Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who are looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment. Instead of using brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make minor and gradual changes to the alignment of your teeth. As you change aligners (about every two weeks), your teeth move into their proper positions. Regular visits to our office ensures that your smile is progressing as outlined by your treatment plan.
Invisalign may be used to treat many of the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign® to correct:
- Crowded teeth.
- Crooked teeth.
- Gapped and spaced teeth.
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an open bite or overbite.
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign aligners. This treatment is a good choice for patients who are seeking for a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are designed and custom-made with smooth, thin plastic to fit your unique smile. The aligners are also removable, which allows you to eat, brush, and floss as normal.
Dr. Joseph Basile is an Invisalign-certified provider. The Invisalign® system is a series of clear aligners generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth.
