Invisalign® employs a modern technique developed to straighten teeth without the hassle of traditional metal wires. Invisalign® is a clear, removable device (tray) that you wear over your top and/or bottom teeth for about 20 hours a day. The trays ultimately make it more convenient for you to eat, brush and floss – because they are easily removable.
They are also more comfortable and easy to wear. Invisalign® is nearly invisible and can help you regain your confidence as your teeth are straightened without the look of traditional metal braces.
The process of getting Invisalign® is easy, convenient, and done in comfort. It begins with a consultation with our dentist. Once they determine Invisalign® is right for you, a model of your teeth will be created using our iTero 3D scanner.
As you lay back comfortably, a complete model of your mouth will be created using our iTero scanner. The model is then saved to our computer to create an easy, step-by-step process towards achieving the smile you want. You’ll even be able to see a preview of what your teeth can look like upon completion of treatment!
A new set of aligners is created every two weeks. Each set of Invisalign® trays is a step in the process of making your teeth straighter than the previous set. The amount of time and number of aligners will depend on each individual case.
Invisalign® is a great choice because it eliminates most problems that traditional braces can cause. It reduces pain and mouth sores that patients might endure from the metal brackets and wires. It can also decrease the likelihood of tooth decay and plaque buildup from inadequate brushing and flossing.
