Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Most people associate braces with metal wires, brackets, and rubber bands. Thanks to major advancements in orthodontic technology, metal braces have largely become a thing of the past. Dr. Carey Tri has helped numerous patients enhance their smiles with Invisalign, the clear and convenient way to get straighter teeth. Invisalign is used to treat a broad range of cases, and does much more than just straighten teeth. It can be used to:

  • Fix crowded teeth

  • Close gaps between teeth

  • Improve overall bite

  • Re-treat orthodontic relapse

How it Works

Invisalign uses custom-designed trays that are both removable and transparent. Over time, the aligners gradually move your teeth until they are perfectly straight, giving you the beautiful smile you have always wanted.

At your first appointment, Dr. Tri will examine your teeth and discuss what you want your target smile to look like. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, the next step is to take x-rays, impressions, and digital images of your teeth. These are then sent to the lab, where your custom trays are created.

Each aligner is worn approximately two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the desired results are achieved. Every month or two, Dr. Tri will evaluate your progress and provide you with new trays. Treatment time averages a year for most patients, which is significantly shorter than traditional braces.

The Benefits are Clear

With Invisalign, there is no need to hide your smile while you straighten your teeth. The aligners are comfortable and are virtually invisible, so most people will never know you are straightening your teeth. Ideally, the trays should be worn 20-22 hours a day. However, Invisalign gives you the freedom to eat and drink what you want by simply removing the aligners. This also allows you to practice good oral hygiene and brush and floss as you normally would.

Thanks to Invisalign, over 1.5 million patients have straighter teeth and can now smile with confidence. If you want to learn more about how Invisalign can transform your smile, call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tri.
