Our practice is a certified provider of Invisalign
Invisalign is a treatment used to straighten your teeth without braces. A free consultation with our doctor can help determine whether or not Invisalign treatment is something that could work for you.
What is Invisalign?
A type of treatment that uses practically invisible aligners to straighten or realign your teeth. The aligners are comfortable and removable. Invisalign treatment utilizes 3D computer imaging technology to fit specifically to you.
Why would I want Invisalign?
The biggest benefit to most people is that the aligners are virtually invisible. Some people feel uncomfortable smiling with braces, Invisalign makes it so you can still smile with confidence! The aligners are also removable meaning no foods are off-limits during your treatment. Invisalign is also very comfortable in comparison to traditional braces since they are easier to install and you don’t have to deal with metal or wires.
How does Invisalign work?
During treatment, you will wear different sets of aligners as your teeth formation gradually changes. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks. The only time you are meant to remove them is when you are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing. As you move through the sets of aligners every two weeks your teeth will begin to move, little by little, until they have reached their final positions. A visit to the orthodontist will be required every six weeks to make sure treatment is working and no adjustments are needed. Treatment time is different for everyone but usually ranges from 9-15 months or 18-30 sets of aligners.
