A complete transformation, to give you the smile you’ve always wanted and deserved with Invisalign.
The Invisalign system provides an inconspicuous alternative to conventional braces. A series of plastic aligners are used to gradually move teeth to their desired position, similar to wire braces. Unlike wire braces, however, these aligners are thin, unobtrusive, and transparent; they are nearly invisible when worn. The aligners can also be removed for up to 4 hours a day, giving the wearer significantly more freedom than traditional braces. Invisalign can correct an array of problems including crooked, crowded or gapped teeth, underbite and overbite, and more.
The Invisalign treatment process is very straightforward. After a thorough consultation to determine your suitability for Invisalign, a custom treatment plan will be created for you. Your dentist will take pictures, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth to create a perfect 3D model of your teeth. Specialized computer software will be used to map out a series of incremental stages from your current teeth to your beautiful new smile. A number of progressive aligners will be manufactured–about one aligner for every two weeks of treatment. For optimal results, you’ll need to wear the aligners for 20 – 22 hours per day. You’ll be able to remove the aligners whenever necessary to allow you to eat and clean your teeth just as you did before.
Treatment length varies depending on the amount of movement required, but the average is just over one year. Once treatment is complete, your dentist will advise you on aftercare. A retainer may be required to keep your new smile in perfect shape.
