Invisalign, which offers "the clear alternative to braces," is a widely used product in orthodontic treatment. Below are some common questions that we hear regarding this popular system.
What is Invisalign?
Using a sequence of clear, removable aligners our patients are able to accomplish orthodontic goals without the use of braces. This is an ever-expanding technology that has brought a lot of excitement to our team and our patients.
What are the perks of Invisalign?
With Invisalign, there are no eating restrictions, and removable aligners can be taken out for an interview, presentation, or performance.
Is Invisalign an option for every patient?
While it is not the best course of treatment for ALL patients, Drs. Amley and McEntire will help you determine whether or not a portion if not all of your orthodontic care can be accomplished with this system.
What's it like having Invisalign at Amley McEntire Orthodontics?
The first step is to complete a digital scan (no "impressions") with our state of the art Itero Element Scanner. From there, the treatment plan is developed with our doctors and the Invisalign technician. We are then ready to start treatment that can be as brief as 5-6 months for limited needs.
