Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces
the invisalign difference
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of metal wires, brackets and rubber bands, it uses a series of hard plastic aligners, which are similar to a night guard or a retainer. These aligners are built to gently shift the position of the teeth, and are worn for 20-22+ hours per day. They are removed only to eat, brush, and floss. With traditional braces, plaque can build up easily as they are quite hard to clean. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, it is much easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Plus, they are nearly invisible when worn, so no one will be able to tell you are straightening your teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign Process
After you’re approved for Invisalign, Dr. Will will take impressions of your teeth. Then, he will send them to Invisalign, and work with them to design your smile correction plan. Your first sets of aligners will arrive at The Burkitt Center in about 3-4 weeks. You’ll wear each set of aligners for 20-22+ hours per day, and switch to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks. You will also come into our office for a quick oral exam and to get your next several sets of aligners every 4-6 weeks. Most patients require 20-24 sets of aligners to correct their smile, so the average treatment time is about one year.
