Invisalign® is a tooth positioning system that’s virtually unseen, extremely predictable in its results, and easily removable for eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign usually requires less time than conventional braces, and we can even tell you what you’ll look like at given points during treatment. On average, the treatment can be completed in as little as 12 months.
Invisalign technology is a series of computer generated clear forms or aligners that guide teeth gradually into place. With Invisalign there are no unattractive metal brackets and wires, and Invisalign is usually a less painful experience overall.
There are many benefits to using Invisalign:
- Fewer dental visits than regular braces
- Aligners can be removed to eat
- Healthier for teeth and gums because aligners are removed to brush teeth
- Greater comfort with no wires or metal brackets
There are a great number of variations with Invisalign, and it all relates to what the treating dentist wants as the final result. After an examination to see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, the doctor will review your options and the process, and take X-rays and photos of your teeth.
Once all the X-rays and photos are scanned, they are emailed to the Invisalign technicians who work on your individual case. The scanning allows the technicians to illustrate their suggestions for the final position of your teeth to the dentist, who may accept or modify their suggestions.
