What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a very innovative way to straighten teeth and improve smiles, without the use of traditional metal braces. The process consists of a series of clear aligners that are designed to move teeth into their desired position gradually, step by step. As an Invisalign patient, you are given a series of removable, translucent aligners that fit directly over your teeth. You will wear the first set of aligners for about two weeks and then move onto the next set in the series and continue doing so until your treatment is complete.
Each set of Invisalign aligners are custom-made just for you using advanced, 3D computer graphic technology. Because the aligners are clear, you are able to very discreetly improve your smile. In fact, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing the aligners as they’re nearly invisible. These aligners are also very easy to install. It is a very simple process that is done at our office and only takes about an hour to bond the Invisalign buttons or fasteners with an adhesive to your teeth that will keep your aligners in place safely and securely. At the end of your treatment, the attachments will be polished off without any damage to the enamel. Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is that there are only a few buttons that are required whereas brackets are adhered to all of your teeth for metal braces. And, because the aligners are removable, they are designed to be taken out before eating. This means there are no food restrictions to concern yourself with as opposed to when regular metal braces are worn. Plus, you take the aligners out when you brush and floss your teeth to ensure that you’ll maintain good oral hygiene for the entire time you are in treatment. Also, you will be taught how to properly clean and care for your Invisalign aligners before leaving Dr. Rosen’s office.
What separates the Invisalign services that you offer from other orthodontic offices?
Invisalign is continuously making updates and refining their product so that you can receive the most maximal correction with comfort and ease. Dr. Rosen is always keeping up to date with Invisalign’s innovations and is one of the first offices to implement the newest model of Invisalign’s iTero Intraoral Scannner. This means that our patients will be able to receive direct feedback from Invisalign and see a preview of their corrected bite. We understand that although not everyone may be the best candidate for Invisalign; however, this new technology allows us to better help our patients in selecting the most effective and desirable treatment plan on a case by case basis. This technology is not yet available to all orthodontic offices and not all offices will choose to utilize these new capabilities! Dr. Rosen prides herself in making sure that you receive the top, most individualized care possible!
