Have you always wanted straight teeth? Did you have braces as a teenager, but your teeth have drifted out of alignment over the years?
You can have the straight smile you’ve wanted without the hassle or embarrassment of traditional wire braces and brackets with Invisalign. This progressive procedure is available at our practice.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Instead of metal brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-fitting, removable devices called aligners.
To create the custom aligners, we use 3-D computer technology. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the teeth gradually shift, until they move into the final alignment as prescribed. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn is between 18 and 30, but varies by case.
Why Choose Invisalign?
They’re invisible! No one can tell that you’re straightening your teeth! These aligners are also removable so you can eat and drink what you want. Brushing and flossing are no problem. With no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment, Invisalign is much more comfortable than braces.
What Happens After Treatment?
Every patient is different and outcomes vary. After treatment, we will go over your individual expectations. Some patients may need a positioner or conventional retainer and others may need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes to keep their new, straight smiles in place.
