Invisalign/Clear Aligners

Invisalign is becoming more and more popular amongst teens and adults as an alternative to braces. Read our brief guide to Invisalign below to learn more!

How does invisalign work?

Some people might wonder, “Can plastic really move my teeth?” It’s a great question, and the answer is YES! The technology behind Invisalign has evolved so much in the last few years, some patients even finish treatment faster with Invisalign.

At your first visit, your orthodontist will take a 3D scan of your teeth – this is like a detailed map of the current “terrain.” From there, we will create a customized plan to shift your teeth into the right spots using a series of clear aligners. These aligners can be sent to your home and are exchanged every few weeks.

In addition to your at home treatment, you will have office checkups every 6-8 weeks to ensure your teeth are moving in the right direction. Depending on the severity of your crowding or spacing, clear aligner treatment usually takes about 12 to 18 months.

Can Invisalign fix overbites or underbites?

Another question we get often is, “Can Invisalign fix my bite problem?” The answer again is, yes! Using small knobs on the side of your aligners, elastics can be secured to help your jaw move at the same time your teeth are aligning.
