We know many people are apprehensive about having their teeth straightened because of the treatment time. Those people will be excited to know that wearing Invisalign invisible aligners, you can have a straightened smile in only 9 - 15 months for most cases. These innovative, clear aligners correct problems of gapped teeth, overbite, crossbite, overcrowding, and underbite. This system employs 3-D computer imaging to devise a treatment plan starting with your teeth's current position all the way through to your final new smile. Sets of thermoplastic aligners fit over your teeth while gently and gradually moving them into position. Every two weeks you switch aligners as progress is made. Dr. Hagen will evaluate your Invisalign progress about every month or two. The total treatment time depends on your specific needs and goals.
Invisalign has distinct advantages over traditional metal braces. As they are almost invisible, no one even knows you are straightening your teeth. They are hardly detectable even up close, so you feel more confident while smiling during treatment. Because there are no metal braces, wires, or headgear, there is no mouth irritation. There are also fewer trips back to the dentist for progress evaluation.
One great advantage with Invisalign is that you may eat and drink whatever you want. These aligners can be easily removed for proper cleaning of your teeth, so you don't have any eating limitations. You wear them during the day and at night; you simply remove and re-insert them for brushing or flossing.
