Orthodontics and Invisalign®
Some teenagers and adults may not want the appearance of traditional metal braces.
That’s where Invisalign comes in. Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets. Instead, it uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners that slip over your teeth. Invisalign is virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone except your dentist will know that you’re actually straightening your teeth.
Have you ever wondered, “Am I a candidate for Invisalign?” A free consultation can answer that question. Often the answer is “Yes.” Our wide experience with the technology allows us to help even those patients who have been told by others that clear aligners won’t work for them.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign system combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your dentist. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and taken out only to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually until the final alignment is attained. You’ll be smiling like you never have before—during as well as after treatment!
If Invisalign is not the best option for you, we can provide traditional braces.
Catch a Child’s Problems Early
We recommend an examination soon after a child’s adult teeth begin to appear. At this early stage we can more easily address and correct small orthodontic problems before they become big, expensive ones. Using modern appliances, we can guide your child’s teeth and optimize their bite function. In some instances, we can help you and your child avoid braces entirely!
