Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our doctor may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss.
Metal braces may interfere with a teen’s active lifestyle; school, dating, sports and hanging out with friends are important parts of life, and braces could get in the way of reaching meaningful goals. Invisalign Teen® treatment utilizes the innovative technology of Invisalign clear aligners to help our teen patients reach the goals they have for their smile in a discreet, comfortable way. Orthodontics does not have to interfere with the exciting time of life that teens are experiencing.
During your Invisalign treatment, we will meet with you periodically to evaluate your smile’s progress and to give you new, modified trays to keep your orthodontic treatment on track. Our doctor can use Invisalign Teen treatment as a way to help our teen patients discreetly achieve the straight smiles they want. We invite you to contact our office to learn more about Invisalign Teen clear aligners and schedule your appointment with our friendly team.
