Invisalign is a discreet, pain-free way to move your teeth into better alignment using a series of custom-designed, nearly invisible aligner trays that fit directly over your teeth. Invisalign is made of patented SmartTrack® materials that move your teeth by a fraction of a millimeter at a time until they reach their desired positions.
If you’re embarrassed by your smile, or if your dentist tells you that you have malocclusion (a dysfunctional bite), you may benefit from Invisalign. The aligner trays gradually correct alignment problems such as:
The East Village Dental Center Invisalign experts resolve complex alignment issues with the use of clear SmartForce® attachments.
Your Invisalign correction begins with a digital scan of your teeth. Your dentist sends those images to the Invisalign lab and also uses them to plot the correction of your teeth. The lab uses this information to create a series of graduated aligner trays that gently nudge your teeth into the desired position over time.
You wear the Invisalign trays for at least 20-22 hours per day. You remove them for eating and cleaning, but must wear them while you sleep.
Every 1-3 weeks, you switch to a new aligner tray. The Invisalign Teen® system features a blue compliance dot on the trays, so you know when to change them. You come back to East Village Dental Center periodically so your dentist can verify that your teeth are responding to treatment.
Most women, men, and teens need between 10-40 aligners. The average treatment time is about 18 months.
Invisalign is a precise system that requires training to administer. The dentists at East Village Dental Center have undergone intense training and certification so that they can realign your teeth beautifully and functionally with Invisalign.
