When you think about having straighter teeth, what form of orthodontic care do you consider – braces or Invisalign? No matter which one you end up going with, the key is to know all of your options in order to make an informed decision. Invisalign is safe and effective to use and is a perfect option for teens.




So you’ve heard about Invisalign, but how exactly does it work? Not everyone knows the many benefits of using Invisalign to achieve the smile they’ve always dreamt about. Invisalign is a safe and effective way to move teeth without having the wires and brackets that braces do.


Here’s how Invisalign works


At Huerter Orthodontics, you receive a series of custom-made aligners for your teeth. The aligners are clear and less noticeable than braces. In fact, most people cannot even tell that they are on your teeth. Invisalign is great for someone looking for a less cumbersome and less obvious way to straighten their smile. With Invisalign, you do not need to visit the office as frequently. It is a great solution for a busy teen.

Each custom aligner plays an important role in moving your teeth. It is almost like a stepping stone to straighter teeth. As the aligners are replaced; roughly every two weeks, the teeth begin to gradually move.

The movement of your teeth and the timing of that movement is determined by your orthodontist. This process is a well-thought-out plan to achieve desired results.

People may not be able to see the aligners, but the progress becomes notable after just a few months!
