Invisalign

Stacks Image 9
Many people suffer from misaligned teeth. To some, the appearance of crooked and uneven teeth can be bothersome. Additionally, sometimes crowded or misaligned teeth create areas that are difficult or impossible to properly clean and can lead to cavities, periodontal disease, and other dental problems.

Our office offers the Invisalign system of straightening teeth. Whether it is for appearance or improved health or both, we can often resolve our patients’ concerns by implementing Invisalign.

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth. After we make models of the teeth, the aligners are fabricated using ultra high-tech computers and machines at an outside laboratory. When they are ready a few weeks later, the patient returns to our office to receive the aligners and instructions. We also check progress every few weeks during the entire treatment. The aligners move teeth over time, with each step in the sequence bringing the teeth closer to the desired end result.

Dr. Sullens can tell you if Invisalign is a good option for you. Not every case is ideal for this system; however, we can usually avoid traditional braces if only minor tooth movement is needed.
