BEST DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT
The aligner trays must be worn in your mouth for a minimum of 20 – 22 hours every day and taken out only right before brushing your teeth, flossing, eating snacks or meals, or drinking. Every 1 – 2 weeks, you should swap your current pair of Invisalign trays for the next in line. An average Invisalign® Treatment course takes about 11 months. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you and determined by the doctor for your course of treatment.
Of course, you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can! Because Invisalign® aligners are clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you’re straightening your teeth – unless you tell them. And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel confident, whether in front of people or not. You’re going to have a stunning smile. All across the country, people like you now have great smiles and straighter teeth, thanks to Invisalign® clear braces. Why not join them?
