Invisalign Braces allows you to straighten your teeth in the most discreet way possible. It utilizes a clear plastic appliance, as oppose to the white porcelain of clear braces, that is virtually invisible. It makes Invisalign the ideal choice for teens and adults who want to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile, without worrying about their appearance.

INVISALIGN  BRACES  OVERVIEW

Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.

Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.

When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.

Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place

HOW INVISALIGN BRACES WORK

From consultation to confident new smile, you’ll know what to expect every step of the way.

TREATMENT PROCESS

1. Your first consultation

Choosing Invisalign treatment is an important dental and financial decision, so it’s essential that you review all options with Dr. Brooke.

At your initial consultation, Dr. Brooke will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.

2. Your custom treatment plan

Dr. Brooke will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth.

Then, Dr. Brooke will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.

 

3. Your Invisalign clear aligners

Your custom-made aligners will be made of our proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss.

4. Your progress

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Dr. Brooke may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so. At every stage you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.

5. Taking care of your new smile

When your treatment is complete, ask Dr. Brooke about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.

LIVING WITH INVISALIGN BRACES

One of the best things about Invisalign® treatment is the minimal impact it has on your everyday life. Since the aligners are so comfortable, you should be able to wear them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day without much effort. Here are some comments from people going through treatment:

Maintain Oral Hygiene

The aligners are easily removable, so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Cleaning your aligners is just as easy with the Invisalign cleaning kit. Or you can simply brush and rinse them in lukewarm water. That's it! Achieving that great smile couldn't be easier!

Eating

You'll also remove the aligners each time you eat. This means you can continue to eat all the foods you love without any restrictions or worrying about food getting stuck in your wires and brackets. With other teeth-straightening methods, the simple act of eating can often be troublesome.

Playing Sports

For those who are active in contact sports, Invisalign clear aligners let you play without the worry of sharp brackets cutting your mouth. If your sport requires wearing a protective mouthguard, simply remove your aligners and you're good to go!

Easy Cleaning

Your bedtime routine can continue as before, with the simple addition of cleaning your aligners. You won't be struggling with trying to floss and brush in between brackets and wires, which can be time-consuming.
