Invisalign is a nearly invisible option for orthodontic care
Invisalign is one of the best and most popular clear braces options for orthodontic care. It’s an excellent alternative to metal braces for many of our patients and has all the same benefits.
Dr. Larson is an Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and Spark Clear Aligners provider. While Invisalign or Spark is a great option for most patients, it might not be the right fit for your treatment plan. You will need a consultation with Dr. Larson to determine what’s best for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen use a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. Simply put, Invisalign Teen is Invisalign for teenagers.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are not a problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
You wear each set of aligners for 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 Dr. Larson has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Larson about once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
