What are Invisalign® Clear Braces?
Invisalign® Braces are teeth aligners, created from a clear plastic, that help straighten your teeth without the need for traditional metal braces. These clear braces are convenient, easy to maintain, and discreet.
You used to need intrusive and uncomfortable metal wires and rubber bands to get the straight smile you’ve dreamed of sharing. Now, you can slip your aligners on and not worry about broken wires or needing your braces regularly tightened. With Invisalign, you no longer have to worry about replacing broken rubber bands or food getting stuck in the wires. You are free to create the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are many benefits to using Invisalign® clear braces.
Customized Fit | the aligners are created from an impression of your teeth, and customized for your mouth.
No Metal Wires or Rubber Bands | Invisalign® slides onto your teeth. Its smooth plastic doesn’t aggravate your gum tissue, and you won’t get uncomfortable wires poking into your cheeks, gums, or lips.
Discreet | Because Invisalign is made out of a clear, see-through material, people may not even notice you are wearing orthodontics.
No Stuck on Food | It’s easy to slide Invisalign® off before a meal, relieving the worry of getting food embarrassingly stuck in your braces.
Regular Brushing and Flossing | Like when eating, you can slide off your clear braces for brushing and flossing.
How does it work?
During your first appointment, we will do a diagnosis to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. Invisalign® will use x-rays, pictures, and molds of your teeth to create a 3D representation. From this image, we will create a detailed treatment plan, which includes the length and stages of your treatment.
You will receive new aligners about every two weeks, each one progressing your treatment to the next stage. You will need to keep your aligners on an average of 20-22 hours a day to ensure the desired results. A visit to our offices will be needed periodically about every six weeks to make sure your treatment is on track.
