How Invisalign® works
Invisalign®, a clear aligner system, effectively aligns teeth and enhances oral health using removable aligners. Extensive research shows its effectiveness is comparable to traditional metal braces for treating common orthodontic issues.
During your consultation, we utilize x-rays and digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your teeth. With this information, we custom design aligners that fit securely over your teeth. Made from a comfortable material, these aligners are switched every 1-2 weeks to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.
When you visit Buttenbaum Orthodontics, our team of experts will make sure your treatment is progressing the way he hope to see. It's critical that you change your aligners at the right time and wear them as instructed. It's the very most important thing you can do to insure that your treatment with Invisalign® clear aligners is successful. Not changing your aligners the way that you're supposed to or missing your appointments with us can quickly negate progress that has been made, resulting in longer treatment times for you.
Each individual is unique, and their response to treatment with clear aligners like Invisalign® can vary. While the average treatment duration is typically between 6 and 18 months, it's important to recognize that every smile is different. Clear aligners work in a unique and minimally invasive manner compared to traditional braces. As a result, it can be challenging to predict the exact timeframe for achieving desired results. Your orthodontist will provide a personalized estimate based on your specific case.
The estimated treatment time depends on your adherence to our guidelines. Wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours daily is crucial. Consistency is key, as deviating from the routine can prolong your treatment. Personal responsibility plays a significant role in the success of this orthodontic method.

Benefits of Invisalign®
They're practically invisible.
The ability to straighten your teeth without people ever knowing is what brings many people to consider Invisalign® as their preferred orthodontic treatment method.
You can eat or drink whatever you want.
With braces, you're advised to avoid certain chewy, sticky, or hard foods. That means saying goodbye to many candies, popcorn and more. Because your clear aligners are removable, you can continue to enjoy the treats that you love.
You can easily brush or floss.
Maintaining a strong oral hygiene method is an important part of any orthodontic treatment method. Removing your aligners enables you to have easy access to your teeth, so you can brush or floss as you normally would.
There are no pesky wires.
One of the drawbacks of braces is the wires that can poke or irritate your mouth. Those wires also have to be adjusted during periodic visits throughout treatment. With Invisalign, there are still occasional visits to check on your progress, but there are no adjustments.
