Invisalign orthodontics is the most popular clear aligner orthodontic appliance that straightens your teeth without wires and brackets. The treatment uses a series of clear and custom appliances called aligners. The beauty of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible. In most cases, hardly anyone will know that you are wearing an orthodontic appliance to straightening your teeth.
Invisalign combines advanced 3-D computer technology with proven orthodontics techniques. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in by changing your aligners every few weeks to position your teeth to the desired site as prescribed by your orthodontist professional. Each aligner is precisely manufactured to your mouth during the different stages of treatment plan.
The first step is to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. Once Dr. Cardenas determines that Invisalign is right for you, an impression of your teeth is sent to the dental lab for production of your custom aligners. Each clear aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken removed when: eating, brushing, or flossing. Every time you replace aligner with new one, your teeth will move gradually until final positioning of teeth is attained. Results vary by patient. Results can be achieved anywhere between 6-months to 24-months.
To ensure best possible results, an orthodontic specialist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can properly diagnose and treat malocclusion using Invisalign.
