If you desire a beautifully straight smile, Invisalign® clear aligners offer an excellent alternative treatment option. Our orthodontist, Dr. Markham,  is more than happy to assess if Invisalign is the suitable choice for your needs.

What Is Invisalign?

When we mention Invisalign, we’re referring to removable, comfortable, and clear aligners designed to straighten your teeth and align your jaws. Utilizing digital imaging advancements, we create models of your current teeth and jaw positions to formulate your treatment plan. Over 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada provide this outstanding alternative to traditional braces.

Why You Would Want Invisalign Clear Aligners

Among the most sought-after benefits of Invisalign are its near invisibility and removability. This feature allows you to eat, drink, and clean your teeth without any hindrance, simply by removing the aligners as needed. Invisalign users find it easier to maintain good oral hygiene since they can brush and floss their teeth with ease. Additionally, the nearly invisible design appeals to many patients seeking a discreet solution to their orthodontic issues. Moreover, Invisalign eliminates the need for wires and additional elastics, reducing the number of components that require frequent adjustment by your orthodontist.

How Does Invisalign Work?

After receiving your initial set of aligners, you’ll wear them for a few weeks. While your treatment isn’t instant, you’ll periodically visit the office to receive new sets of aligners. Adhering to the orthodontic treatment plan diligently will lead to noticeable improvements in your smile. Your orthodontist will typically schedule appointments every six weeks to 12 weeks to monitor progress. Although Invisalign aligners are removable, wearing them for 22 hours daily ensures optimal effectiveness. Treatment durations typically range from 9 to 15 months, but this can vary significantly depending on the case.
