What Invisalign Treats

Invisalign is designed to correct a variety of dental concerns, including crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and more, offering a versatile solution for many orthodontic needs. While some complex cases may require traditional braces, a complimentary consultation with Dr. Igel and Dr. Chartrand can determine the best treatment for your unique smile.

Getting Started with Invisalign

The journey begins with a detailed examination and digital scans of your teeth using cutting-edge iTero® technology. This allows for the creation of a customized treatment plan tailored to move your teeth into their perfect positions. Invisalign aligners are then custom-made to fit your teeth snugly, guiding them gently and efficiently towards the desired alignment.

The Treatment Process

Invisalign aligners are worn for about one week at a time, gradually shifting your teeth into place. Regular check-ins every 2 to 3 months ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. While the initial series of aligners typically achieves significant improvement, refinements with additional aligners might be necessary to perfect your smile.

Invisalign Benefits and Care

Invisalign offers the flexibility to eat and drink whatever you like, coupled with the ease of maintaining excellent oral hygiene. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for special occasions, making it an ideal choice for both teenagers and adults seeking a discreet orthodontic solution. Attachments may be added to certain teeth to enhance the aligners’ effectiveness, ensuring your teeth move according to the treatment plan. Success with Invisalign heavily relies on wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours daily and following the guidance provided by Dr. Igel and Dr. Chartrand for optimal results.
