If you are avoiding orthodontics because you can’t stand the thought of wearing braces and would prefer to have crooked teeth, then Invisalign may be a clear choice for you. By choosing Invisalign there’s a solution that renders braces virtually invisible.
Invisalign aligners are comfortable, low profile, custom-made clear trays made to fit your teeth and your lifestyle and most people may not even know you are wearing them!
There are advantages of using Invisalign over traditional braces.
Appointments are only needed every eight to twelve weeks to pick up your next sets of aligners.
A bright new smile which makes a strong impression. People most likely won’t notice you wearing them unless you tell them.
Aligners can be removed to eat, drink, or to brush your teeth. Each aligner is worn for a one to two week time frame.
EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT
Remove your aligners before each meal. You do not have to worry about the hassle of food getting stuck between your brackets or breaking brackets such as with traditional braces!
Let’s face it. With school, sports, dating, and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces is not at the top of your list of favorite things to do.
Guess what? With Invisalign Teen®, you can straighten your teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the way.
You’re free to enjoy the things that make these the best times of your life.
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW
Invisalign Teen aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible! Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day. And that can make for a better social life overall.
EAT WITH FREEDOM
You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene.
KEEP DOING WHAT YOU LOVE
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet. Invisalign Teen helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen.
Technology we use
Our team uses the most state-of-the-art technology available to help create the smile you want, which is why we use the iTero™ Digital Scanner.
Using the iTero™ digital scanner, we will take three-dimensional digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. No impression trays with sticky putty needed! These images are sent directly to Invisalign, resulting in a reduction in wait time to start treatment. Not only for orthodontic treatment, iTero™ can be used for crowns, bridges, and implants.
Some benefits of iTero™ digital impressions over traditional putty impressions include:
- Accuracy: They capture the exact contours of your teeth.
- Efficiency: They require less time in the treatment chair.
- Comfort: Taking the digital images is less invasive. No putty is used, and patients are more at ease without fearing they will gag on the impression trays.
- Customizability: They provide a digital plan and allow for trays that are tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of each patient.
- Visualization: They provide each patient with a definite picture of what their teeth will look like before, during and after orthodontic treatment.
- Innovation: They use the most advanced 3-D video technologies.
The iTero utilizes laser and optical scanning to digitally capture the surfaces and contours of the teeth and gum structure in amazing detail. The images are captured by a hand-held photo wand that records 100,000 points of light, 50 microns apart, to create perfectly focused images of your teeth.
The digital impressions will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs and desires. We can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and help us keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.
