Invisalign® Invisible Aligner Therapy
We offer Invisalign® invisible aligner therapy to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligners that are changed out approximately every two weeks to gently and gradually reposition teeth. The aligner trays are comfortable for the sensitive tissues of your gums and cheeks, and they can even be easily removed so you can eat your favorite foods and brush your teeth as you normally would.
Invisalign aligners are made from a transparent plastic material so they’re hardly noticeable! In fact, the aligners are so undetectable that many people might not even know you’re wearing them. If you’ve been putting off straightening your teeth because you haven’t wanted to wear traditional metal braces for two to three years, then we’ve got a clear solution for you!
We now have the technology to use a computer to take a scan of your entire mouth that we use to submit your Invisalign case. This scan replaces the unpleasant traditional impressions. This scan is quick, more accurate, and more detailed making your Invisalign experience fun and pleasant!
How Does Invisalign Work?
During your first Invisalign visit, Dr. Covatto will take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth which will then be turned into digital 3D images. From the images, Dr. Covatto will come up with your unique and precise treatment plan. Based on this plan, your customized aligners are created! From then on, your treatment is easy: just wear the aligners every day until your treatment is complete. And feel free to pop off the trays when you eat your favorite foods or brush and floss your teeth. While every aligner therapy case is unique, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults and two years for teenagers.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
There are other orthodontic options on the market, but if Dr. Covatto determines you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you can feel confident you’ve made a great choice for your smile. Invisalign offers a level of comfort and convenience you can’t get with traditional braces.
|Invisalign Invisible Braces||Traditional Metal Braces|
|Your aligners are barely noticeable to others.||You will have brackets glued to your teeth and wires tightened about every 6–8 weeks.|
|Clear aligners are made out of smooth and comfortable plastic.||The wires can poke and irritate your gums and cheeks.|
|Removable aligners allow you to brush your teeth with no interference.||You will need to take extra care to brush between your brackets and floss between the wires.|
|You can eat whatever you want during your treatment!||You will have to stop eating several foods (caramel, apples, popcorn, gum, etc.).|
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
