Through the use of clear aligner technology, Invisalign has been able to provide an option for those seeking orthodontic treatment without the use of traditional metal braces. Custom removable aligner trays are replaced every two weeks shifting your teeth until the desired result is achieved. Invisalign can be used in cases involving overbites, underbites, crossbites, gaps, and overcrowding. Since the trays are made of a smooth plastic and can be easily removed, they allow for better hygiene, less cheek and gum irritation and no hassle in food consumption.
What’s involved with getting Invisalign?
Once your dentist decides that you are good candidate for Invisalign, impressions and x-rays will be taken of your teeth. A treatment plan will be created and your dentist will then be able to show you a computerized video of how your teeth will move and shift as your treatment progresses. Treatment time will vary depending on the severity of each individual case
