Benefits of Invisalign

Straight teeth promote improved oral hygiene and a more comfortable bite. Patients with crooked teeth experience higher risks of developing tooth decay, excessive tooth wear, and even tooth loss.

Invisalign is a discreet, convenient way to realign teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.   After treatment patients feel more confident and enjoy sharing their smile more often. Some patients report noticing a decrease in tension in the jaw, and improved function and comfort of their bite.

Invisalign aligners are removable and allow patients to continue their normal oral hygiene routine during treatment, daily teeth brushing and to enjoy their favorite foods. Patients who choose Invisalign to straighten their teeth experience less decay and discoloration commonly associated with metal braces.

Invisalign® What to Expect

Aligners are custom designed to correct your unique orthodontic needs. Using 3-D Invisalign digital imaging technology, Dr. Perkins will create the “blueprint” for a series of aligners. The patient wears the aligners in succession to gradually realign crooked teeth and reposition the bite.

The aligners will are fabricated at the state of the art Invisalign lab. The number of aligners in a patients series will vary depending on the degree of malocclusion or severity of their crooked teeth.

Patients wear each set of aligners in approximately 2-week increments. Teeth will begin to gradually and comfortably shift into alignment. Invisalign treatment lasts for 12 months. The exact length of treatment will be determined by Dr. Perkins and will vary depending on compliance and orthodontic concerns.
