Invisalign® clear braces are an inconspicuous way to straighten or align your teeth without using metal braces. The process consists of employing a series of custom-fabricated, virtually invisible aligners. Invisalign was first proven in clinical studies and, according to Wikipedia, has been used by more than 700,000 patients worldwide as of April, 2008. Invisalign patients generally benefit from less tooth decay because unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out while you are eating and you can also brush and floss normally. If your teeth are misaligned, crowded, or gapped please contact our office.
Upon our initial examination, Dr. Schultz will discuss whether Invisalign® is the best option for you. He will create a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which is submitted to Invisalign®. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® carefully translates Dr. Schultz instructions into a series of precisely customized Aligners. You then wear each set of Aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually – week by week, millimeter by milimeter – until the intended result: straighter teeth. Generally, you visit Dr. Schultz no more often than you would with braces and the length of treatment is about the same.
