Invisalign

   
  What is Invisalign®?
  Invisalign® is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of custom made clear removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.
 
 
  Does Invisalign® really work?
  Yes. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign® has been proven effective at straightening teeth.
 
 
  How does Invisalign® work?
  Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made "Aligners" are produced. Each "Aligner" moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
 
 
  What are the primary benefits of Invisalign®?
  There are four primary benefits of Invisalign®:
1. Invisalign® is nearly invisible - you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
2. Invisalign® is removable - you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
3. Invisalign® is comfortable - there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation; no metal or wires also means you spend less time in the doctor's chair getting adjustments.
4. Invisalign® allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start - so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
 
 
  What are aligners made of?
  Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
 
 
  What do aligners look like?
  Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as "contact lenses for teeth."
 
 
 
  Overly crowded teeth
 
invisalignThis occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.
 
  Widely spaced teeth
 
invisalignThis occurs with abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this issue can also be caused by the other teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases.
 
  Crossbite
 
invisalignThis occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
 
  Overbite
 
invisalignWhat people commonly refer to as an "overbite" is known to dental professionals as "overjet." It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It's typically caused by either genetics, bad oral habits, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
 
  Underbite
 
invisalignA underbite also referred to as a type of malocclusion is a dental condition when the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. It usually is caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, both, or by missing upper teeth. Underbites can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molar. This can lead to tooth wear causing painful jaw and joint problems.
