Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without wearing conventional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable custom-made aligners to move your teeth. Because you remove your aligners before you eat and drink, 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. Dobee develops a custom prescription for your mouth, Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to design the complete treatment plan. This 3-D imaging allows you to preview the final positioning of your teeth before you even start treatment. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about 2 weeks. Typically, you will visit us once every 6 weeks for progress reports. Not every situation can be treated with Invisalign, so call or e-mail us for a free evaluation to see if you can be helped with this new technology.
