Invisalign®

A more commonly occurring problem that dentists worldwide are witnessing is misaligned teeth. Recent reports indicate that 90% of people have some form of crooked or shifted teeth. Luckily, not all cases require braces. Now, there are clear aligners for those seeking a lower-profile treatment solution!

In our office, you'll resolve comfortable, compassionate, and personalized care. We make each clear aligner digitally so they’re form-fitting–allowing for the ultimate wearing experience. Not to mention, each Invisalign® aligner is transparent, making clear braces the prime choice for minorly maloccluded teeth.

What is Invisalign?

These are clear series of aligners, much like retainersm that will correct your teeth positioning over time. They use grooves that are slightly straighter than your teeth to apply corrective pressure. This replaces the need for metal wires while achieving the same goal.

Before we can craft your perfectly fitted aligners, we'll need to scan your mouth. At Dee for Dentist, we use the iTero Element® to gather a crystal-clear 3D rendering to create your aligners.

You'll wear each aligner for one or two weeks before swapping it for the next in the series. While you won't completely cut out follow-up visits, the progress check-ins are a lot less frequent.

The only time these should be out of your mouth is while you eat. The goal is to have them in for 22 hours a day to achieve optimal results as quickly as possible. This means that you can continue to snack on your favorite crunchy, sticky, and chewy foods.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

The length of the treatment depends on the condition that affects you. For common misalignments, patients are over treat after a year or 18 months. Invisalign can correct the following health concerns:

  • Overbite and underbite
  • Crowding teeth
  • Crossbite and open bite

Our office can trim down that time further to provide a better dental experience. Our team of specialists often treats patients for six months to resolve the issue in its entirety.
