Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that is highly popular with adults and older teens. Unlike braces which require visible metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently move your teeth into their ideal position.
Dr. Chélise Kasun offers free Invisalign consultations. If she determines Invisalign can meet your needs, she will customize your treatment plan with the iTero digital impression system. iTero takes a digital scan of your teeth and bite, allowing Dr. Kasun to provide Invisalign with the most accurate view of your malocclusion. This process is often more comfortable than traditional, goopy impressions, and may help ensure your aligners are best suited to address your specific concerns.
Invisalign offers a number of benefits for adults and older teens when compared to traditional braces. These include:
- No dietary restrictions
- No interference with dental hygiene vistis
- Plastic aligners will not cut gums or lips, or irritate other oral tissue
- Virtually undetectable treatment
- Faster treatment period
After the jaw has completely hardened, moving teeth with braces can be both a painful and lengthy process. Many adults find that wire and bracket braces are unsightly as well. Invisalign addresses all of these issues by using a series of clear aligners that can often correct even severe malocclusion in as little as 12 months.
While fast treatment requires that you wear your aligners at all times, exceptions are made for eating and homecare. The ability to remove your aligners for these tasks eliminates the dietary restrictions put in place during typical orthodontic treatment and allows you to keep your teeth healthy and bright, even during your treatment phase.
The many benefits of Invisalign make them the ideal choice for many of our patients. During your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Kasun will examine your teeth and jaw, answer any Invisalign questions you may have, and help you determine if this is the best solution for you.
