The Newest and Proven Alternative to BracesInvisalign is designed to straighten and align your teeth in a discreet and more convenient way. There are no brackets or wires that can poke and irritate your mouth, or distract from the beauty of your smile. Invisalign is a smooth, easily removable plastic aligner. It is easy to clean and allows you to eat whatever you want!
How it works:
1. We Create a 3-D Image of Your Teeth
Dr. Mirzaeian will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images Dr. Mirzaeian will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth. Using this same technology, Dr. Mirzaeian will even be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.
2. Receive Your Custom Aligners Based On Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
3. Wear a New Aligner Every Two Weeks
Approximately every two weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with Dr. Mirzaeian usually only every six weeks or so. At every stage, you will be able to see how much closer you are to having the smile that reflects the real you. While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of braces, but since your teeth won’t be covered by wires and brackets, you’ll be able to see improvement much sooner. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment.
