Invisalign is made from smooth, thin plastic and is custom-designed and computer-generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they very discreet, but they are also very comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods as well as brush and floss with ease. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gently guiding them into their proper positions to give you a straight, healthy, beautiful smile.
Our offices use the most advanced technology to map out the trajectory of your teeth over time. With digital imaging we can accurately predict where your teeth are and where they will go. We also do routine checkups to ensure that everything goes according to plan. This is the best way to get hands-on treatment and ensure that you are getting optimal results.
The Invisalign treatment involves a set of clear aligner trays custom fitted for a patient’s mouth. After using high-tech imaging to map the movement of teeth, these trays are designed to be replaced every two months. For the next pair to fit properly, patients must be sure to wear the aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day.
Clear aligners are a great option for patients who do not like the way braces look. This orthodontic option is especially popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for virtually invisible treatments. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our orthodontist will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if clear aligners are the best treatment for you.
Almost anyone is a candidate for clear aligners It’s particularly popular for adult patients, but we also offer a specialized form for adolescent patients called Invisalign Teen. Though clear aligners can’t treat every orthodontic malocclusion, advances in technology mean it can treat a wide variety of conditions. The only patients for whom we don’t generally recommend Invisalign are children getting early orthodontic treatment.
Originally, Invisalign was only available to adults wishing to correct their bite. Nowadays, the brand boasts Invisalign for Teens as well.
