Traditional braces, while necessary to give you correct teeth alignment, can be unpleasant to the eye. To eliminate this issue, we use both Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™, which are a series of customized aligners to eliminate the look of traditional braces maintaining the same function. One of the advantages of Invisalign® is that they can be adjusted easily and are almost invisible. This allows you to enjoy your favorite meals normally without the need to adjust braces. It also allows you to brush and floss easily since they have no wires and brackets.
How Does It Work?
Invisalign® is designed specifically for adults and teenagers with specific orthodontic problems. It works by using a series of customized aligners to gradually move your teeth to the desired placement. Each alignment is a tailor made design specific to the patient so there are no issues with fitting and adjusting.
Each set of aligners is worn by the patient for up to two weeks and is only removed when it is time to eat, drink and brush. Depending on your orthodontic problems, treatment can range between 6 to 20 months going through a set of 10 to 40 aligners.
Invisalign® is a great way to align your teeth without the need of using metal braces. Their painless and quick treatment has made them one of the most popular options amongst teens and adults. If you are a teen or adult seeking orthodontic treatment and would like to enquire about the Invisalign® system, contact us today!
