What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable teeth aligners to straighten teeth. It’s a more convenient alternative to the traditional dental braces made of metal. Please visit this website
Why choose Invisalign®?
There are several benefits to choosing Invisalign® instead of traditional metal braces.
Invisible – so no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. Now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
Removable – so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment and brushing and flossing isn’t a problem.
Comfortable – because it has no metal or wires to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
While Invisalign® orthodontics are a premium treatment versus traditional braces, our patients have raved that the investment was well worth it, since it’s very convenient and comfortable to use.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
First, we do a digital 3D laser scan of your entire mouth using the Itero scanner – it is a precise measurement tool that creates aligners that will definitively fit better. The doctor then creates the sequence of movement and sends to it Invisalign to manufacture the aligners exactly to your specifications. After the aligners arrive you wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to the final position we prescribe.
You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of Invisalign® aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
We are a Preferred Premier Provider of Invisalign invisible braces, one of very few non-orthodontists to reach this level of experience. We use Invisalign to optimize each patient’s bite prior to cosmetic dentistry, as well as to straighten crooked or crowded teeth.
