Invisalign® Invisible Braces
At Norwood Dental, we use Invisalign clear braces to provide a straightening solution that is an alternative to traditional braces. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign allows you to enjoy a beautiful smile while enhancing your oral health.
As a certified Minnesota Invisalign invisible braces provider, Norwood Dental offers you high-quality care combined with time efficient visits as we aim to enhance your unique and confident smile with Invisalign aligners.
Benefits of Invisalign Invisible Braces
Invisalign invisible braces are carefully designed with smooth edges to ensure that your gums and cheeks will not get snagged or irritated by metal wires and brackets.
Invisalign clear braces offer an accommodating solution that adapts to your lifestyle. Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign clear braces may be removed to allow for eating, drinking, flossing, brushing, or even an occasional special event. As a family friendly Norwood practice, we understand the need for flexibility as you incorporate dental care into your busy lifestyle.
While most traditional braces take 18-24 months, Invisalign invisible braces generally take less than a year, although this may vary depending on your specific needs. Without wires to tighten and adjustments to make, you will not have to spend as much time for office visits either.
Customized For You
After taking digital images of your teeth, we will custom design Invisalign aligners for your mouth with a personalized step-by-step movement plan tailored to your situation.
No need to worry about hiding your smile while wearing clear braces. Invisalign allows your natural teeth to show through the transparent aligners, making it difficult for others to detect that you are wearing them.
You can feel secure choosing Invisalign clear braces because you will see the projected results even before starting the alignment process. After taking impressions of your teeth, we use the latest technology to create a digital image of each stage of the straightening process so you can see your new smile before treatments begin.
What Is The Invisalign Process?
At this first visit, Dr. Dan Ross or Dr. Brandon Bussler will assess your situation and goals to determine whether Invisalign is the best option for you. If so, we will take digital photographs and x-rays of your teeth to help us map out your Invisalign treatment plan.
Customized Treatment Plan
Using 3-D digital images of your mouth, Dr. Dan Ross or Dr. Brandon Bussler will plan the stages of your tooth movement and to custom design a series of aligners that will straighten your teeth by degrees. He will show you a virtual image of the results you can expect, and then assist you in reaching that outcome.
You will switch your Invisalign aligner about every two weeks for a new aligner that is molded specifically to shift your teeth to the next mapped out location. The number of aligners will vary depending on your situation, however the average treatment generally involves 20-30 aligners per arch. Periodically you will come in to receive the next set of aligners and to mark your progress towards achieving the smile you have always wanted.
