Dr. Noemi Cruz-Orcutt may recommend Invisalign® to improve the position of your misaligned teeth to assist with oral hygiene care, appearance, and prior to restorative treatment.
The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. This technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little.
Invisalign aligners are clear, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable so you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. We will see you periodically for a short visit to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. Financing options are available. Speak with your insurance company to see if a portion of your Invisalign treatment may be covered. A complimentary consultation with your doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
