What are Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the use of metal braces. Invisalign® is a series of custom-made clear braces that cover your teeth and gently pull them into the proper position over time. Because they are clear and can be taken on and off, they are less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Most people want to improve their smile but think that traditional, metal braces are the only option. With Invisalign clear braces there are no metal brackets or wire to detract from your smile while undergoing treatment.
Who does Invisalign® work best for?
Both teenagers and adults can wear Invisalign®. These clear braces are used to close gaps between teeth, as well as treating overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth. After an examination and x-rays of your teeth, we can discuss if Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you.
What’s involved in Invisalign®?
When we receive your first set of aligners, you come to our office to check for fit and make any necessary adjustments. You will wear your aligners all day, every day, except when you eat, floss, and brush your teeth. Because Invisalign® braces are removable, you will be able to briefly remove them any time you need to throughout the day.
Every six weeks, you will have an appointment in our office to check your aligners and the progress of your treatment. These checkups also help us determine if any adjustments need to be made to the aligners or to your treatment plan.
