What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at our orthodontic office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
We use specialized impressions for our Invisalign patients. Your digital radiographs and clinical findings are then uploaded to the Invisalign website right away, allowing us to plan your treatment more efficiently and deliver your aligners faster.
You 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 their final positions. You’ll visit Koblan Orthodontics about once every four to six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Is it right for you?
The only way to tell if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule an exam at our East Northport office. After discussing your needs, as well as your treatment preferences, Dr. Koblan will explain your individualized treatment plan and present alternative treatment plans to accomplish the goals you wish to achieve. During the initial consultation, Dr. Koblan will also discuss what to expect with Invisalign treatment, how to wear the Invisalign aligners, how to care for the Invisalign aligners, and how to maintain your great result at the end of treatment.
