WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
December 27, 2018
Invisalign uses a series of clear, specially designed aligners to straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, the aligners can be removed to eat, brush, and floss.Invisalign is particularly effective in correcting minor orthodontic irregularities and orthodontic relapse from not wearing retainers. For effective tooth movement the aligners must be worn 23 hours each day.
HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH INVISALIGN?
At your initial consultation, Dr. Nosratian will discuss the option of Invisalign based on your unique orthodontic needs and treatment goals. If you are a candidate for Invisalign we will start the process by creating 3-D models of your teeth. Dr. Nosratian will then align your bite digitally using Invisalign computerized software. Once Dr. Nosratian has determined your ideal tooth position, a series of aligners are created using CAD-CAM technology at the Invisalign lab. At your following appointment we will bond any attachments, if needed, and you will begin wearing your aligners. As you change to a new set of aligners about every week, your teeth will move gradually until they reach their final positions. You can expect to visit our office about once every six to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
