Invisalign clear aligners are a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile confidently both during treatment and after. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign treatment gradually moves your teeth toward the smile you’ve always wanted. And, almost no one will know your wearing them unless you tell them.
Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods and you can brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Invisalign can treat many common conditions like crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, deep bite and open bites. The results are comparable to the results with more traditional appliances but they are much more suited to compliment your lifestyle.
With over 20 years of clinical research, more than 700 patents, and more than 4 million cases started, you can be confident that your smile is in good hands with Invisalign.Contact us to learn more
The question we get most often is “What is the right age for my child to visit the orthodontist?”
Even if your child still has baby teeth, they should be seen by the orthodontist by age 7. The orthodontist will not necessarily recommend treatment at that age, but enough permanent teeth have arrived for orthodontists to evaluate how the teeth and jaws meet, and to identify current or developing problems. If a problem is detected, the orthodontist and parents can discuss when treatment may be necessary. Sometimes an orthodontist recommends treatment in younger patients when appropriate or may defer treatment until the patient is older if the problem is minor.
Typically, an Early Treatment (Phase 1) will be short and address a specific problem. Then, once treatment is completed, your child will be monitored by the orthodontist until they are ready for comprehensive treatment (Phase 2). Often times, patients that require a phase 1 treatment will need a comprehensive treatment (phase 2) at an older age.Contact us to learn more
