Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets and acts as clear braces. Invisalign trays fit precisely over your teeth and move your teeth gradually to an ideal arch-form, bite alignment, and beautiful smile. Invisalign typically moves your teeth more quickly than traditional braces, and it does so invisibly. Other people will not know you are wearing braces because Invisalign trays are almost invisible.
Invisalign is one of the simplest smile enhancements you can choose. The process starts with a consultation with one of our dentists. At your consultation visit, we will take several digital photographs of your teeth/smile and use our digital scanning system to create fast, precise, 3D digital images of your teeth. We then map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new beautiful smile! Digital scanning produces a much more accurate, seamless fit, which shortens your treatment time and allows us to better predict and manage your new, straight smile!
Retainers are very important, whether you’ve used traditional metal braces or Invisalign. Our orthodontist will provide a recommendation to you based on many factors, including the severity of your initial problem, your age, and whether we are using the retainers to finalize a few tooth positions. After 12 months of continuous retainer wear, we often recommend that you continue to wear your retainers at night 3-5 times a week for life. The reason we recommend this cycle of wear is due to the slow shifting of teeth forward and inward as we get older which can be prevented through continued and consistent wear of retainers. We recommend that you replace your retainer every year to keep your smile looking the same way it looked the day you completed Invisalign. We can create enough retainers in advance so that you never have to worry about losing them, breaking them, or wearing them out, and it also saves money!
Whether you are young or old, misaligned teeth and problems with your bite are not a reason to hide your beautiful smile. Further, Invisalign works to ensure that your overall oral health is in pristine condition. Treating your teeth with the clear, inconspicuous Invisalign aligners is effective in correcting a myriad of dental health issues. It can help you fix an open bite, overbite, underbite, crossbite, teeth that are overcrowded, gapped teeth, and protruding teeth. It truly is the most advanced clear aligner system available.
