If you need orthodontic treatment, our dentist may recommend Invisalign® clear aligners to help straighten your teeth and improve your smile. Invisalign orthodontic treatment can be used to correct all the same problems as braces, including crowded and crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, and bad bites (such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites). Unlike traditional braces, however, Invisalign treatment does not involve the use of metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign treatment relies on custom-made, computer-generated clear plastic aligners. When you begin treatment, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth from which your aligners will be created. A series of aligners will be designed, and as you switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks, your teeth will gradually move into their proper positions.
Benefits of Invisalign clear aligners include:
- Aligners made from smooth plastic, giving you a very comfortable treatment
- Treatment that is nearly invisible
- Removable aligners, allowing you to eat, brush and floss normally
We do recommend that you clean your aligners frequently. Because they are made of clear plastic, they can cause your teeth to appear stained, dirty and discolored if not cleaned often.
