Invisalign and Clear Aligners
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that helps to correct a variety of orthodontic problems. These clear aligner trays are virtually invisible to the naked eye and work similarly to traditional metal braces. They are easy to wear and can be fully removed to properly and fully clean your teeth. We offer Invisalign to patients looking to enhance and perfect their smiles.
Why is Invisalign needed?
Invisalign may be needed if you have a smile that is crooked, misaligned or crowded. The aligners should be worn for 22 or more hours both day and night for effective results. Invisalign may even help with malocclusion problems like underbites and overbites. Treatment is specific to each individual patient, with some needing Invisalign for just a little over six months and others requiring treatment for two or more years.
What makes you a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign uses s system of clear trays to deliver high-quality results. They are useful for teens and adults who are able to follow through with treatment and keep the aligners in place. Ideally, Invisalign should be worn for about 22 hours each day and only removed to eat and brush your teeth. You will have a consultation prior to Invisalign treatment to determine if it’s right for you.
What happens during the Invisalign procedure?
You will start the process with a thorough consultation. This helps us to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Once this has been done, you will have impressions taken of your teeth so that we can create your first set of aligners. You will need to come in for routine appointments to have more impressions and trays done. It is crucial that you wear your aligner trays for most of the day and night in order for results to be effective. We can help in teaching you how to care for and wear your new Invisalign trays.
