Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® offers patients an alternative to braces. With Invisalign, an experienced orthodontist can not only shape an amazing smile for you, but also improve the health and function of your teeth, gums, and jaws. Invisalign can be used by patients of all ages, and is a popular choice for orthodontic treatment not only for adults, but teens as well. Most people can use Invisalign for their orthodontic treatment, and treatment time can be expected to be comparable with other treatment methods.

Invisalign works by gradually moving teeth using clear medical-grade plastic “aligners” that are molded to your specific teeth. You will progress through many aligners during your treatment. Each aligner is created with a specific amount of tooth movement that is prescribed by your orthodontist. As you progress from aligner to aligner, your teeth will move towards their desired final position. Your orthodontist will guide you through the aligners and recommend how frequently you change them; aligners are usually changed every 1-2 weeks.

Clear Aligners Invisalign OrthodonticsBecause you can take your aligners out, you will be able to eat and brush your teeth like you normally would. Since aligners are esthetic, comfortable and smooth, they make it easy for you to keep doing the things you love.  Whether meeting with friends or playing sports, Invisalign is probably a good fit for your active lifestyle. Because there are no braces in your mouth, your orthodontic treatment will be more comfortable and free of emergencies – no more poking wires with braces!

Invisalign is an appliance used under the prescription of your orthodontist. Every doctor is responsible for the specific prescription of an Invisalign treatment. While any dentist can provide Invisalign to a patient, only a certified orthodontist has completed advanced education in orthodontic tooth movement by attending a residency program. By choosing an experienced and well-trained orthodontist, such as Dr. Christopher Escott, you can expect the best result possible from your Invisalign treatment.
