BRACES & INVISALIGN
The clear alternative to metal braces
Like millions of adults, you'd love nothing better than to have straighter, more beautiful teeth. Unfortunately, the thought of wearing metal braces probably doesn't bring a smile to your face. But now there's Invisalign, a revolutionary new orthodontic product that's practically invisible. And for many people, that really is something to smile about.
Invisalign is proven technology designed to give you the smile you've always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces. Invisalign works best for adults who need mild to moderate orthodontic alignment.
Invisible. Comfortable. And Removable.
To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position your doctor has prescribed for you. The average treatment time is about a year. To learn more, take a look at the video to your right.
Can it work for you?The majority of adults and teens can be treated with Invisalign. Invisalign features a number of different case studies that represent a wide variety of cases including crowding, space closure, and more. Perhaps one will help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. But the only way to know for sure is to visit Dr. Anderson & Dr. Moopen, Invisalign certified orthodontists.
Less treatment time.
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You'll see Dr. Anderson & Dr. Moopen or your regular dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you'll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by Dr. Anderson & Dr. Moopen for your course of treatment.
Clear. And comfortable.
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there's no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all - unless you tell them. They're comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.
