Considering Invisalign® braces? Invisalign® has quickly revitalized the orthodontics world. Now we have different options to give our patients besides metal brackets. Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s barely noticeable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
During your treatment, you will be supplied with a series of aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by one of our qualified dentists, specifically for your situation. When the aligners are placed on your teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually shift from their current position. After two weeks, you’ll begin using the next set of aligners, which will continue the teeth straightening process. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to their final position.
