It’s true – our orthodontists have achieved the highest possible level of Invisalign case experience. We have a proven track record of successfully treating patients of all ages with this innovative, nearly invisible way to properly align your teeth and correct your bite.

You may be wondering if you are a candidate for Invisalign Teen or adult Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Parks Orthodontics can correct crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite using Invisalign techniques. The following brief overview is what you can expect during Invisalign treatment from start to finish.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using state-of-the-art technology, a series of clear, removable aligners is custom-made for you. The aligners move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Throughout your treatment, your teeth will progress along the predetermined course resulting in a beautiful smile.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

There are numerous benefits to Invisalign, but perhaps the greatest benefit is the removability. Even though you can remove your trays for special occasions, Invisalign should be worn 20-22 hours a day as directed by your doctor. Other benefits include:

  • The aligners are invisible
  • The flexibility to eat or drink the same food your friends are eating
  • The ability to clean your teeth optimally, which enhances your oral health
  • No metal brackets or wires; therefore, less irritation
  • They fit seamlessly into daily activities
  • Longer time between dental visits

What Happens After Invisalign Treatment?

Your doctor will emphasize that after completing any orthodontic treatment, wearing a retainer is imperative to prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back toward their initial position.

At Parks Orthodontics, we recommend post-treatment retainers for all of our Invisalign patients. Your custom-made retainer will help maintain the end result of your beautiful smile. The benefits of our state-of-the-art technology allow us to create a more precise and comfortably-fitting retainer for each of our patients. Retainers should be worn as consistently as possible, and as prescribed by your doctor.
