Straighten Your Teeth Without Anyone Noticing
Invisalign® can give beautiful straight teeth – without braces. Dr. Frank has the expertise to help you get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign.
The Invisalign® Clear Aligner System
Invisalign is our most popular alternative to traditional braces. It allows us to give you the same beautiful results without the brackets, metal, and wires.
Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made plastic aligners to straighten your smile. We create these removable aligners by making a precise 3D image of the teeth using X-rays and digital impressions.
Although the aligners themselves look like simple plastic trays, they're constructed of a special thermoplastic resin that’s strong enough to move your teeth into alignment.
When you wear them as directed, Invisalign clear aligners have proven to be just as effective as traditional braces when it comes to treating common dental issues.
Benefits of Invisalign
The most obvious benefit for our adult patients is their invisibility. While Invisalign isn’t invisible, being able to complete orthodontic treatment discretely is important to many of the Invisalign patients we treat.
You’ll remove your Invisalign aligners every time you eat or drink anything other than water. Since you don’t have to worry about staying away from certain foods, you have more freedom as you work towards a straighter smile.
You'll also remove your Invisalign aligners before you brush and floss, so it takes very little effort to keep your teeth free of harmful bacteria and plaque.
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic material and are custom-designed to fit comfortably over your teeth. Because the aligners must be worn 20-22 hours a day to be effective, this is especially important.
Fewer Office Visits
Your life can sometimes feel like one meeting, school event, or sports practice after another, and orthodontist appointments are just one more thing to pencil in. Because there are typically no adjustments with Invisalign aligners, your checkups won’t be quite as frequent and they don’t last as long.
As long as you’re switching out your aligners on time, your teeth-straightening should stay on track without too much extra time spent in our office.
See If Invisalign's Right for You
The Invisalign clear aligner system is designed to be used by our teen and adult patients who are dealing with mild to moderate cases of common orthodontic issues. Although most of these issues can be successfully treated with Invisalign, there are some severe or complex cases that may require more precise tooth control than a removable aligner can offer.
After your free consult with Bluebird Orthodontics, Dr. Frank will be able to determine if Invisalign would be a good fit for your specific orthodontic needs.
