Invisalign® is the only clear alternative to old school wires and brackets, and if you are unhappy with your rotated, tipped, or crooked teeth, Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi can help.
Dr. Valcarenghi is a licensed and preferred Invisalign® provider who has the experience and the expertise to design the perfect smile using clear plastic aligner trays.
Much like those custom made bleaching trays that Dr. Valcarenghi uses to whiten your teeth, Invisalign® is a series of clear plastic aligners that are made to fit your teeth. Each aligner is designed to swap out every week or two depending on your custom made plan. Unlike conventional wires and brackets, which require multiple monthly visits for adjustments, you will only need to see Dr. Ivan every six weeks to make sure that your custom trays are moving your teeth into the desired position.
Because you remove your clear plastic aligners when you eat, drink, brush and floss, you minimize the risks that come with conventional braces. It is impossible to brush under the wires and brackets, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if you wear braces.
Conventional wires and brackets may have to be worn up to two years. The average treatment time for Invisalign® is between 12 and 18 months, with some people seeing dramatic results in as little as 6 months.
If Dr. Ivan deems you a good fit for Invisalign® pictures and impressions will be made of your teeth to help determine your overall plan. Once your aligners are ready, you will be given instructions for your customized Invisalign® plan.
Although Invisalign® isn’t for everyone, it may be right for you if your teeth are slightly:
- Have small gaps between your teeth
