What Is Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign treatment uses clear plastic braces to realign your smile gradually and discreetly. Each tray is custom-made in a high-tech lab to fit comfortably and securely onto your teeth and can be easily removed, so you won't have any significant dietary or life alterations.

Treatment time may vary but usually ranges from 12-18 months. You will need to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day to see optimal results, which is why we recommend this treatment for adults and responsible teens who can properly follow the guidelines.

Can Invisalign Aligners Straighten My Teeth?

Invisalign clear braces are a popular treatment in modern orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry to effectively treat mild to moderate dental alignment issues. Dr. Theisen will evaluate your bite to determine if you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. You should consider this treatment if you're looking for a reliable and convenient solution to fix:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding
  • Unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite

Our Treatment Process Tailored to Your Unique Smile

Our dental team will start the process with a thorough exam to ensure Invisalign clear braces are the prudent and healthy choice for your oral situation. We feature a technologically advanced office that utilizes iTero® scanners to take detailed digital impressions of the nuances of your smile. This helps us design your invisible aligners before sending the images to an outside trusted dental lab for the customization process.

Once your aligners have arrived, we'll welcome you back to our office, carefully secure your first tray, and perform any adjustments to make sure you're comfortable. We will clearly explain the process and provide tips on how to care for your aligners. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks before graduating to the next set in the series. Our dentist will invite you back for occasional visits so we can monitor your progress and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Caring for Your Invisalign Aligners

Taking care of your clear aligners is a fairly simple and intuitive process. You must remove your Invisalign trays whenever you eat or drink anything other than water. Make sure to brush your teeth after eating to avoid trapping food in the tray, as it could affect the color and odor of your aligners.

Remember to rinse your aligners before placing them back onto your teeth, and brush the plastic tray at least once a day using a soft toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap to avoid scratching or staining the plastic.

When you remove your trays, keep them in a case to avoid them getting lost or accidentally thrown away. If you do lose your teeth aligners, continue to wear your previous set and contact our dentist so we can provide a replacement for you.

Protect Your Results with Vivera® Retainers

When you reach the end of treatment, you'll require a retainer to preserve the alignment as your new bite stabilizes. We offer Vivera retainers, which comfortably protect your smile. They are made from the same material and design as the Invisalign tray to ensure a smooth transition into finishing the treatment process using the retainer.
