Invisalign® Treatment

What are Invisalign aligners?

  • It is an invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces—no one knows it but you (and us!)
  • It uses a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners; this makes them much more convenient to wear compared to traditional braces.
  • It does not require the use of metal wires or brackets—no need to worry about scraping and discomfort.

Invisalign aligners are custom made, clear aligners designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position as prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your teeth at each stage of the treatment plan. After a 3-D scan of your teeth and a precise treatment prescription by your orthodontist, Invisalign creates a sequence of finely calibrated aligners for you. Each aligner is worn for about one or two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually, week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Your orthodontist will closely monitor the treatment progress to ensure that the results are ideal.

Why is Invisalign Virtual Care great?

  • Convenience and flexibility: there are fewer in-person visits leaving which means less time in the car and more time for the things you love
  • Communication: patients and parents love the fact that they can communicate with the doctor more frequently; this is especially helpful if they have questions about care or are worried about teen compliance
  • Stay connected in the safety of your own home

Braces

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and each contain a detailed prescription for your teeth. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than previous models. Your orthodontist will make adjustments to the braces or wires at your appointments to achieve the ideal result. Orthoworks also offers clear ceramic, gold, and lingual braces (braces fixed to the backside of teeth).

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. Ceramic braces are ideal for any patients who prefer braces except with a little more subtlety. Like traditional metal braces, the prescription is inherent within each brace and will require adjustments by your orthodontist to attain the ideal result.

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that you first see an orthodontist at the age of seven. Chances are that treatment may not be needed so early, but it does allow any issues to be noticed and closely monitored until the ideal moment for beginning treatment arrives. An early evaluation can allow your orthodontist to detect any issues before they become problematic, increase the effectiveness of treatment and possibly prevent more serious orthodontic problems later in life. Some of the benefits of early interceptive (also known as Phase I) orthodontics include:

  • Making space for crowded teeth
  • Lowering the possibility of tooth trauma
  • Preserving space for emerging teeth

Teen + Adult Treatment

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy. Orthodontic treatment as a teenager or as an adult can improve the overall health of your teeth and gums by making it easier to clean and floss your teeth as well as provide a stable bite. It can also dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Spaced out teeth, crowded teeth or bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain, among other factors.
