Invisalign® is a remarkable, modern-day orthodontic system that consists of a series of virtually invisible plastic retainers which cover the teeth, slowly realigning them into their proper positions. These retainers (also called “aligners”) can be removed for eating, brushing teeth and flossing, posing for photographs, and so forth.
We use a custom-made series of aligners that are specifically designed for your teeth. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that is worn over your teeth, so it doesn’t irritate your cheeks or gums, like some metal braces do. There are no metal brackets, wires or rubber bands.
Invisalign® works by gently applying a small amount of pressure to specific teeth until your entire smile has shifted into perfect alignment. You get a new aligner to wear approximately every two weeks until the completion of your treatment. We’ll monitor your progress through occasional checkups, usually once every six weeks.
But for the best results and a faster outcome, we recommend that our patients wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, throughout the treatment.
At every stage of the Invisalign® process, you will be able to see your dream smile coming to fruition. Many of our patients love Invisalign® because it’s barely noticeable, and you don’t have to put your life on hold for this orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign® is a patented, clear braces system that realigns your teeth into an ideal position while helping you to preserve a more natural-looking aesthetic.
