To determine whether Invisalign is the appropriate option for you, our certified orthodontist will need to complete a thorough examination. A 3D image will then be generated which will be used to make a proper teeth impression. This digital imaging can also provide a look at how your treatment will progress.
Your custom-made aligners will be produced through a lab and placed over your teeth. These aligners are comfortable and barely noticeable, either to you or to others. Invisalign puts far less tension on teeth than standard braces and will allow you to eat whatever you choose because they are removable. Normal oral hygiene can also be continued as normal. You will need to replace the aligners every two weeks with the next set. Unlike conventional braces, no tightening is required and appointments will only be required approximately every six to eight weeks.
Successful treatment will require that you wear the aligners a minimum of 20 hours per day. You may continue to eat, brush and floss as usual, but need to replace the aligners right away. In most cases, a retainer will be used following treatment to keep teeth stable and in their proper place.

Based on its benefits, Invisalign is a cost-effective option for orthodontic needs. The system has become so popular that it is now more affordable than ever, particularly in light of fewer appointments and the elimination of additional items needed to maintain oral hygiene for patients with conventional braces.
The decision to use Invisalign is entirely yours, and all costs will be discussed at the initial visit.
