Feel the Difference of Clear Treatment: Invisalign Clear Aligners

Many dental patients are in need of orthodontic treatment and some would rather not have to endure the possible discomfort and the obvious nature of traditional metal braces

These patients may deny themselves necessary orthodontic treatment, putting them at increased risk of developing or worsening oral health issues. Now, advancements in dental technology have given dental patients a new option for orthodontic treatment. 

If you need to correct dental misalignment, our dentists, Drs. Terence and Casey Lau offer Invisalign® Clear Aligners. 

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are orthodontic treatment appliances. Like traditional metal braces, they correct dental misalignment and straighten your teeth by exerting constant pressure over an extended amount of time.

Invisalign is also capable of fixing many of the same orthodontic issues as braces including crossbites, crowding, rotation, post-orthodontic treatment relapse, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites

What Makes Invisalign Clear Aligners Different?

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are:

    • Removable – Invisalign is simple to remove, requiring no professional help. 
    • Easy to Maintain – Your Invisalign clear aligners come off for cleaning, making it easier to maintain them.
    • Comfortable – Invisalign clear aligners are made of patented SmartTrack® material, effectively straightening your teeth without metal wires and brackets.
    • Clear – SmartTrack material is almost completely transparent, making your orthodontic treatment discreet.  
    • Quick – Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign can be completed in just twelve months, half the time of traditional metal braces.

How Does Treatment With Invisalign Clear Aligners Work? 

Consultation

Before starting treatment with Invisalign, you’ll have a consultation with one of our dentists. Dr. Lau will examine your mouth to diagnose any oral health issues, review your medical history and discuss your smile goals with you. This will allow him to determine your candidacy for Invisalign treatment. 

Designing Your Invisalign Clear Aligners

We’ll take a detailed impression of your teeth that will allow us to  design an Invisalign step-by-step guide to realignment. This guide will come in the form of a series of aligner tray sets that will be fabricated off site at a special laboratory. 

Wearing Your Invisalign Clear Aligners

You’ll wear each set in the series for a minimum of 22 hours a day, for two to four weeks each.  Be sure to remove them before eating, drinking fluids other than water and cleaning your teeth. After wearing each aligner set for the prescribed amount of time, you’ll receive a new set of aligners to guide your teeth into the next stage.

Continuing Your Invisalign Clear Aligner Treatment  

Drs. Terence and Casey Lau will have you visit our office every four to six weeks. We’ll monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment timeline. Thankfully, patients generally don’t have to adjust any part of their plan once the process has begun.
