Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gently shift teeth into the desired position, correcting a wide range of dental issues. This innovative solution offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces, making it a popular choice among both adults and teens.

Indications for Invisalign include:

  1. Crowded or crooked teeth
  2. Gaps between teeth
  3. Overbites, underbites, and crossbites
  4. Relapse after previous orthodontic treatment

While Invisalign can be done purely for cosmetic reasons, changing the alignment of the teeth can also help improve oral health by altering the bite or making teeth easier to clean. The Invisalign process begins with a thorough consultation, during which Dr. Triplett will evaluate your teeth and discuss your treatment goals. If Invisalign is deemed suitable for your case, digital impressions will be taken to create a customized treatment plan, including a series of clear aligners designed specifically for your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series.

The virtually invisible aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks or gums. They can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making oral hygiene maintenance much simpler compared to traditional braces. Treatment duration varies, but most patients achieve their desired results within 6 to 18 months.
