Invisalign®

Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your self esteem as well as your level of confidence. As an adult you may hope to improve your smile for business or social reasons.  Perhaps you are a teen or the parent of a teen hoping to avoid the brackets, wires and restrictions associated with traditional braces. 

Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without having to live with the “metal mouth” look we have come to associate with braces. That’s because Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that are custom made for your teeth. Invisalign is virtually clear, so most people around you probably won’t even notice your wearing it. Even better, it’s comfortable with no wires or brackets that could irritate your mouth.

The Invisalign aligner trays are made of smooth comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Polasky plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. Best of all no one will really notice you’re wearing them. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete and you have the smile you’ve always wanted. 

It is easy to get started. First, Dr. Polasky will talk with you about your goals and examine your teeth to make sure they will benefit from the Invisalign system. She will then write a detailed treatment plan and order a full set of custom aligners for you. You wear each pair of aligners for a two-week period allowing your teeth to gradually evolve into a smile that shows off the real you. Treatment length varies, depending on your dental condition and the severity of your case. But often, a full program of treatment takes about one year.
