After talking with you and examining your – or your child’s mouth – we may suggest you consider Invisalign for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your mouth.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a way to straighten crooked teeth without the traditional metal bars and brackets of braces. This modern, revolutionary approach uses custom-made aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. This comfortable, clear, and discreet method moves your teeth over time without the pain of traditional braces. Every two weeks, you replace your aligner trays with new ones until your treatment is complete and you’re left with a beautiful, confident smile.
Do you have to wear Invisalign aligners all the time?
Nearly invisible, the Invisalign aligners gradually and gently reposition your teeth into a straighter, more beautiful smile and work best when used consistently. While you’ll visit us periodically for check-ups, you can remove the aligners to brush, floss, and eat.
How do I get Invisalign?
After your dentists find that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you will have x-rays and impressions of your teeth made. From these x-rays and impressions, a digital 3-D image is made allowing your dentist the ability to map out a treatment plan for the movement of your teeth. From these 3-D images, your custom-made aligner trays are made specifically for you. You wear them throughout the day and night, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth. Over time, the aligner trays gradually move your teeth into position.’
How long does Invisalign treatment last?
Approximately every two weeks your aligner trays are replaced, advancing you to the next stage of treatment. Every six to eight weeks you will have checkups with your dentist to monitor the results. The length of treatment varies but usually lasts up to a year.
