For patients that want straighter, better-aligned teeth that do not want to undergo lengthy, expensive orthodontic treatment with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign may be the answer. Invisalign is an orthodontic system that allows patients to adjust the spacing of their teeth and help realign them with the use of clear "aligner trays."
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal braces, and allows patients to address problems such as crowded teeth, misaligned teeth after previous orthodontic treatments, issues with bite alignment, and gaps and spaces between teeth. Patients examined and determined to be viable candidates for Invisalign will have three dimensional computer impressions taken of their teeth, which are then used to create a series of aligner trays. These trays are clear and are worn during the day and night. They are removable for eating, drinking, and cleaning. The trays are switched out every six to eight weeks to a new set of trays, which is digitally custom-fabricated to match where your teeth have shifted since the last alignment.
Treatment with Invisalign will take anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the severity of a patient's teeth. This is a great way for adults to take charge of their smile and achieve amazing results without embarrassing metal brackets and wires blocking their beautiful smile during treatment.
