What Is Invisalign?
The Invisalign System is a series of clear orthodontic aligners that enable you to correct your teeth without having to wear metal braces. There are a series of aligners that are changed out every two weeks. The aligners gradually move the teeth and allow for removal when eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign can be used for teens and adults!
Depending on your orthodontic issues, Invisalign can help you get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted—without traditional braces. After a complimentary consultation with our dentists, we can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are invisible, removable and comfortable. People will notice you and your smile instead of your orthodontic appliances. Invisalign aligners are made with 3-D computer imaging technology and are proven effective.
Why choose Invisalign?
In addition to being virtually unnoticeable, Invisalign aligners are removable. That means you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Additionally, oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing are easier. Invisalign also allows patients to view their own virtual treatment plan when they start so they can see how their straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.
How does it work?
Invisalign patients wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and remove them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the teeth move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final position Drs. Milnar and Franco has prescribed. You’ll visit them about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment progresses as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
