If you’re looking to correct misaligned teeth and noticeable gaps easily, Invisalign® is one of our best orthodontic options. Traditional braces require daily maintenance, while Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to adapt to your daily routine much more easily, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite foods, practice your normal oral hygiene routine, and smile with confidence day in and day out. If you’re ready to explore the benefits of Invisalign® even further, contact our office today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian Lee.
Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear, customized aligners that are each meant to represent a different stage of your orthodontic movement. These aligners are able to be removed at any time from the mouth, especially when brushing, flossing, or eating meals. You can even briefly take them out in situations where you want your smile to look it's very best, such as at parties or in photographs!
First, our dentists will capture detailed impressions and photographs of your teeth. We will be able to use this information to create a three-dimensional digital projection of how your smile will appear once you’ve completed treatment. Then, we send all of this along to the Invisalign® Laboratory, where they will expertly manufacture your set of aligners and return them to our practice in a timely fashion.
Our dentists will provide you with a couple of aligners at a time, and you will be instructed to wear each one for about two weeks and at least 20 hours each day. During this time, you will be attending regular checkups as well, during which we’ll assess your progress and provide you with your new aligners. Most patients are able to complete treatment with Invisalign® in under one year; however, it’s important to remember that every case is different.
