For those who want a beautiful, straight smile but do not want to wear braces, Invisalign may the the answer for you. Invisalign is a virtually invisible and very comfortable way to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign helps you achieve beautiful, straight teeth without wearing conventional braces. Invisalign doesn't use metal wires like classic braces. Instead it uses a series of clear, removable custom-made aligners to move your teeth. At less than a millimeter thick, its clear nature allows it to meld into your daily life without disturbance or social embarrassment. The aligners are removable for eating and drinking and make brushing and flossing a breeze compared to conventional braces. Because the aligners are unobstructive, Invisalign is ideally suited to adult patients whose life style or work commitments make it difficult to wear conventional braces.
Invisalign is suitable for all ages - teenages to adults.
After a consultation Dr. Babin will determine if you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign. If you are, a custom prescription for your teeth will be developed using 3D computer imaging technology. This 3D imaging allows you to preview the final position of your teeth before you even start treatment! Next custom-made aligners are created using this 3D technology. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about 2 weeks. Generally, you will visit us once every 6 weeks for progress checks. Treatment time varies depending on your particular orthodontic; generally between 3 to 18 months.
