Invisalign

Invisible. And comfortable

Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

For some of us, braces are inevitable. This biggest hang up for many, however, is the appearance of  the braces, especially as an adult. Invisalign presents a remarkable solution for this. They are a clear and nearly invisible alternative to braces, and fully removable so that you can eat, floss and brush as per usual.  

Why Would You Need Invisalign?

Typically a diagnosis made by orthodontists, braces are required to correct  jaw, face, and bite irregularities – also known as malocclusions. Over the past few decades, the world of dentistry has changed drastically.  Due to an awareness of proper dental hygiene, people are experiencing less cavities and missing teeth. Now more than ever, people are seeking out help from orthodontists for more than the necessary treatments.  Straight teeth and correct bites have also become a cosmetic necessity.

A malocclusion can occur for a number of reasons, and has the potential to affect not only the teeth, but the appearance of the face itself.  Malocclusions are typically inherited, but can also be acquired due to bad habits during the developmental stage (like thumb sucking).

How Does Invisalign Work?

A series of clear removable aligners are custom prepared for your mouth using advanced computer imaging techniques.  The aligners graduate to slowly reshape the teeth and their alignment within your mouth. Every two weeks or so, you change them to another set – graduating eventually to the final position that your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.  Easy to wear, comfortable and difficult to notice, they are a clear alternative to achieving what braces have traditionally accomplished.

How long does it take?

Naturally, Invisalign treatment will vary on a case by case basis. Usually it takes about a year of proper wear, from start to finish, to arrive at the desired results.  Every month or two you will visit your dentist or orthodontist to monitor your progress and obtain additional aligners to continue the treatment. The number of aligners used by the end of the process will vary from 18 to 30 depending on the case.

What do they look like?

When they are on your teeth, Invisalign’s are virtually invisible.   They won’t draw attention, and your teeth will continue to look fairly natural.  They are comfortable and removable, so you will be able to eat and brush as per usual before putting them back in.

Imagine straightening your teeth without braces! Invisalign is a state-of-the-art approach to straightening your teeth using computer imaging to create a series of clear appliances to correct the alignment of your teeth. (www.invisalign.com)

A clear alternative

By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks, and your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

Less treatment time

A typical Invisalign case takes about a year from start to finish. You’ll see your doctor every month or two to see how you’re progressing. Every few visits, you’ll be given additional aligners to continue your treatment. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time and the number of aligners will vary from case to case.
