Invisalign treatment can be a great alternative to traditional metal braces. It consists of a series of clear plastic aligners made to fit your smile. They are comfortable to wear and can be removed for meals and for cleaning. Their most popular feature is their clarity. Because they are transparent and fit directly against the teeth, they are practically impossible for anyone to see.
Your treatment will begin with a visit with our dentists to see if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. Then, we will take digital impressions of your smile. Those impressions will be sent to lab and used to create your series of aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for a prescribed amount of time before switching to the next set. During your treatment, your teeth will be gently moved into their proper positions.
You will find that your aligners are very easy to care for! We will provide you with a case to hold your aligners while you eat or play sports. The aligners are removed for cleaning, which can be done with a simple solution of soap or warn water or a nonabrasive toothpaste and soft-bristled toothpaste. Invisalign also offers a solution designed to clean your appliances.
