Invisalign is an alternative way to achieving straighter teeth without using conventional braces. Invisalign is a patented product, which uses advanced three-dimensional computer imaging technology to transform an individual’s bite impressions into clear and removable aligners. Invisalign has been proven effective in both clinical research and practices nationwide.
Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since wearing braces, Invisalign may be the solution you have been looking for. Because no metal wires and brackets are used, Invisalign is both comfortable and aesthetic. And because it is removable, you can eat, brush, and floss as you would normally do.
Through a series of bite impressions and photographs a movie will be created to show the exact duration and expected results before the treatment is initiated. Invisalign technicians will then fabricate a series of precisely customized aligners. Each set of aligners are worn for a 2-week period gradually moving your teeth, millimeter by millimeter until the desired results are achieved.
The average treatment takes about 12 months to complete, although this may vary depending on the severity of an individual’s case.
