If you’re looking to straighten your smile without the need of metal wires or frames, we have the solution for you: Invisalign invisible Braces. Invisalign offers a completely new way to straighten your teeth without others knowing you’re receiving orthodontic work.
This revolutionary tooth-straightening system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually aligns your teeth into an optimal position to create the perfect smile. The aligners are clear so flawlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. You can feel confident speaking, eating, and smiling without feeling self-conscious about your braces.
After you make an appointment and visit our office, we will evaluate your mouth to determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign. If you are, we will take impressions of your bite, along with detailed information, and send these to a dental lab to create your custom-made aligners.
Because your bite impressions are used to create your aligners, they are 100% customized to your mouth’s unique specifications. This ensures the aligners are a perfect fit and deliver the best results.
Within a few weeks, you should receive your custom-made aligners. Depending on your case, there may be as few 12 or as many as 48 aligners. All you have to do is to come to our office to pick them up; however, follow-up visits every 6 weeks will be required to ensure that the treatment is going according to as planned. We will give you additional pairs of aligners to reduce the number of visits.
Each set of aligners has to be worn for 2 weeks before progressing to the next pair. They will have to be worn all the time and only removed prior to eating, brushing, or flossing. This allows you to enjoy your daily activities without braces getting in the way. Depending on your case, your overall treatment can last from 9 months to over a year.
