A Clear Path To Straighter Teeth
Straighter teeth don’t have to come at the cost of wearing noticeable metal braces. While the conventional metal brackets and wire option are effective, some patients prefer a more discreet method. The good news is that Invisalign® can effectively straighten teeth and improve a misaligned bite using clear aligner trays that are hardly noticeable.
How Invisalign® Works
Invisalign® is a system that uses a series of plastic, custom-molded aligners that snap into place over your teeth. We first take a digital image of your teeth and mouth, which is then used to fabricate your custom aligners. You’ll change aligners about every two weeks to keep up with the shifting position of your teeth. We’ll review the process and make any necessary adjustments along the way.
The Invisalign® Benefit
- Discreet: Invisalign® is a clear, customized piece that is barely noticeable. It’s one of the reasons why patients choose this option. No one needs to know that you’re straightening your teeth!
- Removable: The aligners can be removed for eating and brushing your teeth. This allows you to properly clean and floss your teeth, as well as eat whatever foods you want without worrying about breaking your braces.
- Comfort: Unlike metal braces that can poke your gums or inner cheek, the clear aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear.
- Effective: Don’t let the simple design of the clear aligners fool you. Patients see great results in as little as 20 weeks, as long as the aligners are worn all the time (except for when eating and cleaning your teeth).
Just as metal braces work by slowly shifting your teeth into the desired position, Invisalign® works the same way.
