For patients uncomfortable with traditional braces, Invisalign is the perfect solution.Invisalign straightening technique utilizes removable aligners, which allow patients to straighten their teeth without anyone even knowing the process is occurring. Invisalign lets patients drink, eat, floss, and brush normally. So, they can enjoy a meal and take care of their dental health at the same time, both easily and painlessly.
Invisalign® treats the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Without the unappealing and often uncomfortable metal wires of traditional braces, the mouth stays healthier, too. Invisalign aligning trays can even be removed for important occasions which means plenty of flexibility for the patient. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or something more extreme, Invisalign® can help.
The process corrects correct tooth overcrowding, gaps between teeth, and bite issues such as cross bite, over bite, and under bite. The trays are custom designed and the process involves wearing aligners for two weeks, with patients able to remove them for meals and dental care, and any special occasions. As teeth move into alignment, a new set is created. The total time for treatment ranges from six to fifteen months. Regardless of the length of time necessary for the aligners to be in place, the results are the same – attractive and straight teeth.
The Invisalign process starts with examination, followed by tray design by our lab. Fitting is simple with trays simply positioned firmly across your teeth. It’s that simple with Invisalign, which provides all the benefits of straight teeth without having to wear braces. In fact, an experienced Invisalign®-certified doctor can use Invisalign® for all or part of almost any treatment plan.
