Invisalign® treatment is an advanced aligner system that gradually straightens teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable, clear, and virtually invisible when worn.
Who are Invisalign aligners for?
Your dentist may recommend Invisalign treatment in you’re experiencing any of the following issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Open Bite
The key benefits of Invisalign Treatment
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign Aligners are virtually invisible while worn.
Because smoother-edged clear aligners have no need for brackets and wires, they tend to cause less irritation than traditional metal braces.
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, maintain proper oral hygiene is much easier. Clear aligners can be removed before meals, meaning you won’t have to worry about trapped food debris. And no special changes to your diet are necessary! Being able to take out your aligners also means you can maintain your typical oral hygiene habits: regular brushing and flossing.
What to expect from the process
Once precise impressions of your teeth are taken using the iTero digital scanner, all x-rays, photographs, and other necessary information is sent to Invisalign’s California headquarters. Next, a virtual 3D model of your teeth is created, after which we develop a digital treatment plan. An in-depth video detailing every stage of the process is then produced, covering all information regarding pricing, estimated treatment length, and a projection of the final position of your teeth. Before anything is finalized, your input is greatly encouraged, and we’re happy to make any necessary adjustments with Invisalign Headquarters until you’re perfectly satisfied and comfortable with your treatment plan.
Once your aligners are ready, you’ll wear them every day (usually for a year) and remove them to eat and brush your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks. Every new set is slightly tighter than the last, gradually moving your teeth to their new position. The treatment is followed by a form of retention (often a nighttime retainer or bonded wire) to maintain results.
