Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are typically changed every week and create pressure on teeth allowing them to slowly move. Invisalign was the original brand of clear aligners and continues to be an industry leader.
Invisalign works well in a variety of patients but can also lead to challenges in others. During your complementary consultation with East Tennessee Orthodontics we will go over our recommended treatment options with you depending on your goals, budget, and time.
Unlike some at-home treatments these clear aligners are closely directed by an orthodontist’s prescription. They are meant to correct not only the alignment of teeth but help correct our patient’s bites. They work best using prescribed attachments (clear tooth filling material glued to teeth to allow the aligners to grip the teeth better) and IPR (polishing between teeth to create room for crowded teeth) when needed. You can be confident in the results.
