What is Invisalign®?
Adolescents and adults often struggle with the need for straighter teeth. Whether you need a small shift or a full mouth makeover, the decision to begin treatment is an important one.
Invisalign® offers several important advantages over traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth. The aligners are made of a clear material. This means no wires, no rubber bands, and no metal. Your aligners are also removable. This means you can brush and floss your teeth regularly, making Invisalign a good choice for those who want to maintain oral hygiene.
How Does it Work?
Your Invisalign® journey begins with a consultation with us. We'll talk with you about your needs and your goals, and help you decide what treatment is right for you.
Once you’ve decided to take the plunge, your dentist will create a 3-D image of your teeth. From this image, a custom treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs. Often, new aligners are provided every 1-2 weeks. This helps the patient make visible progress quickly.
Invisalign® aligners fit snugly over your teeth. Over time, they slowly shift your teeth into your desired position. Wear them at least 20 hours each day, removing them to eat, brush, and floss.
Is Invisalign® Right for Me?
Invisalign® has helped over five million people achieve straight and healthy smiles. Invisalign® might be right for you if you want to straighten or rotate your teeth but would prefer to skip the metal wires associated with traditional braces.
