So what exactly is Invisalign?
Do you wish to straighten your teeth but dread the idea of traditional, bulky metal braces? Ever wonder if there was an easier way to fix this problem without sacrificing comfort, convenience and style? If so, Invisalign is the solution for you! Using a custom-made series of aligners created just for you, Invisalign gradually and gently shifts your teeth into place based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans out for you. Made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic, Orthodontists like Dr. Bina Park use Invisalign to eliminate the use of traditional braces which include high maintenance materials like metal brackets and wires. More conveniently, Invisalign only requires a new set of aligners every two weeks until treatment is complete.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Length of treatment varies per patient and can only be determined by your Orthodontist. However the average case takes about 12 months for adults.
What happens after treatment?
The use of a retainer is usually recommended after most orthodontic procedures to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back to their original position. Invisalign recommends the Vivera retainer which is made of material that is 30% stronger than other leading clear retainers.
What are some more advantages to Invisalign?
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign allows you to eat whatever foods you enjoy, lets you remove the device whenever you want, only requires a visit to your Orthodontist every 4-6 weeks, allows you to brush and floss your teeth normally, and lets you enjoy virtually invisible or clear teeth-straightening.
