Invisible Way To Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces
What is Invisalign®?
* Series of clear, removable, custom-made Aligners.
* Uses no metal wires or brackets.
* Custom-made for comfort.
We will begin by examining your mouth including your teeth, jaws, jaw joints, and muscular tissues, evaluate them as a total useful unit, and determine whether Invisalign is the proper treatment path for you. Dr. Runnels will then take a 3D scan of your teeth and submit it to the Invisalign laboratories. Making use of the latest 3D digital technology, Align Technology will produce your customized aligners as instructed by Dr. Runnels. Each aligner repositions your teeth progressively millimeter by millimeter until the best outcomes have been achieved. Treatment time for a full Invisalign procedure usually lasts about 12 months. However, each situation varies.
Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign®. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.
How does Invisalign® work?
* Wear each set of Aligners for about two weeks.
* Remove only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
* Your teeth will move gradually each week.
* Visit us every 8-10 weeks.
* Total treatment time averages 6-15 months.
* Average number of Aligners is between 18 and 30.
