Invisalign® is an advanced orthodontic technique that can discreetly straighten your teeth without the discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that gradually straighten your teeth to the desired position. Our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Edward Romano, will create a customized Invisalign® treatment plan for you to help you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Many people don’t want to deal with the hassles and treatment time associated with traditional orthodontic techniques. With Invisalign®, you can achieve effective, long-lasting results without letting others know you are undergoing treatment. Benefits of Invisalign® include:
- Aligners are removable for eating, drinking, and daily dental hygiene routines
- Clear, virtually invisible teeth aligners
- No brackets or wires
- Less time is often necessary to achieve optimal results
- Less maintenance is required during treatment
- Reduced need for office visits
- Greater comfort
- Can be combined with other procedures for a comprehensive smile makeover
Following an oral examination, our dentists will be able to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign®. Our team will then take digital impressions of your teeth, which will then be used to create a set of custom-designed clear teeth aligners to use over the treatment period.
After you have worn the first set of aligners for about two weeks, you will replace them with the next set. Each aligner is slightly different than the previous, which enables Invisalign technology to gradually move your teeth to the desired position.
The Invisalign® process typically takes about 7 to 15 months to complete, depending on the starting position of your teeth. Invisalign® aligners should be worn consistently throughout the day, but can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
