For most individuals looking to undergo orthodontic treatment, they have two main concerns: how will they look during treatment and how much will undergoing treatment impact their lifestyle. These concerns are valid when using traditional treatment options, such as metal braces. However, you do not need to have these concerns when undergoing treatment with Invisalign.
Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth and enjoy the benefits of a beautiful and healthy smile without needing to advertise that you are in treatment or change the way you live. It is a clear, removable, comfortable form of treatment that actually works faster than most other forms of treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a non-braces system that can correct minor to moderate problems with tooth alignment. It uses clear, medical-grade plastic aligners to place force on the teeth, guiding them into place. These aligners are made based on 3-D mapping of your dental anatomy, which is used to generate your treatment plan. Each aligner moves your teeth a little more until they are in the final, ideal position.
Why Should I Consider Invisalign Treatment?
The number one reason patients want Invisalign treatment is that it is invisible, but that is far from being the only benefit to being a Portland Invisalign patient.
Without any metal brackets or wires to tighten, you see the doctor less often; this means less time off from school and work and less time commuting from place to place. Even though it isn’t a lot of time, it certainly feels like it when you are in treatment. The aligners are removable, which means that you make the adjustments by switching out a lot of time, it certainly feels like it when you are in treatment.

This removability is also great when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. With other forms of treatment, all these things change. With Invisalign, you just take the aligners out and go about life as you always have.
