Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment designed to help create a beautiful smile without the need for bulky and uncomfortable metal brackets and wires. Invisalign orthodontics relies on clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into their proper positions. Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they are comfortable and nearly invisible in your mouth.
When you receive Invisalign, our dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth to simulate your treatment and create your orthodontic aligners. A series of clear plastic aligners will then be created. You will switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks, and each set of aligners will work to make changes to the alignment of your teeth, gradually giving you a straight, attractive smile. You will meet with our dentist regularly to ensure that your treatment is on track.
Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic problems as braces, including bad bites, crooked and crowded teeth, and gapped or spaced teeth. Unlike braces, however, your aligners are removable. This allows you to brush and floss with ease and to eat anything that you feel like eating. Please note that you should wear your aligners as often as possible, removing them only to brush, floss and eat. The more you wear your aligners, the faster your treatment will progress.
We recommend that you clean your aligners regularly to prevent them from causing your teeth to appear dirty, stained or gray.
