Rather than using metal brackets and wires to shift teeth into their ideal position over the course of 18 to 24 months, Invisalign allows us to move teeth with gentle, cosmetically superior alignment trays. These clear, plastic aligners are virtually invisible to the untrained observer, and because they’re removable, you won’t need to change your diet or oral hygiene routine during treatment. Each alignment tray represents a step closer to your ideal alignment. Worn for about two weeks at a time, these aligners move your smile into this new position. Then, you simply switch to the next set in the series to continue progressing toward your ideal smile alignment.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Shorter treatment time – the entire Invisalign process is typically completed in ten to twelve months compared with two or more years for traditional orthodontics. Additionally, you’ll need to visit our office every six to eight weeks for short progress checks compared with the more frequent, lengthier orthodontic visits necessary to adjust brackets and wires.
- Clear, cosmetic appearance – unlike the noticeable metal brackets and wires, you’ll just snap these clear aligners over your teeth, and no one but you and Dr. Livshin will ever know you’re completing orthodontic treatment.
- The comfortable and convenient solution – no need to adjust your oral hygiene routine or change your diet. Instead, these comfortable, removable aligners allow you to maintain your regular routines throughout treatment for optimal comfort and convenience.
Six Month Smiles
In addition to Invisalign, we also offer the Six Month Smiles accelerated orthodontic system. Using clear and tooth colored brackets and wires, we’re able to move teeth into their ideal alignment in just about six months. This is possible because the treatment focuses on just those teeth that are visible when patients smile, allowing us to quickly and comfortably giving you a smile that makes you look and feel your very best.
