Virtually-Invisible Clear Aligners
Get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted – without braces.
Invisalign® is a system of custom-made clear acrylic aligners designed to straighten your teeth and align your bite. Each aligner in the series is formed with small incremental movements incorporated in them. They fit over your teeth, but you can remove them any time, making it easier for you to eat, drink, brush and floss.
Invisalign is far more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
We’ll use our impressionless 3D scanner to create a model of your mouth. Then, we'll make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then you begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You'll get a new set of custom-made aligners every couple of weeks, and each successive set is designed to move your teeth a bit more toward the final desired position. Progress is monitored on visits to your doctor about every six weeks.
Depending on the patient, most people wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months, with 18–30 sets typically used over the course of the treatment.
Differences Between Invisalign & Traditional Metal Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal parts that might irritate your mouth. And, because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces.
In fact, the aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water, so you need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear braces.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth each time you eat before putting the aligners back in place. Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
