Invisalign® invisible braces are thin, clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth cause teeth to shift position gradually, discreetly, and comfortably. The first step in the Invisalign® process is a consultation with Dr. Donna Grant and Dr. Maureen Winslow, during which the patient will discuss his or her treatment goals and learn whether he or she is a good candidate for Invisalign®. If so, the dentist will then take an impression of the patient's teeth, and send this mold to a specialized laboratory where a series of Invisalign® aligners will be crafted using precise computer imaging.
Patients wear each aligner for roughly two to four weeks, then move on to a slightly different aligner after that. Each successive aligner will use gentle pressure to allow teeth to gradually shift position. These aligners are created from thin, clear plastic and are all but invisible, unlike traditional braces. Also unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners can be removed for convenient eating, cleaning, brushing, and flossing, though they should be worn as much as possible, day and night.
