Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a 4-6 week basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign® can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Dr. Robert L. Martinich may recommend Invisalign® to correct:
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. This treatment is often a good choice for adult and teen patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign® aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush, and floss.
