Invisalign

When you're ready for that sensational smile which will totally transform your appearance, Invisalign is the answer. Simply, one of the best ways to straighten your smile without interference in your day-to-day life or busy schedule. With this effective precision teeth alignment system, consider it the only option that can give you such amazing results!! Invisalign uses the state of art technology, and all alignments are straightforward, simple and stress-free.

How does Invisalign work?

Starting with your initial consultation, the dentists at Smile Design Studio use Invisalign technology to create 3-D view of your teeth. These computer generated images project a virtual treatment plan, showing the number of alignments necessary to straighten your teeth. The Invisalign brace is comprised of a durable medical grade plastic. It is designed to move teeth incrementally through each phase of the teeth realignment treatment.

The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, with each aligner progressively moving your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position, until you have a more beautiful smile. The total number of clear aligners is specific to your smile and determined by our dentists.

Invisalign can visibly improve the smiles of people with crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, teeth that are spaced too far apart. It is leading the way in orthodontics for a more effective, safe way to restore the symmetry of your teeth.


How long does Invisalign take to correct and straighten my teeth?

Depending on the results of your Invisalign consultation, you will wear a series of aligners for different time spans. Aligners are worn in a series of 10-15 days or until it is time for a new aligner. Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. An Invisalign course of treatment can take anywhere from 2 - 24 months.

Is Invisalign painful?

Although slight discomfort is not unusual with the Invisalign treatment, some patients describe the sensation as a temporary pressure. With each new stage, moderate aches indicate that Invisalign is doing its job and aligning your teeth into a perfect smile.

How do I care for my teeth with Invisalign?

Take an active role in your teeth realignment. In order to ensure the best results, the Invisalign treatment asks each patient to do the following:

  • Daily wear aligners
  • Never chew gum while with your aligners in place
  • To avoid aligner discoloration, do not smoke
  • Always remove aligners before eating food or drinking beverages
  • After every meal, prior to reinsertion of aligner, brush and floss your teeth

Invisalign vs. Metal Braces

Metal braces were once the only treatment used to straighten teeth. Until Now!!
Invisalign® uses groundbreaking orthodontics technology to enhance your smile while correcting the flaws that nature never intended.

Compared with traditional metal and wire braces, Invisalign offers many advantages:

Almost Invisible

Most dental patients prefer Invisalign to traditional braces for several reasons. Invisalign is transparent, made of durable medical grade plastic and not as obvious as metal braces. Drs. Wright, and Willis at the Smile Design Studio, will custom fit a series of clear aligners to reposition your teeth. The almost invisible aligners are molded to gradually straighten your teeth into a beautiful smile.

Better Oral Hygiene

Invisalign
Both these people are straightening their teeth.
The one one the right is using invisalign.

Keeping your teeth free of plaque, particles and tooth decay is quite easy with Invisalign.Unlike metal braces, your food is most likely to become trapped in the bands. With Invisalign® is not made of any metal. The custom molded aligners are removable and simplify oral hygiene. Invisalign at the Smile Design Studio offers straighter teeth and:

  • Prevents periodontal disease
  • Eliminates plaque buildup
  • Reduces tooth decay

There's no need to worry about triggering other dental problems. Metal braces have a reputation for intensifying TMJ, promoting other chewing difficulties and speech impediments. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign technology does not aggravate other dental complications. With traditional braces, certain foods are restricted; however, the Invisalign technology lets you eat whatever you please. More importantly, the Invisalign technology does not disrupt your life.

Comfortable and Secure

Compared to metal braces, the underlying benefit of Invisalign is the comfort level. Completely wire-, rubber band- and metal—free, patients experience less dental irritation and require fewer adjustments or dental appointments.
