Invisalign® braces, or clear aligners, are great for people who do not have severe orthodontic problems but want an easy solution for straightening their teeth without the embarrassment of traditional metal braces . The Invisalign® system consists of strong plastic trays that are custom molded for you and are virtually invisible. The doctors at Olympia Fields Dental Associates are trained and certified as Preferred Providers by Align Technologies, the makers of Invisalign®. Please call today to schedule a free Orthodontic consultation to determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
Is Invisalign® right for you? Invisalign® can treat many types of teeth alignment issues:
Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made through a combination of all of our doctors’ years of expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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 the final position your doctor has prescribed.You’ll follow up with a visit to your doctor about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
