Invisalign: Short-Term Orthodontics for Adults

  • What Is Invisalign? Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment that will straighten all your teeth without metal brackets or wires. Instead of metal braces, Invisalign uses smooth, clear custom-fit dental aligners made of plastic, kind of like athletic mouthguards.
  • How Does Invisalign Work? We’ll give you a series of aligners designed to move your teeth gradually. Each aligner set is worn for at least 20 hours per day. Every two weeks, you move to the next aligner set in the series. Every six weeks, you come back to Aberdeen Smiles so that we can address your progress and issue more aligners if necessary.
  • How Long Does Invisalign Take? With our oversight and care, we can straighten your teeth in as little as 12 months using Invisalign. That’s about half the time of traditional braces!

What Goes on During Your First Orthodontic Appointment?

We will take X-rays and impressions and examine your teeth just like at your routine dental exam. We will go over the current state of your teeth and, if you’re a good candidate for orthodontics, get you started on the path to a straighter smile as quickly as possible.

What Are Space Maintainers?

Space maintainers keep spots open in your mouth or your child’s mouth. This might be to let another tooth come into the spot properly if a baby tooth was lost too soon, or to keep the area open until you can get a restoration placed. They can even help reduce the need for braces for young children.
