What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the latest development in orthodontic treatment. 3D computer technology is used to fabricate custom made clear aligners that are used to straighten your smile. The removable aligners are replaced every two weeks with a new set to shift your teeth into a better alignment. Brushing and flossing, as well as visits to the hygienist are much easier and quicker with the removable aligners. Invisalign is also much more comfortable then traditional braces because no metal wires are required.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can treat many dental conditions:

Your Invisalign Treatment

Dr. Dounski will speak to you during an orthodontic consultation to gather information about the results you want to see with Invisalign. Impressions, digital photos and x rays will be taken and sent to Invisalign for evaluation and treatment presentation. After the evaluation, a 3D model of your “before and after” smile will be presented to you on our computer along with the length of treatment and cost. Since every smile is unique, length and treatment vary with every patient. After case acceptance, the customized aligners will be fabricated and you will be on your way to a straighter and healthier smile.

FAQ

Q. How long is the Invisalign treatment?

A. Each Invisalign treatment varies depending on the patient’s case. Cases that require minor restoration can take as little as six months while extensive treatment can take twelve to eighteen months and require further refinement. The length of the case is determined by Invisalign and can not be altered by the doctor.

Q. Will the aligners be visible?

A. The aligners are clear which makes them virtually undetectable to others. You will be able to smile throughout your treatment without worrying about unsightly brackets and wires.

Q. Are the aligners uncomfortable?

A. The aligners are made out of smooth, plastic like material that mimics the contours of your teeth. There are no sharp metal edges like with traditional braces.
