Option for Correcting Crooked Smiles
We are very happy to offer Invisalign™ clear aligners, an amazing solution that allows you to have straight
teeth in as little as 9 - 15 months! These virtually invisible aligners can correct overcrowding, widely spaced
teeth, overbite, underbite, or even crossbite.
Invisalign makes use of advanced 3-D computer technology to build out your entire treatment plan from the current
position through your final smile. From this outline, clear thermoplastic aligners are constructed. These are not
much different than teeth-whitening trays and are custom made to fit your own teeth. When wearing the first set of
aligners, they use light force to move your teeth gently into the desired position. About two weeks later, you switch
to the next set of aligners and progress all the way through treatment for approximately a year. You will only need
to come to our office to evaluate the treatment every month or two. Total treatment time varies and is based on your
personal needs and goals.
Invisalign Gives You Confidence
There are several advantages to the Invisalign system. Probably the best reason is that no one will know you’re
straightening your teeth because the clear aligners are nearly invisible! People would have to practically be told
the aligners are in place, or look very closely, to be able to see them. This will give you much more confidence in
your smile while you are going through the treatment process.
Comfort is another wonderful benefit of Invisalign. These aligners are all one piece, without metal brackets or poking
wires, so you spend less time at the dentist. The lack of braces, wires, or headgear prevents mouth irritation.
Then there’s convenience. Even though you wear the aligners all day and when sleeping, they are easy to remove when
eating or brushing. You can eat and drink anything you like while in treatment, without food restrictions. And it’s
just as easy to keep your teeth clean and free of plaque as it was before treatment, because there are no metal braces
to interfere with brushing and flossing.
