Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth, placing gentle pressure on them to straighten them. Each set of custom-made aligners is worn for 1-2 weeks. Then you get a new set to advance your treatment. This way, your teeth are slowly moved into the correct positions. Aligners are available for teens and adults.
What dental issues can Invisalign treat?
- Invisalign can treat many of the same dental issues as traditional metal braces, including:
- Crooked teeth
- To close an existing space or gap between teeth
- Open bites
If the team determines you’re a candidate for Invisalign, 3-D images of your teeth are created with the iTero® digital scanning system to customize your treatment plan. The team determines how long your Invisalign treatment will last and shows you images of what your teeth will look like when treatment has completed.
