What Is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced iTero ® impressionless 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan. Dr. Chung or Dr. Epshteyn will use the iTero scan to plot every step from the initial position to the final desired state. No more goopy impressions!
Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by one of our orthodontists based on your specific needs. As Invisalign providers, Dr. Chung and Dr. Epshteyn have the distinct pleasure of being Platinum Plus Invisalign Providers. This means that our team has seen a wide variety of orthodontic cases and our experience benefits you by providing you with the best, most effective treatment.
What Are the Primary Benefits of Invisalign?
- Comfort & Convenience – Invisalign aligners are clear, which makes Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth.
- Overall Less Treatment Time – You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the typical number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. With Invisalign, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Additionally, treatment time for Invisalign can be decreased by up to 50% when paired with AcceleDent®. Simply use this cutting-edge device for 20 minutes a day to speed up tooth movement and achieve your perfect smile in a fraction of the time! Ask for more details at your free consultation.
- Advanced Technology – Invisalign uses the latest technology beginning with our iTero impressionless scanner which takes high-quality digital images of your teeth. No more goopy impressions! Invisalign’s technology also allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
