Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
The convenience and ease of use of the Invisalign system has been effective in giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles. Here are some advantages of Invisalign:
The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. Typically treatment can last between 6 and 18 months. During your consultation, your Invisalign Provider can provide you with more detailed information and also determine if you are a candidate.
Aligners should be worn all the time during treatment, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth.
Absolutely. A retainer is used to hold the teeth in their new position and is required after completion of Invisalign treatment. In many cases your last aligner will be your temporary retainer, until your retention option is determined.
