What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is a revolutionary new treatment that forgoes the metal bracket and wires braces of old in favor of clear acrylic aligners that gently guide the patient’s teeth into place. Patients wear an average of 20 to 30 sets of aligners, over a period of 12-18 months to achieve their desired results, all without painful wire tightening appointments or food restrictions. We proudly offers this incredible orthodontic treatment for our patients who long for a straight, beautiful smile.
Who Can Use Invisalign?
The advent of Invisalign® means that orthodontic treatment no longer benefits only teenagers. We treat many adults with Invisalign orthodontics, including many who wore traditional metal braces as teens. Invisalign aligners can repair many dental problems, such as overbites, underbites, and crooked or rotated teeth.
The aligners work well for patients with wide spaces between their teeth, helping even when other teeth have shifted and moved into those spaces. Adults suffering from malocclusion, which occurs when the upper and lower teeth don’t fit well together, often find that Invisalign aligners work wonders for their smiles, preventing the speech problems, teeth grinding (bruxism), TMJ disorder, and frequent biting of the cheeks and tongue the malady often causes.
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
The Invisalign process starts with a consultation. The doctor will discuss the Invisalign treatment with you, taking time to answer any questions you may have. When you both agree that Invisalign offers the best solution for you, the doctor will schedule a second appointment.
At your second appointment, the excitement will begin. We will start by taking digital images of your mouth and feeding them into the Invisalign software. The software will process the images and create a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The plan will outline everything from the number of aligners you will need to wear to the length of your treatment. We will forward your treatment plan to an Invisalign lab, where technicians will use it to create your aligners.
Invisalign retainers are removable which allows you to brush and floss normally, helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
With our Invisalign treatment, you can still eat what you want. Removable Invisalign retainers make you food decisions worry free.
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are overcrowded, crooked, or spaced too far apart. This means that Invisalign is going to promote the healthier, straighter smile you deserve!
