Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you’ll have a new reason to smile.
Upon an initial examination, your accredited orthodontist decides if Invisalign is right for you. Your doctor will write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates your doctor’s instructions into series of precisely customized aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually — week by week, millimeter by millimeter — until you’ve achieved the intended result: straighter teeth.
Generally, you visit your doctor no more often than you would with braces and the length of treatment is about the same.
Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it’s removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. With Invisalign, there’s nothing to hide.
Look at the chart below to see how Invisalign compares to other treatment options. This Invisalign comparison chart is clearly evident that Invisalign outperforms other aligners. When it comes to creating beautiful smiles, Invisalign is the clear winner.
