Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that straighten your teeth over time. Along with the aligners, we place tooth-colored “bumps” on specific teeth called attachments. These attachments help us to move teeth; they will be removed once treatment is complete. Dr. Ahl or Dr. O’Connor will determine which teeth will get attachments.
Invisalign Treatment with Drs. Ahl and O’Connor
If you’re interested in Invisalign, you’ve come to the right place! We are VIP Diamond Invisalign providers, which is the highest distinction currently available through Invisalign.
Typically, Invisalign patients are seen less frequently than braces patients (appointments occur about every 8 to 10 weeks instead of 6 to 8 weeks) and the adjustment appointments are shorter in length. Invisalign is also great for oral hygiene because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss as normal. Also, there are no food restrictions, since they are removed to eat!
On average, your treatment time with Invisalign will be exactly the same as it would be with metal or clear braces. If for some reason it would be different, we will let you know during your complimentary consultation.
