Another popular cosmetic desire for patients is straighter teeth. To help patients straighten their teeth easily, Dr. Condie offers the convenience of Invisalign Invisible braces.
Invisalign braces is a relatively new convenient, and nearly invisible way to straighten teeth without use of metal bands/brackets/wires!!
By using a series of clear removable aligners to move the teeth in proper alignment, Invisalign is able to achieve straightened teeth. These clear aligners are made from impression taken from the mouth, and scanned into a computer.
Dr. Condie and Invisalign Corporation use their expertise to show a 3-D computer image of what the final outcome would look like, even before the patient gets started. From the 3-D image, those clear aligners are made and the patient can get started.
The patient wears each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. As the aligner is replaced with the next series, the teeth will move little by little, week-by-week, until they have straightened to the final position decided upon initially.
Total treatment time on an average is 9-15 months and the average number of aligners used during the treatment are between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
The advantages of Invisalign clear braces are many, but the three most popular are that they are Invisible Braces, Removable Braces, and Comfortable Braces. Many patients choose this new modern way of straightening teeth over the old fashioned braces.
