Treatment with Invisalign

Before Invisalign treatment, we take digital impressions of the teeth. These impressions are used to help map out the layout of each pair of aligners. Each pair will vary slightly to gradually realign the teeth in a straighter position. Once the first aligners are complete, we will ensure that they fit properly in-office.

Patients will wear their aligners for 22 hours a day. The aligners should only be removed when eating or brushing and flossing. Cleaning the aligners after each wear will also keep them fresh. We will also provide patients with a case so they can keep their aligners safe when they are not in use.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers multiple benefits. Because Invisalign aligners are made of clear but durable plastic, they offer a discreet option for our patients. Invisalign aligners conform to teeth and do not irritate the gums. Metal braces have brackets and wires that can poke the gums and cause bleeding or irritation.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. Patients can remove their aligners to eat, brush, and floss. this means they do not have any dietary restrictions. Invisalign patients can also thoroughly clean their teeth and gums without a metal appliance in the way.
