Invisalign: an Alternative Teeth Alignment Treatment

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It resembles a clear plastic retainer and works effectively, almost like invisible braces.  You can easily take it off when you want to eat, brush, or floss. Invisalign provides visible results in just six weeks. However, the duration of treatment can vary depending on how much work your teeth need. The best part is that you can remove it anytime you want.  After assessing the structure and shape of your teeth, our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must wear them every day.

How Does It Work?
Invisalign is a treatment that involves a series of plastic shells that are clear and transparent and customized to tightly fit around your teeth.

Once you have decided to get Invisalign, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will replicate the structure of your teeth. Next, our dentist will discuss with you a customized treatment plan. The treatment plan will be designed to cater your needs and you will also be able to see the exact result it will have on your teeth by observing the 3-D plaster model of your teeth structure. Once you approve the treatment plan, our dentist will provide you with a series of invisible aligners. Our staff will place the first aligner on your teeth and instruct you on how you should proceed.

You will have to most likely change your aligners every few weeks to ensures that, by the end of your treatment plan, you achieve a perfectly straight and healthy smile.
