Invisalign is an almost invisable option to straighten your teeth without wearing conventional wire and metal braces. It uses a series of clear, removable custom-made aligners to move your teeth. Because you remove the aligners before eating and drinking, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing. This technology is also more comfortable, avoiding the mouth abrasions that can be caused by the metal and wires of conventional braces. And this technology is also more convenient, since you are likely to spend less time in our office getting adjustments.
Once Dr. Hanswirth develops a custom prescription for your mouth, Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to design the complete treatment plan, from the initial teeth positioning to the desired final positioning. Custom made aligners are created based on the imaging information. Each of these aligners moves teeth incrementally and is worn about two weeks. Typically, you will visit our office once every 6 weeks for progress reports.
