What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system is a virtually invisible approach to achieving your desired smile. It utilizes advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create a personalized treatment plan. Custom-made clear aligners are then created for your teeth, gradually moving them into their desired position. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before transitioning to the next in the series until your teeth reach their final position.

The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend on your specific needs, as determined by Dr. Harmon.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment offers several advantages:

  • Clear and Seamless: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, blending seamlessly with your lifestyle and interactions with others.
  • Removable Convenience: Unlike braces, you can remove your aligners to eat and drink your favorite foods. Additionally, you can maintain your regular oral hygiene routine by easily removing the aligners for brushing and flossing.
  • Comfortable Experience: Invisalign aligners are free of metal brackets and wires, minimizing discomfort and mouth irritation. You’ll also spend less time in the doctor’s chair and have fewer scheduled appointments.
  • Virtual Results: Invisalign technology allows you to preview your treatment plan and see the expected outcome before starting your treatment.
