Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. You can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brushing and flossing are not a problem. With no metal, they are comfortable and require less time in the office getting adjustments.
With this technology, you can view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions. An office visit is necessary only about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30.
Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful, straight teeth you've always wanted - without metal braces, and the ability to smile more during treatment as well as after! A complimentary consultation with Dr. Dobbs can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
