Both Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™ use clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Treatment with Invisalign® takes about the same treatment time as treatment with traditional metal braces. However there are many benefits to treatment with Invisalign®. Many of our adult patients enjoy being treated with this tooth straightening system because it allows patients to have their teeth straightened without anyone even knowing it. This is because the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. Patients are able to attend school, work, and social situations without needing to be embarrassed by wearing wires and brackets on their teeth while they are having their teeth straightened. Our Eastpointe dentist will need to examine your particular bite situation to determine whether or not Invisalign® will work well for you. We are also happy to be able to offer teens treatment with Invisalign Teen™. This tooth straightening system is made specifically for teens and offers many different ways to improve compliance as well as allow for teeth that have yet to erupt. Additional benefits of treatment with Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™ is that our patients are able to eat just about anything they want during the entire treatment process. This is because the clear plastic aligners are removed during eating. An individualized set of aligners will contain anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners based on the smile problem that is being corrected. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and slowly moves teeth into position for the next aligner, until the last aligner is worn.
