What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic appliance where clear sets of invisible aligners are used to gradually move your teeth and jaws to their most natural and desired positions and make your smile beautiful. Invisalign is a revolutionary invention since there are no complications such as:

A skillful blend of cosmetic science and art helps your dentist “sculpt” or ‘design’ a smile for you.

You are a candidate for Smile Design if:
  • Visible Braces
  • Injuries to the Lips Cheeks & Gums
  • Frequent Visits to the Orthodontist to Adjust Braces
  • Frequent decay and gum issues due to lack of oral hygiene
  • Food Restrictions

Invisalign is the most trusted brand of clear aligners and we are proud to offer Invisalign® here at Apex Dental Orthodontic Center.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign braces have revolutionized the orthodontic industry. Before this, the only option for those who wanted straighter teeth was to have traditional metal braces fitted. The look and feel of metal braces, along with stories of discomfort and inconvenience, discouraged many people from seeking treatment, with many choosing instead to live with the insecurities that poorly aligned teeth can cause.

How does Invisalign work?

A 3D model of your teeth will show our experienced and friendly staff the areas they need to target and demonstrate how your smile could look after treatment with Invisalign.

A collection of custom-made aligners are created by Invisalign experts, using our scans and impressions of each patient’s mouth. Totally discreet and comfortable to wear, the unique fit will help align your teeth into the perfect position, one millimeter at a time, without the need for extractions or other surgery. Because your teeth will shift into place as treatment progresses, we will replace your braces with the next set every two weeks to continue to ensure the best fit possible for you.

Invisalign incorporates iTera, a technological software package that uses laser mapping to recreate an exact replica of your mouth and teeth. No longer do you have to endure the discomfort of having manual impressions made with awkward molds. The precise measurements of Invisalign enable your straightening trays to fit with superior comfort and accuracy throughout every fortnightly adjustment of your treatment. And from your very first appointment, the software enables you to see exactly how attractive your new smile will be.

The Invisalign aligners are designed to be worn as much as possible – at least 22 hours a day – but can also be removed when you need to, unlike traditional braces.
