What is Invisalign?
Dr. Jamil Alkhoury describes Invisalign as "invisible braces." This treatment eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires over the teeth, and instead uses transparent plastic aligner trays. Patients wear these trays at least 20 hours a day to gently reposition the teeth. An entire series of trays are custom-made using digitized impressions of the teeth and the patients work their way through the series to achieve the desired results.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The best patients for Invisalign are children, teenagers, or adults who want a discreet method of treatment for mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth.
Does Invisalign fix gaps?
Yes! Invisalign can be used when teeth are separated and need to be brought together to close a gap, typically on the anterior teeth. This provides a more streamlined appearance to the smile, and improves self-confidence for many of our patients who have been embarrassed by these types of imperfections.
What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
For many of our patients, Invisalign orthodontics is the "clear choice" for them! We encourage patients to book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation to determine their candidacy for treatment, and discuss this or other alternatives available. We can provide referrals to trustworthy orthodontists in the area for patients with severe malocclusion.
