What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an effective solution for minor orthodontic problems (such as crookedness, crowding, and gaps between the teeth). The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic trays, or aligners, similar to teeth whitening trays. The aligners are custom-crafted by specially trained Invisalign® technicians, who use advanced computer technology to map out the patient’s entire treatment from start to finish. The imaging software depicts the teeth’s final position, and each set of aligners is crafted to move the teeth closer to that position.
Benefits of Invisalign®
We have found that numerous benefits of Invisalign® attract patients seeking to straighten their teeth. Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible – so inconspicuous that people are unlikely to notice that you are wearing them. They are also removable, so you can still enjoy all your favorite foods and brush and floss with ease. The aligners are custom-crafted and they fit comfortably, causing little disruption to the patient’s everyday life. The results produced by Invisalign® become especially striking when patients undergo treatment in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as teeth whitening, for a total smile makeover. To learn more about the benefits of Invisalign®, schedule a consultation at our conveniently located Morristown office.
The Invisalign® Process
The Invisalign® process begins with a complimentary consultation in which our cosmetic dentist will determine whether Invisalign® is an appropriate treatment for you. If it is, you will return to our office to be fitted for your first set of aligners. At this appointment, we will take pictures and molds of your teeth and mouth, which we will send to the Invisalign® laboratory. There, technicians will use the molds to plan your treatment and craft your first set of aligners, which they will send to our office. You will return to our office to pick up the aligners. Simply wear the aligners at all times, day and night, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Your next set of aligners and each successive one will be shipped directly to your residence. You will change out the aligners as they arrive. Patients typically visit our office in Morristown for checkups approximately every six weeks. Invisalign® patients who wear their aligners as directed may finish treatment in as little as 18 months.
