Orthodontists are finding new uses for Invisalign technology. At the same time, patients are spreading the word about the simplicity and comfort of this orthodontic solution. Understandably, addressing orthodontic concerns becomes more appealing with the elimination of metal brackets and wires.

Your orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct your overbite. These clear, customized aligners might also be the solution for your crossbite, crowded, gapped teeth and crooked teeth. Using patented Invisalign technology, your teeth will be gently guided into the proper position according to your individualized treatment plan.

Beginning with an orthodontic consultation, your orthodontist will gather the necessary diagnostic information. Dental x-rays and impressions of your teeth will be forwarded to the Invisalign headquarters where your treatment plan will be developed. State of the art digital imaging will be used to illustrate each phase of your treatment as well as predict the estimated treatment time.

Once your treatment has been planned and the outcome predicted, your orthodontist will review and discuss the details with you. At this point, prior to any movement of the teeth, you will have an amazingly accurate outline of your proposed treatment. With the ability to view computer-generated three-dimensional digital images of your teeth, you can visualize the proposed outcome of your treatment.

Upon your approval, your case will be processed and you can begin the active phase of treatment. As you begin wearing your customized aligners, you will soon notice that a new smile begins to emerge. Your overbite will fade away as your teeth will be steadily guided into the most ideal position.

In recent years, an increasing number of patients have turned to Invisalign technology to address their orthodontic concerns. Compared to traditional braces, the ability to improve your smile with a more comfortable and discreet treatment is especially attractive for teens and adults.
