What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign aligners are a modern and effective way to achieve a straighter smile. These aligners are nearly invisible, offering a discreet option compared to traditional braces. They can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing, minimally affecting your everyday life.

Our aligners work by gradually shifting your teeth into their desired positions by applying gentle pressure. Each set of aligners is typically worn for about two weeks before transitioning to the next set in the series. This gradual process effectively moves your teeth into proper alignment over time.

Our Invisalign Clear Aligner Process

We will begin your treatment by scheduling a consultation with our dentist. They will examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign aligners are right for you. If you are deemed a suitable candidate, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab, where your aligners will be made.

You will return to our office to pick up a few weeks' worth of aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks each and for 22 hours a day. Your aligners should only be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Every 6-8 weeks, you will return to our office to pick up your next set of aligners and have our dentist examine your alignment progress.

What Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Treat?

Our office recognizes that Invisalign aligners can treat many orthodontic cases. We will evaluate your needs to determine the correct treatment for you. Our dentist has the skill to treat mild to moderate cases of:

  • Crowded Teeth: When there isn't enough space in the jaw for your teeth to fit comfortably, they may overlap or twist. Invisalign aligners can gradually align overcrowded teeth.
  • Spaces Between Teeth: Sometimes, there can be gaps or spaces between your teeth. Our clear aligners can help gradually close these gaps.
  • Minor Bite Problems: This includes overbite, underbite, or crossbite where the misalignment is not severe. Our Invisalign aligners can help correct these issues by gently shifting teeth into the correct position.
  • Mild Relapse: Our aligners can realign your smile if you have had orthodontic treatment, but your teeth have shifted back over time.

Maintaining Your Smile with Vivera™ Retainers

After completing your Invisalign treatment, it's important to wear a retainer to keep your teeth aligned. Our office provides Vivera retainers after treatment to uphold your smile. These retainers are customized using the same technology and materials as your Invisalign aligners, allowing for a seamless transition. Crafted for durability and tailored from 3D models of your teeth, our Vivera retainers offer a precise fit. We'll guide you with proper instructions on using and wearing your retainer to preserve your aligned smile.
