Invisalign

What is Invisalign®?

 

Invisalign ® is a way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® is also referred by many as Invisible Braces, Clear Braces, Adult Braces, Adult Orthodontics.

 

 

Invisalign ® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.

 

 

Invisalign ® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®.

 

 

How Does Invisalign® Work?

 

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

 

 

As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed.

 

 

You'll visit the dental practice about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your Invisalign®orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned.

 

 

Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

 

How Are Invisalign® Aligners Made?

The aligners are made through a combination of  expertise of our dental staff and 3-D computer imaging technology.
