If you’ve been contemplating orthodontic treatment for quite some time, then you may have heard of Invisalign. Invisalign includes a system of clear aligners that works to gradually straighten out your smile with barely noticeable aligners in the mouth.
While this treatment has many obvious benefits, you may still have some questions. Our team has years of experience successfully treating thousands of Invisalign cases, so you can trust you are in good hands with Dr. Santucci and his team.
What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign refers to a collective series of plastic aligners that work to straighten teeth gradually. An Invisalign aligner is barely noticeable to many, making it the perfect treatment option for patients looking to discreetly straighten their smiles.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many advantages that more and more patients are starting to look for in their orthodontic treatment. For one, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable. Other benefits of Invisalign include:
- Completely removable
- No dietary restrictions
- Gently and comfortably straighten your smile
- Smooth fit that is molded to your teeth
- Proven track record for results in all types of cases
What Is The Treatment Process?
The treatment process starts with a consultation with Dr. Santucci. During this consultation, his team will assess your current oral situation using the iTero scanner to take images of your teeth and jaw. These images will be used to create the sets of aligners that guide your smile towards your desired results.
At the beginning of treatment, we give you several sets of aligners that you will switch out at home every two weeks to ensure your aligners gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. Allowing you to share in the responsibility of progressing yourself through treatment means fewer and shorter appointments.
Most patients undergo this process of aligner adjustments from one to two years. The exact treatment time depends on your needs which will be determined by Dr. Santucci at your initial consultation.
