Invisalign, the CLEAR choice for braces

Invisalign Dr Saarman dds marin CountyInvisalign is the latest advance in adult orthodontics.  It is a natural outgrowth of the digital revolution sweeping through dentistry.  It uses a digital scan of the teeth to create a virtual model that can be used to diagnose orthodontic treatment, and then generate a sequence of invisible trays that are worn over your teeth to move them in sequence to a new preplanned relationship.  It is great for correcting crowded and crooked teeth.

Invisalign is replacing conventional orthodontics for many adults, and more all the time.  I like to use it to move teeth and achieve a better bite relationship, or make cleaning and maintaining your teeth easier and more efficient to prevent gum disease.

It is very useful in addressing cosmetic as well as functional issues. For some people it is the ultimate conservative solution to tooth and gum problems. Moving teeth can provide a better platform to start more extensive smile restoration, or just to look better.

The Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Wilsey’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Wilsey has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Dr. Wilsey about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
