Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment.In fact, virtually no one will know youre wearing them unless you tell.By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move- little by little- toward the smile you have always wanted.
Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it doesnt require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is only about a year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods while brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices worldwide, Invisalign has been effective at straightening teeth. Nine out of ten patients are very or extremely satisfied with their Invisalign experience. However, for treatment to work, the patient must be compliant in wearing the aligners.
How does Invisalign work?
The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Greenberg’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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 the final position Dr. Greenberg has prescribed.
You’ll visit Dr. Greenberg about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Compliance is the key to success of an Invisalign case. The aligners must be worn 24/7 except to eat, drink, brush and floss. If aligners are not worn, treatment does not progress.
