Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that improves the alignment of your teeth and bite with a series of clear, plastic aligners that fit comfortably and discreetly over your teeth.
Invisalign has become a popular orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces. Over six million people worldwide have chosen Invisalign to improve their smiles.
Invisalign corrects many of the same conditions as traditional metal braces, including:
The first step in your Invisalign journey is to take an impression of your current bite and alignment. Dr. Cranon then uploads this impression to a computer, where it becomes a virtual model of your teeth. He manipulates this model to map out all of the necessary steps your teeth need to reach their target alignment.
Each of those steps is then turned into a set of clear plastic aligners that fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. Once in place, your aligners exert a small but constant amount of pressure that gradually and gently guide your teeth into their target alignment.
You wear your aligners all day, every day, and take them out only to brush, floss, or eat. You move on to your next set of aligners every two weeks until you eventually reach a perfectly straight and beautiful smile.
Invisalign offers a variety of improvements over traditional metal braces. Unlike braces, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are:
Your aligners are made out of smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic, so they won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks.
Your aligners are removable, so you don’t need to learn any new techniques to keep your teeth clean during treatment, and you don’t need to restrict your diet. Simply take out your aligners to eat, brush, and floss like normal, and put them back on your smile.
Your aligners are virtually invisible so you won’t have to worry about the mouthful-of-metal look that you get with braces.
