A New Way to Straighten Teeth
As an alternative to conventional braces, a system called Invisalign allows us to straighten your teeth without the inconvenience of brackets and wires.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth.
• Invisalign aligners are more aesthetic than braces.
• They are removable, which makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth.
• The aligners are smooth and comfortable, and they don’t irritate your gums, cheek, or tongue.
• Invisalign eliminates any allergic reactions that you may experience with metal.
Fabrication and Using Invisalign
We send impressions of the patient’s teeth, bite registrations, photographs, and x-rays, accompanied by a treatment plan, to Invisalign laboratory. The lab then contructs the aligners-a set of clear molds. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks, and the patient removes them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
The average length of time is 9 to 15 months to complete orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.
