If you are looking for an alternative to braces, you may want to consider Invisalign® clear aligners. A series of clear trays will gradually straighten your teeth and improve your smile while being nearly invisible. This technology can correct crowded teeth, gaps and other orthodontic conditions.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a process of straightening your teeth using clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into the proper position. These clear plastic trays are custom fit to your teeth utilizing high-tech, digital processes. Unlike traditional braces, there are no food restrictions, bulky brackets or painful adjustments. There are specific Invisalign products for teens and adults.

Newest Digital Imagery

iTero

The new iTero digital scanner was developed by the makers of Invisalign. Instead of having messy impressions taken of your teeth, your dentist can now take digital, 3D images that are used to create more accurate aligners. Your provider can use the iTero scanner at each appointment to create a new 3D image and effectively track your progress. This tool can also show you the expected results of your Invisalign teeth straightening.

Treatable Conditions

Most patients are surprised to learn just how many conditions Invisalign is capable of treating. These nearly invisible trays can be used to correct minor crooked teeth and overcrowding, gapped teeth, and over-, under-, and crossbites. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for Invisalign is to schedule a consultation with Precision Digital Dentistry.

What To Expect

When you meet with your dentist to discuss Invisalign, they will perform an oral exam and take a 3D scan of your teeth with the iTero Element scanner. Once they have a better idea of your needs, they will let you know long the process should take and show you a predicted outcome of the results. Next, you will be given your first clear aligner and instructions on wearing and caring for it. Every few weeks, you will meet with your dentist for an evaluation of your progress and to receive the next aligner.
