What is Invisalign?
Invisalign offers one of the most advanced, precise and convenient options for adult and teen orthodontic treatment today, with clear aesthetic and health advantages over conventional metal braces. Invisalign can give you great results, often with fewer dental appointments and less overall treatment time, at about the same cost as traditional braces.
Invisalign straightens your teeth with custom-made aligners made of a clear, thin, medical- grade polymer that is virtually invisible when worn. Since they are removable, you can eat, brush and floss normally. Our patients really love this!
Each aligner moves your teeth little by little until you get to the end of treatment and a new beautiful smile. Since Invisalign employs very gradual movement without brackets and wires, it is a more comfortable and less painful way to move teeth than traditional braces.
A great feature of the process is the use of advanced 3D computer technology. Invisalign combines proven orthodontic science with 3D computer graphics to project teeth movement. Each one of your aligners is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them through every stage of your treatment plan. Both you and Dr. Aguebor can view your treatment plan on the computer, from beginning to end, even before you begin treatment.
Most appointments take just 15 to 30 minutes and are usually scheduled every eight to ten weeks, depending on the level of adjustment needed. Invisalign fees are comparable to traditional braces, and orthodontic insurance usually covers Invisalign to the same extent as traditional orthodontics.
The Invisalign Advantage
Invisalign gives you great results with less overall treatment time. With conventional braces, teeth are wired together, which can lead to inadvertent movement of adjoining teeth that must be corrected later in your treatment plan. Invisalign aligners are carefully calibrated to move only the teeth you want to move. This precise, targeted correction means more efficient movement, which can result in less overall treatment time. According to current research, in many cases orthodontic treatment is actually faster with Invisalign as compared to traditional orthodontics. On average, treatment with Invisalign® takes about six months to a year for adults, and about a year for teens, depending on the complexity of the case.
No wire tightening means fewer dental appointments. The wires on conventional braces usually need to be tightened every four weeks, but since the Invisalign treatment plan is mapped out from the start, we can give you several aligners at each appointment. That means for many patients, appointments need to be made only every eight to ten weeks, instead of every four weeks.
It’s easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Invisalign aligners are removed to eat, floss and brush. There are no wires to trap food and plaque, and no obstacles that make brushing and flossing difficult.
You don’t have to wait for a beautiful smile. Unlike with conventional braces, most people won’t know you’re using Invisalign unless you tell them!
