Straighten Teeth without Brackets and Wires
Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional metal braces that can straighten teeth virtually invisibly. A comfortable and convenient orthodontic treatment, Invisalign uses a series of strong and flexible clear aligners to correct minor to major misalignment of the teeth. Invisalign eliminates the discomfort and appearance of metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands of conventional orthodontic treatment. If you are interested in a more discreet form of orthodontics, Invisalign clear aligners are beneficial for compliant teens and adults. B. Phan, D.D.S is certified in Invisalign treatment and personalizes your treatment plan based on the condition of your teeth and your smile goals.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign treatment is targeted and custom, designed based on digital images taken of your teeth at the beginning of treatment. Once your series of clear aligners is ready, you will wear them for 20-22 hours each day, moving to the next aligner in the series every two or three weeks. Invisalign treatment may also include attachments, which are bonded to certain teeth to direct more specific movement.
Your Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and drinking and lets you maintain a proper and unrestricted diet throughout treatment. Along with rinsing your clear aligners, you can brush them with a soft tooth brush to keep them clean, with no need for additional tools or oral hygiene routines. Once your Invisalign treatment is complete (sometimes in as little as six to 18 months), your teeth will be in a more ideal position, creating a harmonious and attractive new smile!
