Invisalign is the invisible alternative to traditional braces for adults and teens, and Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS has seen Invisalign transform smiles for patients of all ages. Invisalign is recommended to correct mild to moderate spacing or crowding of the teeth. Any severe misalignment may require another method, so always consult your dentist. An Invisalign treatment plan consists of a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth, and a typical treatment plan can be completed in less than a year.
To straighten your teeth with Invisalign, we begin with an examination. A dentist can determine if Invisalign will be effective in achieving the smile you want. Impressions or scans of your teeth are used to create a full set of aligners customized to your teeth and your treatment plan. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, depending on your individual treatment plan. The aligners should be worn at least 20 hours a day. You should remove the aligners to eat, and to brush and floss.
