Invisalign has become a massively popular orthodontic option for teens and adults throughout American who want to have their teeth straightened. It works by using a similar principle to traditional braces, but it accomplishes the same results without unsightly or uncomfortable wires and brackets. Instead, Invisalign uses a set of trays that are made from transparent plastic. Using the latest computer imaging technology, your dentist, Dr. Clifton Baldwin, will create a series of custom-made aligners that will gradually move your teeth over time. You can have the smile that you have always wanted with a virtually undetectable solution.
After performing an initial consultation to ensure that you are a candidate, Dr. Baldwin will take digital impressions of your mouth. This allows him to map the movement of your teeth, which is then transferred to a series of custom-made aligners.
You wear each aligner in the series for 1 to 2 weeks for at least 22 hours per day. As you progress throughout each one, your teeth are gradually moved into their ideal positions. In about 1 year, you will have finished the series, leaving you with a straight, healthy smile.
Traditional braces attach wires and brackets to your teeth to gradually pull them into position. While they are effective, they are highly noticeable and uncomfortable. To resolve the issue, they can be attached to the back surfaces of your teeth or tooth-colored brackets and wires can be used. Although this makes them less noticeable, there are still restrictions and a lengthy treatment time.
Invisalign resolves the common disadvantages of traditional options. With the clear aligners, your treatment will be virtually undetectable. You will enjoy:
