Invisalign® takes a modern approach to moving and straightening teeth. Invisalign® uses a series of aligners that were created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible BPA-free plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.
Wearing aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Gallagher has planned out. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every three weeks, until your treatment is complete to achieve the smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Comfort & Convenience
With Invisalign®, the aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they're also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever you like.
Is Invisalign® Right for You?
Invisalign® can be a successful treatment option for many types of orthodontic problems including crooked, crowded or spaced teeth. However, Invisalign® is not appropriate for every orthodontic problem. However, traditional braces may be needed to correct more significant problems such as severe crowding, significant tooth rotations, and bite discrepancies.
To be a good candidate for Invisalign®, you must be prepared to follow through on the treatment and be willing to:
- Wear your aligners throughout the day.
- Clean your teeth every time you eat.
- Attend frequent appointments (every 3-6 weeks).
