How Does Invisalign Work


When a patient slips the flexible clear plastic aligner over their teeth, the aligner places gentle pressure to these teeth.  The body senses this pressure as an irritation and begins a process to remove the irritation. 

     Our body's process of removing the irritation is what moves the teeth.  It takes our bodies approximately two to three weeks to completely eliminate the aligner pressure.   Traditional braces move teeth the same way except that the wires used for braces are designed to maintain pressure on the teeth over a longer period of time, much longer than a two week period.

    After the teeth have moved and the pressure is completely eliminated it is time to change to a new aligner and start the process all over again!
