Invisalign Information

What is Invisalign?

Dr. Mike is a Certified Provider of Invisalign Braces. Invisalign braces allow you to have a beautiful and straight smile without needing to wear braces. Instead, Invisalign involves using sets of invisible, comfortable and removable aligners that are customized for you. The aligners will gently and slowly move your teeth into place. This modern treatment is made with 3D computer imaging technology and is extremely effective at straightening teeth.

Why Choose Invisalign?

A huge advantage of Invisalign is that nobody knows you are wearing it. In addition, you can take out the aligners, so you have no difficulties eating or drinking. It is also very easy to maintain your dental care routine, since there is no problem brushing or flossing. Since there are no metal wires or brackets, Invisalign is also very comfortable and will not cause any mouth abrasions. You also do not need to visit the orthodontist as frequently, since you are not dealing with wires and brackets that need constant adjustments.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Each set of aligners are worn for about two weeks. In order to keep on track, you should only remove them when you are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing. When you move from one set of aligners to the next, your teeth will slowly move until they have reached their final positions. You will visit the orthodontist about once every six weeks so that your progress can be checked. The course of treatment varies by patient, but is usually anywhere from 9-15 months. During your treatment, you could have anywhere from 18-30 aligners that will be worn.
