Modern Teeth Straightening Technology
Experience an innovative solution for teeth alignment without the use of metal braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners made from a thin, transparent plastic that makes them almost impossible for people to see. An Invisalign aligner slides over and encompasses your teeth and molars. The aligners are changed every other week to move your teeth into their desired position. Invisalign is a fast, effective treatment to straighten your teeth and will have you smiling radiantly in a short period of time.
To determine whether you can be treated with Invisalign, you will undergo an intake assessment with a member of our staff to examine your teeth and provide advice. Most cases can be solved with the use of Invisalign. The most common issues we help resolve for our clients are overbites, underbites, diastemas (gaps between teeth), crossbites, and overcrowding.
The Benefits of Removable Braces
Invisalign can lead you to a straighter smile is just 9 to 15 months. After your intake assessment, our staff will provide an in-depth explanation of your treatment. Any questions or concerns you have will be answered, and the duration of your treatment will also be discussed.
Not only will no one notice you are wearing braces, but Invisalign trays can also be removed for short periods without adverse effects. This means you remove your aligner while eating to keep food from sticking to it. It also means if you have an important meeting or photo opportunity and the braces make you uncomfortable, you can remove your Invisalign tray to feel more confident and at ease.
Having removable braces also promotes good oral hygiene, because you are able to take off the braces to brush and floss your teeth. You can also avoid the risk of white spots forming on teeth, as they sometimes did from the inability to clean properly around traditional metal braces.
Relatively Painless Way to Align Your Teeth
Invisalign braces are considered painless, especially in comparison to traditional braces. Every other week you have a new aligner, so the pressure applied to your teeth is significantly less than with a monthly visit with an orthodontist who tightens and adjusts the wires of traditional braces, which leads to sore teeth.
Once you have achieved your perfect smile, a retention phase follows. Teeth and molars have natural movement. Even after a straightening treatment, your teeth will try to move back to their original position. Your teeth may also want to shift from chewing, tongue pressure, or jaw growth. The retention phase eliminates this possibility. A night brace, or oral invisible retainer (OIR), stabilizes your smile after treatment with a normal Invisalign brace. Worn at night, the night brace is just like the transparent brace you wear during treatment. The OIR ensures your teeth settle properly into their new position without fear of them moving back to their original space.
