Orthodontics

If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to straighten teeth. Invisalign® may be a solution for you. Invisalign® is removable and nearly invisible when in place. The discrete look of the clear plastic trays is ideal for adults and working professionals.

Invisalign® works by using a series of custom made aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place. These aligners are gradually altered every one to two weeks, until the desired result is achieved.

The Benefits of Straight Teeth

While there are obvious cosmetic reasons to straighten teeth, there are also numerous health benefits:

  • Straight teeth are easier to clean. Crooked teeth are prone to trapping food and plaque in areas that can’t be effectively brushed and flossed
  • Over crowded teeth are more prone to gum disease, along with inflammation and redness
  • Pressure on over crowded teeth can cause cracks and damage to enamel
  • Gum disease has also been linked to serious health problems outside the mouth, such as heart disease. Straightening teeth can enhance overall health, as well as oral health.

Invisalign FAQ

HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

During the course of treatment, the patient is given a series of clear trays that fit over the teeth, each set of trays makes a slight adjustment to the position of the teeth until the desired result is achieved.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

The length of treatment varies from patient to patient, but the average treatment length is approximately 12 months for adults.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT?

Some patients are recommended to wear a retainer after orthodontic treatment to ensure that teeth don’t return to their original position over time. Patients will need to consult with their dentist to determine if a retainer is required.
