Virtually invisible aligners
Invisalign® is a remarkable system of virtually invisible aligners that straighten teeth comfortably without metal bands, brackets or wires. The pieces are custom-made to fit your teeth and are easily removable so you can eat, drink, brush, floss, and remove the aligners for special occasions if you need to. Best of all, no one will know you’re wearing Invisalign aligners unless you tell them.
Our Invisalign® treatment plans
Throughout our years of helping patients with our Invisalign® treatments, we have streamlined our process to help people quickly adjust their smiles. We are with you every step of the way to make sure you have a seamless experience.
At your initial consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign® treatment is right for you. We will quickly scan your teeth with our iTero® Element scanner to capture an accurate 3D image. Then we will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
After scanning your teeth, we will upload the images to the Invisalign® website to plan your treatment. Every two weeks, we will update your aligners to help move your teeth into position. We will check your progress during your in-office visit every six weeks.
After completing your Invisalign® treatment
You will receive a retainer to wear at night. Regularly wearing your retainer will help your teeth maintain their new positions and prevent them from moving back into their original placements. You will not have to wear a retainer forever after completing your Invisalign® treatment, but the length of time we recommend will vary from patient to patient.
Properly wearing your aligners
While invisible braces are removable, they must be worn for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results. You should remove clear aligners during meals and anytime you eat or drink anything other than cold water.
If worn properly, you’ll see improvements in your teeth within the first three months of wearing clear aligners. Most treatments last between 12 and 18 months. Once you’ve finished your Invisalign treatment, you’ll have post-treatment care to ensure your teeth remain in their desired position, which may require you or your child to wear a retainer for a few months.
Advantages of Invisalign
Clear teeth aligners offer benefits such as less time at the dentist, easy cleaning and convenience. Aligners can help correct various issues, including crowded teeth, gap teeth, crossbites, overbites, open bites, misaligned teeth and underbites. Using orthodontics can also help decrease the rate of gum disease and cavities by combating your bite and crowding issues.
Other advantages to wearing Invisalign’s invisible braces include:
- Looking better.
- More comfort.
- No food adjustments.
- Fewer office visits.
- Easier to clean.
- Surpass other aligners in quality.
- Safe for children, adolescents and adults.
