INVISALIGN® treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovative, industry changing technology. Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss. And as if it couldn’t get any better, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods!
How does INVISALIGN® work?
In just Three Easy Steps you will be on the way to your Brand New Smile!
Step 1 Meet with our dentist for an Invisalign consultation at No Cost to You! At this appointment, Dr. Garrett will take several digital photos to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. When the results are in, we will map out and review with you your customized treatment plan.
Step 2 Start transforming your smile from your first fitting. When you pick up your first set of aligners the doctor will examine your smile and ensure your clear aligners fit well, let you know next steps and schedule your follow up appointments. Wear your aligners as instructed for fast and best results.
Step 3 Now that you have transformed your smile with the world’s most advanced clear aligner system, you will be fitted for a Vivera Retainer. Vivera Retainers are custom made and 30% stronger than other retainers. Worn properly and as instructed you will keep your smile the way you want it for the long term.
Is INVISALIGN® Right For you?
From simple shifting of teeth to more complex cases, we will find a solution for you. If you suffer from any of the issues below you may be a good candidate for Invisalign:
Overbite: An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap your lower front teeth. Too large of an overbite can cause problems such as unnatural wearing of your teeth and pain in your jaw.
Underbite: An underbite is when your lower teeth are in front of your upper teeth when closing your mouth. An underbite can make it difficult to chew properly and speak clearly. You may also experience premature wearing of the teeth.
Crossbite: When closing your mouth some of your upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth. Crossbites tend to wear your teeth down or cause the enamel of your teeth to chip. It may also cause premature gum recession.
Gap Teeth: Do you have extra space between your teeth or areas where food commonly is trapped? This is typically referred to as space issues or gap teeth. When food gets stuck in these areas it can make your gums tender and sore potentially leading to gum disease.
Crowded Teeth: Overcrowding is typically caused because of a smaller jaw or not having enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally. As a result your teeth will bunch up, overlap and in some cases twist. Crowding of your teeth can cause difficulty brushing and flossing causing plaques, tarter and harmful bacteria to build up leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Mix of Baby Teeth and Permanent Teeth (Phase 1 Orthodontia): As children grow, their smile grows with them. Even if your child still has baby teeth it may be the perfect time for them to begin Phase 1 Treatment. The age group for this treatment is typically ages 6 to 10 years of age and the investment long term is worth it.
