Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Invisalign also has options for teens! Invisalign Teen uses the same SmartTrack material to give teens a customized treatment plan for their needs. The system also includes optional blue compliance dots that can help to monitor treatment progress to ensure that teens get the greatest smile possible!
Invisalign is the only aligner system that uses SmartTrack material to move your teeth into their correction position with precision and comfort. What does that mean for you? More predictable movements between each appointment and aligners that fit your teeth more snugly!
You can move about your daily routine without worrying about the appearance of metal braces. The clear technology allows your teeth to move about discreetly.
If you’re concerned about maintaining oral hygiene while in orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is a great option. Aligners are removed whenever you eat or drink something besides water, so it’s easy for you to continue brushing and flossing like normal!
Without brackets or wires, there’s less that needs to be adjusted at each visit. This means shorter treatment times for every patient!
