Invisalign is a treatment best designed for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of their dental arch. It uses clear trays that fit snugly over the teeth in the dental arch to gently move them into better positioning. If patients comply with treatment, they will be able to enjoy a new smile often in a year or less! We evaluate patients to determine if they are a good fit for this treatment. We may refer patients with more severe malocclusion to an orthodontic specialist in the area who can provide further assistance.
Invisalign relies on patient compliance, so being prudent in caring for and using the trays is vital to ensuring the best possible results from your treatment. Invisalign trays are fabricated using digital scans of a patient’s current smile. The Invisalign laboratories use special software to create a series of trays to get the patient’s smile into proper alignment over several months. The trays made for Invisalign treatment are each used for two weeks, allowing patients to progress through the treatment independently with few recall visits to the dental office.
