Are you looking for a way to straighten your teeth without suffering through the embarrassment of wearing braces? If you find yourself hiding your smile because of crooked teeth, then Invisalign® may be the right answer for you. Dr. Foroutan offers Invisalign® treatments to help her patients boost their confidence by improving their smile.
Invisalign®: What is it?
Invisalign® is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without the use of metal braces. Using removable, clear aligners, Invisalign® gently moves teeth into proper alignment.
Over the course of your treatment, you will receive a series of Invisalign® aligners that will quickly straighten your teeth. This process can be used to improve bite issues, close gaps between the teeth, and align the teeth to form a beautiful smile.
Advantages of Invisalign®
- clear aligners that are invisible
- removable, so you can clean teeth and floss
- no wires or brackets making aligners more comfortable
- receive a series of aligners so you don’t have to come in to get wires changed every 4 weeks
- boost self confidence
How Does Invisalign® Work?
When you visit our office for an Invisalign consultation, we will gather the necessary measurements, digital x-rays, digital pictures, and dental impressions to create a 3D image of your teeth. A simulation is then generated to show how your teeth will straighten over the course of treatment.
Generally, you will wear each set of Invisalign® aligners for two weeks, and then they will be switched out for the next set of aligners. By changing the aligners every two weeks, your teeth will move at the right pace to create a beautiful smile.
Since these aligners are created in advance, there is no need for you to visit our office every two weeks. Simple wear your aligners for the two-week period of time, and then switch them out to the next set of aligners. Typically, you will need to visit our office every six weeks so that we can assess your progress, make any adjustments, and provide you with the next set of aligners to use.
