Invisalign Clear Braces
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without braces by using a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. Invisalign is able to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. As you wear the series of trays over the course of your treatment, each successive tray will move your teeth closer to that beautiful smile.
Why would I want Invisalign?
Invisalign is the perfect way to straighten your teeth and provide you with that beautiful smile that you have always dreamed of. Not only will your teeth be straighter, the incidence of gum disease will decrease and it will be easier for you to brush and floss your teeth. Teeth and gums that are easy to clean will result in a healthier mouth and less plaque being accumulated.
How does Invisalign work?
After discussing your goals and concerns about your teeth, Dr. Kooner will create a treatment plan that is custom for you and a set of Invisalign aligners will be ordered.
Each set of aligners are to be worn for a minimum of 20 – 22 hours a day for approximately 2 weeks. The aligners are only to be removed while eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. Each aligner in the series will move your teeth slowly towards your ideal goal until the final position for the teeth is achieved. Every 6-7 weeks you will visit Dr. Kooner to have your teeth examined and new aligner will be given to you. The length of treatment and the number of aligners varies for each person and it depends on the severity of your case. Typical cases usually take one year to complete.
