Invisalign® Treatment from Certified Dentists
Invisalign® has quickly gained in popularity since its introduction as a nearly invisible alternative to traditional orthodontics. Through a series of customized clear aligners, patients can straighten their teeth without the need for invasive and unsightly bracket-and-wire braces. We are certified to provide Invisalign treatment and have received training in the technology and software involved in your treatment planning. Are you dissatisfied with your crooked teeth? Invisalign can effectively straighten crowded teeth, over and underbite, crossbite, open bite, and gapped teeth. Our dentists are skilled in every step of your treatment, effectively incorporating digital technology and software to virtually eliminate any room for error when creating the most ideal smile for you!
The Invisalign Treatment Process
The Invisalign process can take as little as 6 months, but most patients require more time to achieve straight teeth. For teens and adults alike, Invisalign has proven to be both effective at straightening a variety of cases and one of the best options for discreet orthodontics. Invisalign does rely on the compliance of the wearer, and we provide compliance indicators for younger patients.
We begin with a comprehensive digital scan of all your teeth, which removes the need for messy impressions.
Utilizing our software, we map out in detail how each tooth will move during treatment to achieve a straight smile.
We let you visualize what your teeth will look like once treatment is complete, making sure it aligns with your smile goals.
You will wear your custom Windham clear braces for 20-22 hours each day (except to eat, drink, and clean them), replacing them every 1-2 weeks.
Once treatment is complete, we create a customized retainer you can wear at night to ensure your smile remains straight.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics
The most notable difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is how discreet they are when on the teeth. Virtually invisible, these clear aligners are made of highly durable plastic material, eliminating the need for metal brackets and wires. Due to their customized and snug fit around the teeth, the aligners are much more comfortable, and cause little-to-no gum irritation that traditional braces do. Because the aligners are removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning, oral hygiene can be preserved as it allows patients to brush and floss like normal. Overall, Invisalign poses a beneficial alternative to patients dissatisfied with unflattering and uncomfortable traditional orthodontics.
