Invisalign is the ultimate in terms of aesthetic treatment options. We use custom molded clear trays to move your teeth to the ideal position. Because they are removable, patient compliance is extremely important with aligners. Invisalign is a terrific option for working professionals or patients seeking a discrete solution to improve their smile, however it is not ideal for every case. Dr. Poidmore and Dr. Crawford are elite providers, so he can use his expertise to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment choice for you.
How It Works
Every two weeks, you will receive a custom aligner for your teeth made using state of the art 3-D imaging technology. With each new aligner, your teeth with gradually shift into your perfect smile. This process will also require checkups every six weeks. Actual treatment time depends on your situation, but on average you will be in treatment for nine to fifteen months, wearing up to thirty different aligners.
The Invisalign system not only straightens your teeth, gradually adjusting your smile to look more beautiful with each aligner, but they are almost impossible to see to others! Patients using Invisalign remove their aligners to brush, floss, and eat, but wear them at all other times.
Your time is very important. With Invisalign, you will need fewer appointments and in general, each appointment will be shorter. On average, you will have an appointment every ten to twelve weeks, with treatment ranging from two to eighteen months. Your situation is unique, and our treatment coordinator will let you know the amount of time you can expect your treatment to last before you get started.
Unlike braces and retainers, Invisalign is wire-free, causing less pain and irritation. As a result, many of our adult patients utilize Invisalign. As an Elite Invisalign provider, Dr. Poidmore and Dr. Crawford know exactly how to design your Invisalign aligners for the best possible fit.
