Patient’s Chief Concern: upper and lower jaws seemed to be misaligned. This caused him upper teeth to bite on the inside of his lower teeth, and he could tell it was causing excessive wear. His doctors told him this issue could also cause gum disease and bone loss. His Invisalign treatment lasted approximately nine months.
Patient’s Chief Concern: There wasn’t enough room within her jaw for all of his teeth to fit normally. His doctor told him that when left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, and increase in the chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth. He was treated with Invisalign over the course of approximately 10 months.
Patient’s Chief Concern: Teeth were abnormally spaced and very far apart. His doctor told him that, while this might just seem unattractive, spacing issues in teeth can also cause some periodontal diseases. His Invisalign treatment lasted approximately 10 months.
Patient’s Chief Concern: Upper teeth overlapped his lower teeth too much. Not only is this a cosmetic issue, but it can lead to health problems later in life, so he was anxious to get it fixed. He was treated with Invisalign in approximately 20 months.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position.
