Invisalign® is an alternative to metal braces. The clear aligners are gaining popularity because they may shorten the overall treatment time and are practically invisible on the teeth. Orsborn Orthodontics is proud to be a certified provider of Invisalign® which give you a convenient and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Facts about Invisalign
WHAT IS THE INVISALIGN® SYSTEM?
The Invisalign® system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
Dr. Orsborn will determine your treatment time and it will be based on your specific needs.
WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN® TREATMENT?
Invisalign® aligners are a game changer because the clear aligners are removable and you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth. Invisalign® treatment technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
Invisalign® For Teens
The clear nature of Invisalign® makes it a preferred choice for many teenagers who don’t want the look of metal braces.
Teens will receive Invisalign® clear aligners created with the Invisalign® system’s proprietary SmartTrack material. Throughout treatment, you can monitor your son’s or daughter’s compliance through an indicator on the aligner. Your teen will wear the aligners for 22 hours per day, but can easily remove them so there are fewer interruptions to his or her lifestyle.
