Having straight teeth is not only a confidence builder and visually pleasing, but crowded and misaligned teeth can also be uncomfortable for chewing and create major plaque traps. Left uncorrected these plaque traps can lead to gum disease and bone loss. We have seen great success with Invisalign cases here in our office. Dr. Wright was a Premier Provider in 2003-2008, an award based upon the number of cases per year in treatment.
Invisalign® straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the treatment plan prescribed by your orthodontist or dentist. And, there are no wires or brackets so you’ll have confidence in your smile during and after treatment. In fact, most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign. And, Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.
-Invisalign can give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. it works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. sou you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
-Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem
-What do aligners look like? Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth whitening trays, but are custom -made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as ‘contact lenses’ for teeth.
-Is this a new way to straighten teeth? for years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology, Invisalign treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.
-Comfortable because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment and no metal wires usually means you spend less time in Dr. Wrights office getting adjustments.
-How it works: you wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. as you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week- until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Wright has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Wright about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. total treatment time averages from 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18-30, but both vary from case to case.
-Invisalign really works. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth.
-Uses 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom made aligner are produced.
-4 primary benefeits: 1. nearly invisible, 2. removable, 3. comfortable, 4. view treatment plan before you begin
