What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable teeth aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. These series of aligners take your teeth from their current position to their final desired alignment which is determined by Dr. Rahimi, one step at a time.
Why Would I Want Invisalign®?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem (to see how to brush and flosses with braces, check our brushing and flossing page out) , as the aligners are removable. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You wear each set of teeth aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. Successful treatment requires compliance with following these simple guidelines. You’ll visit Fusion Orthodontics and Children’s Dentistry about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
