Invisalign®
Explained

Invisalign is a removable, virtually invisible orthodontic treatment that involves wearing a series of clear aligners that slowly shift your teeth into position. As the world’s most advanced clear aligner treatment system, Invisalign uses proprietary materials and research-driven systems to straighten teeth with invisible aligners.

While most people invest in teeth straightening treatment for the uniform appearance they create, they can also benefit one’s oral health. However, investing in various types of options will produce different results. As an Invisalign® dentist, we can provide patients with a professional, efficient and customizable teeth straightening treatment.

If you are interested in getting straighter teeth in a discreet and convenient manner, Invisalign® may be the perfect option for you. Contact us today to schedule your Invisalign® consultation

How Does
Invisalign Work?

Treatment with Invisalign starts with making a model of your teeth which allows us to create a detailed treatment plan. Impressions of your teeth are then sent to an Invisalign laboratory where a series of custom aligners are created. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, 22 hours per day.

Do I Need Invisalign?

  • Are you a candidate for Invisalign? Invisalign can help patients living with a variety of common orthodontic issues, including:

    • Crowded teeth
    • Overbite
    • Underbite
    • Crossbite
    • Gap teeth
    • Open bite

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

The Invisalign treatment system offers patients many benefits, including:

  • Invisalign is removable, allowing you to take them out during meals and keep eating all your favorite foods.
  • Just remove your aligners to stay active in all the sports and physical activities you love.
  • You can keep brushing and flossing normally, with no brackets or wires to get in the way.
  • Your aligners are virtually invisible, making them the most discreet treatment option available.

HOW DOES THE INVISALIGN PROCESS WORK?

1. CONSULTATION

First, you’ll meet with your dentist for an Invisalign consultation. Your doctor will examine your teeth, discuss your goals, and determine if Invisalign is right for you. The team will take impressions or digital scans of your mouth and give you a sneak peek of your new smile.

2. ALIGNER PICK-UP

Once your first set of aligners arrives at our office, you’ll come in to pick them up and try them on. Your doctor will instruct you on how to wear your aligners to get the best results. Typically, you’ll wear them for at least 20 hours a day and switch out the aligners for the next set every two weeks.

3. CHECK-INS

You’ll come back to our office every six weeks to pick up your newest sets of aligners and for quick check-ins to make sure your teeth are tracking properly. As long as you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, your teeth will gradually shift to the corrected position.

4. MAINTAINING YOUR SMILE

After treatment is complete, you’ll maintain your beautiful new smile with a set of retainers. Your clear, plastic retainers will look similar to your Invisalign aligners, but the plastic is stronger to help keep your teeth straight for years to come.

How will Invisalign® impact your life?

 Since the aligners are clear, it will not impact your appearance. Additionally, since they only need to be worn for 22 hours a day, they will not interfere with eating. This is a huge advantage because you can eat your favorite plate of ribs, go out for a romantic date, eat a caramel apple without worrying about something becoming stuck in your teeth or a wire being pulled out of place. This time also allows you to take the aligner out when having an important conversation or making a presentation at work. Overall, this is a convenient way to straighten your teeth and provides the maximum level of flexibility.
