Invisalign — Exciting Changes

I want to make you aware of some exciting changes with Invisalign, the clear trays (aligners) used to straighten teeth. I’ve been using Invisalign for almost eight years with good success and predictability.

Invisalign has an engineering team and they have redesigned their use of attachments and how they redirect single teeth. Engineers are trained in studying forces, speed, movement and shape. Who would be better suited to study tooth movement? By analyzing tooth shape from millions of case submissions, the engineers can move teeth with greater predictability. This is done in the laboratory and translated to the software.

Invisalign formerly offered two levels of straightening: Full Case, 11 or more aligners, and Express Case, 10 or fewer aligners. They have added a new level, Express 5, 5 or fewer aligners for minor tooth correction. Aligners are changed every two weeks, so an Express 5 Case would be complete in ten weeks.

Invisalign was a good product, but now it is an even better product. If you have been considering straightening your teeth, come in for a consultation and see what Invisalign can do for you.
