How Invisalign Works
With the state of the art iTero scanning technology, Dr. Davis can create an accurate 3D image of your teeth in just minutes. A series of custom clear aligner trays are then fabricated to fit over your teeth. You start with the first set, and then, after a certain number of weeks, move to the next set in the series. Over time, the clear aligners apply pressure to your teeth and move them into their correct positions for a straighter, healthier smile. To work properly, the aligners should be in place 20-22 hours every day. They may be taken off when you are eating or drinking.
Invisalign works for people with the following conditions:
- some overbite, underbite, and crossbite issues
- crowded teeth
- gap teeth
- open bite
- misaligned teeth
At A Touch of Art Dental Studio, we will always discuss your options and how effectively the various treatments will work. More severe bite issues may require traditional braces instead of clear aligners.
