Invisalign: What to Expect
Invisalign provides a new and increasingly popular option for achieving a straight smile without traditional metal braces. Using Invisalign, our doctors can show patients their expected results prior to starting treatment. Patients see a virtual image of their teeth before, during and after the invisalign process. From the first day of treatment, patients can see what their smile will look like when they’re done. Doctors take series of measurements and impressions which are then used to make a series of clear custom-made aligners. Teeth are gradually straightened by wearing each set of aligners for about two weeks. The clear plastic trays are custom-made to move teeth in sequence, little by little, for each patient until the final results are achieved. A straight well aligned smile does more than add symmetry in beauty. It also results in healthy gums and teeth in a winning smile of our patients.
