Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but traditional braces are not for everyone. The number of adults in treatment is increasing every year, but many adults want a simple, more cosmetic treatment plan. For these people, it may be time to consider Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and are a great treatment choice for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Since the aligners can be removed, eating and brushing become a cinch, making Invisalign great for people on the go!
How does it work?
During your treatment with Parrish Orthodontics, you will wear each set of aligners for about two 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 your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit our practice once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
