Benefits of Invisalign During Covid-19 Pandemic
Posted on 09/01/2020

At Discover Orthodontics, Dr. Bart Iwasiuk and his team are proud to be a certified Elite provider of Invisalign clear aligners, an alternative to braces that allow you to achieve a straight smile without clunky metal brackets and wires. As we navigate through the new normal and look to the future, the benefits of Invisalign now go far beyond just achieving a beautiful smile.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Treatment vs. Traditional Braces?

There are several techniques available to correct teeth alignment problems. The two best-known options are traditional braces and Invisalign; both orthodontic treatments shift teeth into a proper, more aligned position by applying pressure on the patient’s teeth over long periods of time. However, with Invisalign the benefits far exceed traditional braces. Invisalign is the best treatment option when you have adapted to a more remote and socially distant lifestyle.

Since our team at Discover Orthodontics uses state-of-the-art technology and advanced digital imaging, we are able to provide:

  • Curbside pickup of aligners so there is no disruption of treatment
  • Remote appointments taken from the comfort of your home

Invisalign allows you to have minimal impact on the progress of achieving a beautiful smile.

What If I Have An Invisalign Emergency During the Pandemic?

Our team at Discover Orthodontics is able to remotely monitor any issues you may experience. In most cases, our patients in Invisalign treatment did not experience any Invisalign aligner specific emergencies as compared to more traditional appliances. Things like worn aligners can easily be replaced and serve as temporary retainers until our team is able to return to the office.

Is Invisalign Painful?

No, wearing Invisalign involves minimal pain. Invisalign is customized to fit the uniqueness of your teeth. Invisalign aligners are developed from digital photos and intraoral scans. These visuals are sent to Invisalign, where they create customized aligner trays that correspond to the stages of your tooth movement. Each set of aligners are meant to move your teeth subtly and without excruciating pain. Depending on your unique situation, you will wear a set of aligners for approximately 7-14 days, before switching to the next set in the series. With this, week by week, your teeth are being straightened until you reach your desired smile goal.

Are Invisalign Braces Removable?

Yes! Invisalign is a set of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth over time just like braces, but without using wires or brackets that would need to be professionally removed by our team at Discover Orthodontics. Since Invisalign aligners are so easy to put in and remove, patients often report that they are very comfortable to wear.
