Takes a modern approach to straightening your teeth using a series of custom-made aligners created for you and you only.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen use a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners that elicit gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into their ideal locations. It’s a modern approach to tooth straightening for patients in St. Paul, Eagan, Apple Valley and Rosemount, Minneapolis who are looking for something as effective as braces, but more aesthetically pleasing.
How Invisalign and Invisalign Teen Work
Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® use a series of aligners that are individually crafted for each patient. It is a modern approach to straightening teeth with aligners that are comfortable and almost completely invisible. You simply place the smooth aligners over your teeth, and they work to gradually and gently guide your teeth into their ideal locations, all based on a treatment plan created by your orthodontist. Orthodontists can calculate the precise movements your teeth need to make to create a perfectly beautiful and ideally functioning smile, based on Invisalign’s unique 3D imaging software. Patients love it because there are no brackets or wires to tighten or irritate the mouth – straightening your teeth is as simple as popping in a new set of aligners every two weeks. Because the aligners are removable, there is little interference in your daily life. And because they are virtually invisible, people won’t even know you’re in orthodontic treatment.
The Initial Assessment
The whole Invisalign and Invisalign Teen process starts with a quick and easy smile assessment. During this consultation, an orthodontist will meet with you to examine your smile and answer any questions that you might have. This consultation is free and lasts only a few minutes. By the end of the appointment, you will know if you are a viable candidate for Invisalign or Invisalign Teen.
A Personalized Treatment Plan
If you are deemed to be a good candidate for treatment, an orthodontist will begin by mapping out a detailed treatment plan with your specific smile goals in mind. An orthodontist can show you a digital 3D representation of how your teeth will move during treatment, allowing you to see first-hand how your smile will progress while wearing Invisalign or Invisalign Teen.
