How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign in Escondido is an alternative teeth-straightening method that involves the use of clear plastic trays in place of

You will be given a set of aligners by your Brackets Wires and Smiles dentist after your mouth has been scanned and a 3D imaging of your teeth developed.
Over time, you will be supplied with more Invisalign aligners of slightly varied shape after intervals of approximately two weeks.
You will be wearing the aligners on your teeth for 20-22 hours a day every day until your desired results are achieved. The idea is to have your teeth try to imitate the shape of the aligner and effectively align in a more orderly manner.
Is Invisalign better than braces?
While both treatments are designed to perform the same function – improve your appearance and oral health – they look different and go about this function differently.
Braces are quite conspicuous and may take up to two years to produce any results.
Invisalign aligners, on the hand, are made of clear, virtually invisible plastic that doesn’t need to be worn on a full-time basis to work.
At Brackets Wires and Smiles, we recommend this treatment for people who care about the aesthetic aspect of aligners as much as they do functionality.
How will Invisalign aligners impact my life?
Alcohol drinkers are advised against drinking with their aligners on.
This is because the sugar in alcohol can be trapped in the space between teeth and the aligners putting you at risk of dental decay. Smoking is discouraged too because too much of it can decolorize the aligners.
