Braces and clear aligners such as Invisalign straighten and move your teeth to improve their function and appearance. Both braces and aligners work by using pressure over time to slowly move your teeth and their roots into their correct, aligned position.
Invisalign treatment starts with a free consultation with Dr. Fulcher. He will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
One of the most important aspects of the Invisalign system is that it uses cutting-edge technology to design each aligner for each patient. The system uses 3-D modeling to create a series of aligners throughout the course of treatment to gently align your teeth.
Invisalign treatment is much more than a pretty smile. Crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, potentially causing build-up of plaque that can cause gingivitis that could lead to periodontal disease and even bone loss. Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, they allow for easier brushing and flossing.
What’s more, you can wear your aligners during social events – such as parties and dinners – without people noticing you’re wearing them. And they’re removable, which means you can eat, drink, brush, and floss without any hassle.
If you want a straight and beautiful smile without making it obvious that you are undergoing orthodontic care Invisalign might be the perfect solution for you!
Orthodontic care is not “one-size-fits-all” and treatment time will vary from patient to patient. Factors affecting treatment time include the patient’s age, the severity of the patient’s bite, individual correction needs, and patient cooperation. Every case is unique, but most cases can be completed in approximately 18-24 months.
Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Invisalign clear aligners make it possible to correct common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex – all without interrupting your busy life.
