Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves using a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners to correct misaligned teeth. Invisalign allows you to continue to show off your smile as it improves!
Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, the clear aligners are created based off of the digital impressions of your teeth that Dr. Johnson makes during your consultation. Each set of aligners is to be worn for one week before replacing them with the next set in the series. The aligners will gently apply force to your teeth, causing them to gradually shift into a more desirable position over time. The process of replacing your aligners will continue until you have completed the treatment, and your teeth are straightened in their final positions. The time it takes to complete the treatment will depend on your case, but on average takes 9-15 months.
Virtually invisible – Invisalign is virtually invisible; the clear material of the aligners make it possible to show off your smile, without the distracting appearance of brackets or wires like traditional braces.
Removeable – Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, there are no restrictions to your diet or how you manage your dental hygiene. You can continue to eat your favorite foods and keep your teeth clean!
Comfortable – Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth plastic material, making them comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Less time spent in the office – Because the entire series of aligners are created at the beginning, progressing through your trays is quick and easy. We only require our Invisalign patients to visit our office once every 8 weeks so we can monitor your progress.
