Invisalign® stands apart from other orthodontic treatments designed to straighten teeth and correct “bite” problems (how the upper and lower teeth come together when the mouth is closed).
Straighten teeth without braces
First available in the late 1990s, Invisalign® is a treatment for crooked, crowded, unevenly-spaced, and misaligned teeth. It has also evolved to effectively correct a wide range of bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite, and open bite).
Invisalign® treatment involves using a series of oral devices. These devices are made from smooth, flexible, and clear advanced plastic. They slip into your mouth and over the teeth, similar to other types of oral appliances (like retainers). Custom-fit to your mouth, these “aligner trays” consistently place pressure on the teeth to gradually move them through bone. They may be removed when eating, brushing, and flossing. So you can enjoy your favorite foods and maintain oral hygiene throughout treatment!
A new set of aligners is worn weekly or after around two weeks, as advised by Dr. Vardeman. Be sure to wear each aligner in the correct order because different aligners correspond with various steps in the treatment process. Periodically, Dr. Vardeman will want to check that your treatment stays on track. Our patients appreciate that this process is an attractive alternative to fixed, non-removable, silver-colored metal braces made of unwieldy brackets, wires, and bands.
- An invisible treatment – No silver “metal mouth” here!
- Comfortable – No wires or hardware that pokes at the insides of the mouth
- Easy – No adjustment period or re-learning how to eat, brush, and floss during treatment
- Pleasant – Fewer follow-up visits and less hassle as a “no-fuss” process
- Versatile – Can treat everything from minor cosmetic problems to complex bite issues
- A good value – Invisalign® is based on the same principles as conventional orthodontic treatment. So, it effectively repositions teeth without the complaints associated with traditional braces.
Total treatment time depends on factors such as the nature of your concerns and the severity of those problems.
