In 3-24 months, Invisalign®’s clear aligners will efficiently and effectively straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, these aligners are clear, removable, comfortable, durable, and barely noticeable.
Not sure if Invisalign® is right for your orthodontic needs? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.
How Old Do You have to Be to Use Invisalign®?
We treat patients ages 12 and up for Invisalign®.
How Long Does the Invisalign® Treatment Take?
This ultimately depends on the patient. However, typical treatments last between 3 to 24 months. During your first appointment, we’ll be able to give you a better estimate of what your treatment time will be.
Can I Eat With Invisalign® Trays?
No. Patients must commit to wearing aligners 20-22 hours per day. That means you only have a few hours collectively each day to do all the eating and drinking (other than water).
Our Invisalign® Process
We pride ourselves on our implant treatment plan, which includes extensive photography before the procedure to get the coloration, shapes, and other details of your teeth matched for the best final result. Before the procedure, we take photographs of every angle of your teeth to determine the best fit. After Dr. Z makes a plan with Invisalign® for how and when your teeth will move, we’ll create a temporary model so that you can see how your smile will look. You can trust that your goals will be met from initial consultation to the final result with the Invisalign® process. When choosing Invisalign® to straighten your teeth, you can expect the following six-month process:
Get mouth cleaned and free of disease
Take comprehensive photography and determine goals
Manufacture Invisalign® aligners
Place "attachments" and perform individualized tooth slenderizing
Change aligners once per week and visit Dr. Z every 4-8 weeks
Remove attachments and perform any post ortho treatment desired
