Invisalign: The Clear Alternative to Metal Braces
There are several oral malformations treated via re-alignment. This can be achieved either by attaching braces or plastic aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. Invisalign moves your teeth into alignment in phases until each tooth is in its ideal position. Unlike braces, these clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and brush your teeth without restrictions.
Invisalign takes less treatment time than traditional braces. An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year, as little as half the time needed for braces. You’ll see Dr. Erickson and Dr. Krehbiel every 4 to 6 weeks for adjustments and to check your progress. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the alignment process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you and determined in advance by Dr. Erickson and Dr. Krehbiel for your personalized course of treatment.
Invisalign is clear and comfortable. Because Invisalign is almost invisible, there’s no unwanted attention to your mouth. Very few people will notice at all — unless you decide to tell them. The aligners are comfortable to wear and easy to remove when you eat, brush, and floss. Made with a special soft plastic, they’re specifically designed not to rub against your cheeks. All across the country, people like you are enjoying great smiles and straighter teeth thanks to Invisalign.
