What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, virtually invisible plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Unlike traditional braces, which rely on metal wires and brackets, the advanced clear aligner system uses smooth, clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually undetectable to others.

How Invisalign Clear Aligners Work

Invisalign trays apply gentle, continuous pressure to your teeth, which produces tooth movement. This constant pressure guides your teeth into their proper alignment. You'll receive a new set of aligners every two weeks, each designed to make predictable tooth movements and move your teeth closer to their final position. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their desired alignment, resulting in a beautifully straight and healthy new smile.

The Importance of Straight Teeth

Having straight teeth isn’t just about looking good and feeling confident — it’s also important for your oral health. Benefits of straight teeth include:

  • Nicer Appearance: Straighter teeth are often considered more attractive and can boost self-confidence, while crooked or crowded teeth can detract from one’s smile.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss properly, allowing you to maintain better oral health.
  • Improved Speech: Aligned teeth make it easier to speak clearly and pronounce words.
  • Eating With Ease: Having properly aligned teeth makes chewing and biting easier. Crooked teeth may interfere with chewing or cause accidental biting of the tongue/cheeks.
  • Avoiding Problems: Crooked teeth are more prone to excessive wear, chipping, and cracking and they also increase the chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Straight teeth distribute force evenly.
  • Increase in Confidence: A nice smile projects confidence. Straight teeth are seen as attractive and healthy.
  • Reduced Amount of Headaches: Misaligned jaws and crooked teeth can cause headaches or migraines in some people. Correcting bite issues may relieve these pains.

Conditions Invisalign Clear Aligners Treat

Invisalign aligners are an effective treatment for a wide range of orthodontic and dental issues, including:

Crowded Teeth - When teeth are too close together

Gaps Between Teeth - when teeth have wide spaces between them

Overbite - Your upper teeth bite over the lower teeth

Underbite - Your lower teeth are protruding past the upper teeth

Crossbite - Some of your top teeth go under the bottom teeth

Open bite - Teeth aren’t aligned properly when jaws close 

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners

  • Practically Invisible: Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are nearly undetectable, allowing you to straighten your teeth without the noticeable look of traditional metal braces. This can be a major benefit for adults and teens self-conscious about their smiles during treatment.
  • Removable Aligners: Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. This allows you to take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing, making oral hygiene maintenance much easier and reducing the risk of cavities or gum problems.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: With traditional braces, you may need to avoid certain foods that can damage brackets or wires. Invisalign allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods without worry.
  • Smooth Plastic Design: The plastic material of Invisalign aligners is more comfortable against your cheeks, gums, and tongue compared to the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, reducing irritation and potential mouth sores.
  • Fewer Dental Appointments: Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer adjustments and check-ups than traditional braces. This translates to less time spent in the dentist's chair.
  • Enhanced Oral Hygiene: Because the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss your teeth thoroughly without the brackets and wires getting in the way. This can significantly improve your oral hygiene and reduce the risk of gum disease and cavities.
  • Potential for Faster Treatment: In some cases, Invisalign treatment may be completed in half the time of traditional braces.
  • Boosted Self-Confidence: A straighter smile can improve your self-confidence and overall well-being. Invisalign's discrete nature allows you to feel confident about your smile throughout treatment.

Who Qualifies for Invisalign Treatment? 

The following patients are often good candidates for Invisalign treatment:

  • Teenagers and adults with fully erupted permanent teeth
  • Individuals with mild to moderate case complexity
  • Patients with overbite, underbite, or crossbite problems
  • Those who have completed previous orthodontic treatment but experienced relapse
  • Individuals committed to wearing the aligners as prescribed (20-22 hours per day)
  • Patients with good oral hygiene habits and a willingness to maintain them during treatment
  • Adults seeking a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces

The Invisalign Clear Aligner Process


Before getting approved for a new set of Invisalign clear braces, you’ll have an initial consultation at Solid Bite with an Invisalign-trained doctor. During your initial consultation at our Melbourne, FL, dental office, your experienced Invisalign dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your desired outcomes. They will determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you and provide a comprehensive treatment plan.


Once you've decided to proceed with Invisalign treatment, our team will take precise impressions, X-rays, and 3D scans of your teeth. These records will be used to create a customized treatment plan and design your series of clear aligners.


Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, our orthodontists will map out the precise movements required to shift your teeth into their desired positions. This detailed plan will guide the creation of your custom-made aligners.


After your aligners have been fabricated, you'll return to Solid Bite for your initial fitting. Our team will ensure that your first set of aligners fits correctly and provide you with instructions on how to wear and care for them.


You'll wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series, your teeth gradually shift into their desired alignment. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings with your Melbourne orthodontist will ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Invisalign Clear Aligner Care

Properly caring for your aligners is vital to their continued effectiveness, as well as the effectiveness and safety of your treatment. Our Melbourne dentists recommend the following tips to keep your Invisalign aligner trays working their best:

  1. Brush your teeth and aligners to prevent staining and maintain good oral hygiene.
  2. Remove your aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water to avoid discoloration or damage.
  3. Clean your aligners daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap or an Invisalign cleaning solution.
  4. Rinse your aligners whenever you remove them to prevent dried saliva or debris from accumulating.
  5. Store your aligners in their protective case when not in use to prevent loss or damage.
  6. Avoid exposing your aligners to excessive heat, as this can cause them to warp or become misshapen.
  7. Replace your aligners as directed by your orthodontist to ensure proper tooth movement and treatment progression.

Cost of Invisalign Treatment
