You may have needed braces for years but have not been in the position to address the issue. Perhaps our dentist or team have noticed that you have alignment issues affecting your smile, or maybe you have just decided that it is time for an improvement. For adults and older, active teens, Dr. Brian Han may suggest using the Invisalign® clear aligner system to improve your bite.
First, Dr. Han will take digital impressions of your bite, which will be used to create your aligners.
When they are ready, you will wear each set for approximately two weeks before switching to the next set. Your teeth will slowly be moved horizontally and vertically and even rotated until they reach their optimum positions. At the end of your treatment, Dr. Han will give you a retainer to wear to ensure that your teeth stay in their new homes.
Invisalign aligners are easy to clean and can be removed for meals, which means that you do not need to follow the dietary restrictions that come with traditional braces. They are very comfortable, but their most impressive feature is that they are made of clear acrylic and fit snugly against your teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable to others.
