Invisalign is a series of aligners that comfortably straighten the teeth of adults and teenagers. The aligners are customized to your mouth using advanced 3D Imaging, which ensures that each aligner fits perfectly. Only orthodontists who are trained and certified in Align Technology, like Dr. Michelle Palmer-Espanol, can properly treat patients using this technology.
This orthodontic appliance can straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. Instead, a series of aligners are used to move your teeth gradually at different stages. Approximately every two weeks you will use a new aligner that gets calibrated to your current movement stage. Invisalign is removable and should only be taken out to eat, brush and floss
There are many benefits to using this advanced aligner, including:
- Eating Any Food
- Virtually Invisible
- Smooth and Comfortable
- Normal Brushing and Flossing
- Removable Device
- Straightened Teeth
- Custom Fit
- Appointments Every 6-10 Weeks
Aligners are used to treat many orthodontic concerns, including:
- rowding: Crowding can inhibit your ability to clean your teeth properly. Orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign, can create the space your teeth need. Having your teeth spaced correctly lowers your risks of tooth decay and gum disease, allows you to chew your food properly, and improves the appearance of your smile.
- Spacing: This is the opposite of crowding. Extra spaces in between your teeth can lead to unhealthy gums and impede your ability to chew your food properly. Moving your teeth closer together will promote good periodontal and digestive health and give your smile a better appearance.
- Crossbite: A crossbite is when at least one tooth is in a reverse position and is usually caused by a misaligned jaw. It can lead to excessive wear on your teeth, gum disease, and bone loss. Fixing your crossbite with Invisalign will improve your oral health.
- Overbite: This means your upper teeth are further in front of your lower teeth than they would be in the average mouth. An overbite increases the risk of tooth injuries, causes jaw and joint issues, and affects the appearance of your smile. Correcting your overbite will give you more self-confidence and prevent unnecessary injuries.
- Underbite: This is when your lower teeth protrude farther than your upper teeth. An underbite can impede your teeth’s functionality, cause problems with your jaw and make you less confident in your smile. It is important to have your teeth realigned to improve your oral and overall health.
