Invisible Braces For Adults & Teens
Invisalign is an innovative way to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing that you are wearing braces. They are a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners that you put on everyday to move your teeth to a desired position. Now, you can go to prom, ace that job interview, and plan a social event without having to worry about metal brackets covering up your beautiful smile.
What Is Invisalign and Invisalign Teen?
- Invisalign is an invisible way to straighten teeth. We prescribe a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without any metal wires or brackets.
- Invisalign clear aligners are worn sequentially, by the patient, to promote extensive tooth movements. Results are accomplished little by little, week by week, until your teeth are straightened to the final position prescribed on the upper and/or lower arches.
- Invisalign clear aligners are made through a combination of orthodontic expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
- Invisalign is for adults with mild to moderate crowding or spacing.
- Invisalign is for teens with mostly permanent teeth. Teen aligners include a compliance indicator to report the amount of time the aligners are worn.
- Invisalign is removable so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. You also can brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign is more comfortable to wear because there is no metal to cause mouth irritation.
How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?
First, we work with you to determine what needs to be corrected. Then, we take impressions of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign labs where your personalized treatment plan will be developed. Next, using the latest 3-D computer technology, Invisalign creates customized aligners for you. Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to finely calibrate a sequence of aligners. Depending on the treatment plan we develop, this could mean as few as 10 or as many as 30 aligners.
You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks, taking it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth gradually move into the final alignment prescribed by the doctor. Office visits are required approximately every ten to twelve weeks.
