Nearly Invisible Treatment with Invisalign
Because Invisalign is nearly invisible, it’s one of the most popular treatment options for both teens and adults. Many of our Tulsa patients have found that clear aligners like Invisalign are an excellent alternative to metal braces. Patients who choose Invisalign will enjoy all the same benefits as braces — with fewer dietary restrictions.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses 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 is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Invisalign works great for both kids and adults and can treat many common orthodontic issues from crowding and spacing to overbites and underbites.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are completely removable. So you can eat and drink what you want throughout treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete!
You wear each set of aligners for 1-2 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 that Dr. Carter or Dr. Higgins has prescribed.
You’ll visit Dr. Carter or Dr. Higgins about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months.
