How Does Invisalign Work?

Living with crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth isn’t always difficult, but if it’s affecting your confidence or your oral health, you may be considering corrective treatments. One of the most popular treatment options is clear braces, or Invisalign. At Boulder Smiles, we’re proud to offer Invisalign to our patients to help straighten teeth for a healthier, more beautiful smile. Here is the process of how Invisalign works for our patients.

Consultation Appointment

First and foremost, you’ll make an appointment with our team to get started with your Invisalign treatments. In this consultation, we’ll discuss your goals, any health or budget limitations, and set up a treatment plan for your clear braces.

Aligners Created For You

Once your consultation is complete and your care plan has been created and approved, your aligners will be created specifically for you! As your teeth move as a result of treatment, your aligners will be adjusted or recreated so your mouth stays healthy and your smile is making progress toward your goals.

Pressure Moves Your Teeth

You may be wondering how exactly your aligners work to move your teeth. When you put them on, you’ll notice pressure against your teeth, and this pressure is what moves them in the desired directions for healthier, straighter teeth.

Ensure a Healthy, Beautiful Smile!

As you continue through your aligner treatments, you’ll notice that your smile not only looks closer to your goals, but that it’s feeling better, too! With teeth that are straightened and more in line with your jaw, you’re less likely to feel discomfort in your mouth while chewing, smiling, or speaking.
