What are Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces, is a discreet orthodontic treatment that will give you the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom made, removable aligners that are designed to fit your teeth. The invisible aligners are changed every two weeks, so that your teeth move little by little, gradually straightening your teeth. Invisalign allows you to continue to look your best and won’t interfere with your professional or social life. This comfortable, convenient treatment allows you to easily eat, brush and floss normally, as well as remove your aligners for special events.
How often do I visit the office?
You’ll visit our office once every two to six weeks to make sure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
How long is Invisalign treatment?
Treatment time averages 5-12 months, using a total of 10 to 24 clear aligners.
How does Invisalign treatment begin?
Starting Invisalign involves a few simple steps. First our experienced dentists will take impressions of your teeth to make a 3D computer image. We then straighten your 3D teeth using advanced computer imaging technology, so that you will see the progression of your treatment and the amazing results before you even begin treatment!
After a few weeks you’ll return to receive your first set of aligners. You’ll wear them for two weeks each, removing them for meals only. Then you’ll replace the aligners with a new set and continue the process until your teeth are in the desired position. Say hello to your new, beautiful smile!
