Do you cringe at the thought of metal braces, but still want to obtain a fantastic smile? You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your mature image to straighten your teeth. With Invisalign clear braces, you don’t have to endure the discomfort or embarrassment of traditional orthodontia.
Adult and older teen patients often love the option of Invisalign clear braces. Through a series of clear, custom aligners, this advanced system gently shifts crooked teeth into the desired position. With these virtually undetectable aligners, only you and your orthodontist will realize that you are undergoing treatment to improve your smile.
Before beginning treatment, your orthodontist will first complete a full analysis to make sure Invisalign is the right solution for your case. Your doctor will then take photos and collect data to create an exact treatment plan. Using advanced 3-D technology, the Invisalign lab will translate the orthodontist’s instructions into a complete series of aligners.
During treatment, you will wear each aligner for around two weeks; then, switch to the next aligner. You will visit the orthodontist every four to six weeks so that the doctor can monitor your progress. Remove the aligners when you eat, brush, and floss, or for special occasions. In about 12 months, you can reveal a flawless smile to family and friends.
