How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a unique way to move teeth without having to wear braces. Once it’s determined that you’re a candidate, we gather some information about your condition and decide how you want your teeth to look. At the Invisalign laboratory, your treatment is done virtually and three-dimensionally on a computer. If you are happy with the appearance of the end result, all of the aligners are then made and shipped to my office. You then wear your aligners throughout the day and night, but the advantage of this over braces is that you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth. The aligners slowly move your teeth over a two-week period, at which time you put in the next set. You come to my office every six weeks for a quick visit in order to make sure that everything is moving along as planned. For the right situation, Invisalign is a great way to get a great smile.
