What Is Invisalign®?​

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to move teeth into proper positions. The aligners are clear, making them virtually invisible. They are also comfortable and removable. We design your aligners based on 3D images of your teeth and a treatment plan we develop with you. Invisalign can give you a beautiful, healthy smile in less time than traditional metal braces.

Invisalign can help with a number of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Bite misalignment (including underbite, overbite, and crossbite)
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding of teeth

Invisalign can be a great option for many of our patients, so if you’re interested in learning more, talk with our team. We can discuss your needs and help you determine the best orthodontic treatment for you.

Benefits Of Invisalign®

The Invisalign system offers our adult orthodontics patients a number of benefits.

  • They are virtually invisible, so you can smile with confidence throughout treatment.
  • The trays are easily removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • They are easier to clean than traditional braces, decreasing the occurrence of gum disease and other issues.
  • There is no need to worry about broken brackets or elastics, and the trays are durable.
  • There are fewer dental visits required in order to progress through your treatment.
  • The treatment is just as effective as traditional braces but faster and more comfortable.

The Invisalign® Process

To start your Invisalign journey, we’ll have you come in for a consultation. This gives our team the chance to evaluate your orthodontic needs and discuss your smile goals with you.

If we find that Invisalign is right for you, we’ll take pictures of your teeth to build a 3D computer model of your smile. We use this model to design your trays.

Once your trays are ready, you’ll wear each set for about two weeks, and then move on to the next trays in the series. With each set, your teeth will move a little more into the desired positions. Approximately every six weeks, you’ll visit our office for check-in. This allows us to monitor your progress and make adjustments if needed.

The average treatment time for our Invisalign patients is between eight and 15 months. Your specific treatment time will be based on your needs and goals for your teeth.

Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic treatment option for our adult patients. It allows you to straighten your teeth in a way that is subtle, gentle, and effective. Ready to find out if you’re a candidate? Contact us now to schedule an appointment with the Overlake Orthodontics team.
