Crooked teeth, unevenly spaced teeth, and problematic bites don’t have to run your life, and metal braces don’t have to be the answer. To give you flexibility and a better smile, Tower Dental Associates offers Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® in-house to better serve you and your smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses clear aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike regular metal braces, the aligners are removable and virtually unnoticeable. Because the aligners remove easily, people with Invisalign can eat and drink like they would without Invisalign. Oral hygiene is also easy with Invisalign — with no metal brackets to work around, brushing and flossing teeth remains easy.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign uses a series of aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Each set of aligners last for about two weeks, coming out only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. At the end of two weeks, a new set of aligners replaces the old, and teeth slowly move until they have straightened to their final position.
The Patient Experience
Initially, patients come to the office for a consultation, and Tower Dental Associates works with Invisalign to create a unique treatment plan. Invisalign receives 3D scans of the teeth, and from there, aligners are created and shipped.The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
You will have check-ins with our staff every six weeks so that we can ensure that your teeth are shifting properly. At your check-ins you’ll receive your new sets of aligners that set you up for incremental progress.
