Are you looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces to straighten your smile? The Invisalign system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth comfortably and conveniently. Because the aligners are basically undetectable when worn, they’ll be your little secret. No one has to know you are straightening your smile!
Each set of aligners is custom made specifically for your course of treatment, to help gradually move your teeth into the correct position. The aligners are individually created by a combination of the dentist’s treatment plan and special state-of-the-art computer technology. Invisalign consists of a series of aligners that progressively shift your teeth over the course of the treatment, which generally takes about 9 to 15 months. You change aligners every two weeks, only removing them to eat, brush, and floss.
Throughout treatment, you can expect to wear an average of 18 to 30 different aligners, and your dentist will evaluate your progress every six weeks. Invisalign orthodontics can correct a variety of dental problems, from underbites and overbites, to crowding and gaps.
Whether your teeth are crowded, crooked, spaced incorrectly, or you suffer from an incorrect bite due to the positioning of your teeth, Invisalign helps you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. It’s effortless, comfortable, and discreet. The only thing anyone will notice is your new, confident smile.
