Invisalign Clear Aligners
What is Invisalign® Treatment?
Invisalign clear aligners are created from a digital scan of the patient’s teeth. Approximately every two weeks you will change out the aligners allowing for your teeth to subtly shift into place without the need for braces. Invisalign custom trays can easily be removed, allowing you to eat and drink whatever you please; along with being able to brush and floss without working around brackets.
How does the Invisalign system work?
Your custom trays will be created using a BPA-free plastic. Each set of trays will gently shift your teeth a little bit at a time. For the best results, we encourage our patients to wear their aligner trays for 20-22 hours each day.
What happens during appointments?
During your first appointment, our highly trained staffed will take photos, x-rays, and conduct a thorough dental exam. We will use this information to create a 3D model of your teeth and create your custom treatment plan. This treatment plan will show how your teeth will adjust over time, allowing you to see the projected result before beginning treatment. This plan will also go over how often we will see you in our office, how often you need to switch aligner trays, and how long your treatment will last. At your next appointment, we will give you the custom-made aligner trays and go over the proper way to care for them. Most patients only need to see us every other month to monitor your teeth and ensure they are tracking; and most treatments last nine to twenty-four months.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign treatment?
Both adults and teens are candidates for Invisalign treatment, and our teen aligners have a blue compliance indicator, so parents are assured they are being worn for the recommended hours. You will never feel self-conscious about your smile again while straightening your teeth. Even the most complicated cases can now be done with Invisalign clear aligners. Our Doctors have undergone additional training to be able to handle difficult cases to provide you options that were not possible before. We are committed to achieving the results you are seeking that fits your lifestyle.
