What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance system that uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to move teeth so that no one can tell you're wearing them. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your orthodontist’s office getting adjustments. Because Dr. Carroll and Dr. Sutton plan every tooth movement before starting your treatment, you are able to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

Impressions are taken of your teeth and scanned into digital models. Dr. Carroll or Dr. Sutton then completes your virtual treatment plan and have your aligners made. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions. You will visit us about once every six to twelve weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months but will vary from case to case.
