Invisalign® is a new orthodontic treatment that allows you to correct your teeth without anyone else noticing. Unlike the metal wires, brackets, and bands that traditional braces require, Invisalign uses a thin, clear plastic that is nearly invisible to the eye. Even from close range, it can be hard to detect when someone is using the Invisalign system. If you have been putting off correcting your teeth because of the embarrassment and discomfort of metal braces, Invisalign is an excellent new option for you.
Dr. Janice Hall Ormsby has thorough training with the Invisalign system and can help determine whether Invisalign is the right option for you. If Invisalign is the correct treatment for your individual needs, our dentist will complete a thorough diagnostic examination of your teeth to determine a treatment plan. The Invisalign system includes a series of plastic aligners that you will wear for two weeks each before moving to the next set of aligners. Each of these sets will help to move your teeth gradually toward the desired placement and alignment.
One benefit of Invisalign is the aligners can be worn at all times except for when eating, brushing, and flossing. They are easy to remove for cleaning, so you can clean your teeth and aligners much more efficiently than is possible with traditional braces. Another benefit of Invisalign is that the system typically takes half the time of traditional braces. With Invisalign, you will have a beautiful smile before you know it.
