Invisalign® is a fast, esthetic approach to braces. A series of custom-made clear aligners are worn, and under the care of your dentist, teeth are moved into position safely and efficiently. Under our direct supervision, Invisalign® is your key to straighter teeth – no metal, no wires…just beautiful smiles!
Schedule an appointment with our team today to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign®. Invisalign® is great for those patients that want a straighter smile but do not want to deal with the hassle of traditional braces. This is also a great option for patients who have already undergone orthodontic treatment and want small refinements or have noticed shifting because they either lost their retainers or can no longer can fit into them.
How Long Does Invisalign® Take?
A series of thin and clear trays are custom fabricated to fit your teeth and create minor movements. Each aligner is switched out every 1-3 weeks and these aligners push the teeth into better alignment. Invisalign requires a high level of patient compliance. Patients must wear the trays for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and brush their teeth. Depending on what tooth movements are being achieved, total treatment can be anywhere from 2 months to 2 years, with most being about a year.
Sometimes Invisalign® treatment will incorporate tooth-colored attachments on specific teeth. This allows the aligners to move these teeth in a more precise and efficient way, than without the attachments. These attachments can only be placed in the dental office by your favorite dental professional!
