Invisalign is a revolutionary type of orthodontics. It is the first removable, nearly invisible, comprehensive orthodontic treatment available. Invisalign uses a very highly sophisticated technology that straightens teeth without brackets or wires. A series of clear, precisely calibrated, and customized removable aligners are used to guide teeth into their correct position. Each aligner picks up where the previous one left off. Dependent on the amount of correction needed, will determine the total number of aligners needed to complete treatment. Every two weeks, you set aside the aligners you’re currently wearing and start wearing the next in the series. They are barely visible when in place, as they are made of a clear polymer customized exactly to your teeth’s positioning. You will never have to worry about being “hidden” behind a mass of brackets and wires.
Many adults who have been unhappy with the appearance of their teeth but never wanted braces to interfere with their professional lives, are discovering that their teeth can be straightened without drawing attention to themselves.
As with all orthodontic appliances, the cost of Invisalign varies according to the complexity of the case. Give us a call and schedule a consultation.
CAD/CAM CHAIRSIDE RESTORATION SYSTEM
Our office utilizes CAD/CAM technology. CAD/CAM stands for "computer-aided design" and "computer-aided manufacturing". This technology allows the dentist to use an intra-oral scanner inside your mouth to take a digital scan of a tooth that has been prepared to receive a crown. Using special software, the data from the scan is used to generate a design (CAD) for a custom crown. This program will also generate a custom blue print and guide lines to manufacture the new crown (CAM). This software, paired with a state-of-the-art milling machine, enables our office to create precise and custom crowns, inlays and onlays in one single dental visit.
