Williamsburg Dental is proud to offer Invisalign™ , a nearly invisible teeth straightening system that eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires.
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, plastic “aligners” that fit over the teeth, much like a thin, tightly-fitted mouth guard. Every two weeks or so, the patient “steps up” to a new set of aligners (one for the upper teeth and one for the lower) which will slowly, millimeter by millimeter, move the teeth into the desired position. The treatment period can be as little as 9 months or could be 18 months or longer for more serious cases. But patients typically have much less concern about the length of time that they are in Invisalign because the aligners are comfortable and virtually invisible on the teeth.
If you want to straighten your teeth without announcing to the world you’re in the process, this procedure is for you. Invisalign is:
- Invisible, so no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. You can feel comfortable smiling during treatment as well as after.
- Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem.
- Comfortable, because there are no metal wire or brackets to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. That also means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.
