Have you been wanting to straighten your teeth without having to face the world with a mouthful of braces? If so, you may want to consider Invisalign®. With virtually invisible aligners, you can finally get that straight smile you’ve always wanted without anyone ever knowing!
What is Invisalign®?
The word orthodontics comes from the Greek words "orthos" which means straight, and "odon," which means tooth. Orthodontics refers to straightening teeth using different methods including the innovative Invisalign® aligners brought to you by Align Technology.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system that discreetly straightens your teeth over time using a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Each aligner gently shifts your teeth, moving them vertically or horizontally, or even rotating them when needed. Invisalign® works well for adults and teens, with Invisalign Teen® featuring compliance indicators to ensure sufficient use.
As you move from one set of aligners to the next, you will see your teeth gradually moving into position following your custom plan. Your invisible braces are made of the proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material that is designed to shift and align your teeth gently.
Invisalign® vs Braces
There are many reasons to choose Invisalign®. Unlike with traditional braces, the clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to get straight teeth without detracting from your smile. You can brush and floss with ease, and you can eat all your favorite foods. All you need to do is remove the aligners then pop them back in. With your clear braces, you don’t have to worry about metal brackets and wires with sharp edges scraping the inside of your mouth.
With Invisalign®, you'll achieve your perfect smile up to 50 percent faster than with traditional braces. The SmartForce® features along with the SmartTrack® material make Invisalign® aligners efficient for correcting complex cases. These innovations allow us to straighten your teeth with more precision.
What conditions can Invisalign® correct?
Invisalign® can correct gapped, crooked and crowded teeth. The treatments are also effective in addressing overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Aligning your teeth and bite will not only reflect on your oral health, but your overall well being.
What is the procedure?
During your initial consultation, we will use a scanner to make precise images of your teeth. Next, our orthodontist will map out a treatment plan, and will even show you a preview of your new smile. You will need to wear your aligners from 20-22 hours daily for the best results. Upon concluding your treatment, you will need to wear retainers to protect your new smile.
