What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic specifically, a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack® created exclusively for Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
Our doctors will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Our doctors will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
Who is Invisalign treatment for?
Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Their innovations and technological advancements make it possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex all without interrupting your busy life. And, thanks to a discreet blue dot on the outside of teen aligners, parents can be sure their child is wearing their clear aligners enough.
Are there any restrictions on what I can eat while in treatment?
None! Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so there are no food restrictions at all with traditional wires and brackets, there is a long list of foods you unfortunately can’t enjoy because they can damage or get stuck in your braces.
You need to wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours a day to get the results you want.
How do I take Care of my Invisalign aligners?
You can brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them in lukewarm water. Never use hot water on your aligners it could permanently warp the plastic.
If you lose or break an Invisalign aligner, immediately let our doctors know. Our doctors will work with you to ensure you stay on-track with your treatment plan, which may involve wearing a previous set of aligners, your next set of aligners, or ordering replacements aligners.
All aligners and retainers must be ordered through our Invisalign doctor, as they are considered a prescription item. Please contact your doctor directly if you need to order a replacement.
