Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners sometimes as few as 10. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
The first step of the Invisalign process is determining whether you are a good fit for the treatment. Certified by Align Technology, Dr. Creed can provide proper Invisalign diagnosis and treatment.
Once you have been approved to receive Invisalign treatment, your personal Invisalign aligners will be custom-made using advanced computer technology.
From there, each specially calibrated Invisalign aligner will be worn for two weeks. As this process continues, each time an aligner is replaced your teeth will gradually move closer and closer towards the final optimal position.
