What is Invisalign?
For patients looking to achieve a beautiful smile with an invisible option, we would suggest Invisalign. With Invisalign there are no wires or brackets to deal with.
This system allows the teeth to be gently aligned over time using a series of aligners (all of them invisible!) which when worn in series will gradually correct your teeth into their final position.
The system is completely clear so people won’t even know you are wearing them. The aligners are also removable allowing you to eat whatever you wish and also making oral hygiene easier to deal with.
Over the life of your case, you’ll visit our office every 8-12 weeks to make sure everything is progressing properly.
3D Scanning with iTero
We offer iTero 3D imaging at our office which allows our patients to have their entire treatment plan processed and visualized in 3D space in just one visit. Patients love this system as we don’t have to subject them to taking multiple impressions of their teeth with goopy impression making materials.
3D scanning is also much more accurate than impressions. This allows for better fitting of the custom manufactured aligners which ultimately contributes to a superior, more predictable result for the patient.
iTero digital scanning is a “MUST” when treating with Invisalign.
There is an emerging school of technology to help reduce treatment times. We offer AcceleDent, that uses SoftPulse technology (massaging), & OrthoPulse, that uses PhotoBioModulation (light Energy), to stimulate bone and tooth movement.
Both are lightweight, simple to use, hands free devices. AcceleDent is used 20 minutes per day and allows you to change your trays every 7 days instead of every 14 days. OrthoPulse is used 10 minutes per day, 5 minutes each arch, and allows you to change your trays 2 times a week instead of every 14 days.
