Getting a beautiful smile without braces is now possible with Invisalign®. Invisalign® is an excellent treatment option for teeth that are crowded, widely spaced, or misaligned. Since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, comfortable, and virtually invisible, Invisalign® is a popular choice among many adult patients and teenagers who do not want conspicuous metal braces. The Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, virtually invisible plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into alignment.
In your first visit the doctor will help decide whether Invisalign® is an appropriate treatment for you. If it is, he will take photographs and molds of your teeth, which he will send to the Invisalign® laboratory. Using the molds and photos, highly trained laboratory technicians will map out your treatment plan with advanced computer technology, fabricating each set of aligners to move your teeth one step closer to their final position. When your Invisalign® aligners are ready, you will pick up the first set from our office and receive detailed instructions on how to wear your aligners. Each new set of aligners is delivered every two weeks, and progress is monitored carefully by the doctor. Patients who wear their Invisalign® aligners all the time and remove them only to eat, brush, and floss sometimes complete treatment in as little as 12 months.
