Do you wish your teeth were straighter? Do you find yourself dreaming of what it would be like to have a perfect smile? With easy access to the most advanced clear aligner in the world, there’s never been a better time to straighten your teeth. Our office is proud to be a certified provider of Invisalign clear aligners, which give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Many people want a perfect smile, but don’t want to go through the hassle, pain, and self-consciousness of traditional metal braces. Invisalign offers a safe and effective alternative with discreet aligners that can go virtually unnoticed by those around you. What’s more, Invisalign aligners are fully removable for additional freedom in eating, drinking, and oral hygiene, and are made of the highest quality medical-grade plastic molded perfectly to your teeth to minimize pain. With Invisalign, checkups are generally needed less frequently than for traditional braces treatments.
Invisalign treatments are based on a series of clear aligner trays custom-molded to your teeth and treatment plan. Invisalign trays work by applying a precise amount of pressure to the teeth that need to be moved, gently pushing teeth in a certain direction. By wearing these aligners at least 22 hours a day and switching to a new set every few weeks, your teeth will safely move into the desired position– giving you a smile you can flash with confidence.
At your initial consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you. Each situation is different, but Invisalign is generally an option for issues including overcrowding, crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and uneven spacing or gaps between teeth.
Our highly-trained dental professionals will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth and jaw. We will then use those scans to map out a personalized and 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 smile.
Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material, developed over years to be the best in the industry. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them during your teeth straightening.
Wear your Invisalign clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, and take them out only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule checkups every six weeks or so.
When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners. Regularly wearing a retainer will ensure your newly-straightened teeth stay looking their best and don’t begin to shift backward.
