Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners.
Invisalign, the Clear Alternative to Metal Braces
From mild cases of crowded and crooked teeth to much more difficult dental problems involving overbite and underbite, Invisalign may be the perfect teeth straightening option for you. This patented technology of “clear braces” has become an attractive alternative to metal braces for many orthodontic patients and cosmetic dentists.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry technology. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign “clear braces” are a virtually invisible method of straightening your teeth. You will be fitted with removable, see-through aligners that have been custom made to fit your teeth comfortably. These aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth over a period of two weeks. Every two weeks you simply pop in a new set with occasional checkups with Dr. Harvey every six weeks. As treatment progresses, with little interference to your daily life, your teeth will straighten into their proper calculated positions that we planned out for you. With the help of Invisalign’s modern approach, you can achieve a confident smile in as little as 6-15 months of treatment without people even knowing that you are straightening your teeth.
Your Invisalign treatment begins with a thorough examination and analysis of your teeth using photos, X-rays, and impressions to determine whether Invisalign in the correct treatment. If confirmed, Invisalign will then use this information to create cutting edge 3D digital images, allowing our dentist to devise your specialized treatment plan, mapping out each incremental movement of your teeth and providing you with a virtual picture of the process. While each case is unique, a treatment time estimation will be provided and custom aligner specifications will be submitted to the Invisalign laboratory. Aligners consist of a soft, BPA-free plastic that will not aggravate gums and cheeks like conventional braces do. Comfortably wear them all day and simply remove for teeth cleaning and eating.
Invisalign offers the advantage of straight teeth, confidence, and a relatively quick process with minimal effect on your schedule.
