Invisalign® is Clearly Different
We offer many different types of braces so that our patients can get the type of treatment they want. For our Adult and Teen patients concerned with the cosmetic appearance of braces, we offer Invisalign®, an effective alternative to clunky metal braces that are virtually unnoticeable. No wires or brackets are necessary during treatment, and the Invisalign® Aligners are removable. Treatment times vary between six and eighteen months, and orthodontist visits are recommended every 8 to 10 weeks during this treatment period.
Benefits of Invisalign ® Aligners for Teens & Adults
Dr. Lewis or Dr. Mansour will determine if Invisalign® is the right solution for you during your first consultation. The process for treatment with Invisalign® begins with a set of custom made aligners to be worn for two weeks. Gradual movement of teeth will occur during the process, and every 8 to 10 weeks, you will receive a new aligner with new settings to further progress the movement of your teeth until the desired outcome is achieved – a bright and beatiful smile!
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Types of Problems Invisalign® Can Help Correct
Though Invisalign® is not meant for all patients and cannot treat certain occlusions and problems, it is very effective at straightening crooked teeth, protruding teeth, and common bite problems.
The following problems can be remedied with the use of Invisalign® Aligners:
- Crowded Teeth
- Spaced Teeth
- Protruding Teeth
