The Invisalign clear aligner system gradually straightens your teeth through gentle repositioning. Smooth trays are custom created from clear plastic specifically for your treatment. First, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create a 3D image used to formulate your specific treatment plan. We’ll be able to digitally determine the outcome of your treatment, and show you what your smile will look like. The aligners are crafted from BPA-free plastic that doesn’t irritate your mouth, as the metal from traditional orthodontics often can.
About every two weeks, you’ll switch aligners, which are virtually invisible. Most people will not know you are wearing the aligners. For best results, we recommend:
- wearing your aligners at least 20 to 22 hours each day,
- removing them only to eat, drink and brush your teeth
- No restrictions on what you can eat, unlike traditional braces
- brush and floss like you always have, making the whole system convenient
We’ll evaluate your progress throughout the course of treatment, which typically takes between 12 and 18 months, though each smile is different. See what Invisalign can do for your smile, and discover the secret to straightening.
