Dr. Butler is very excited to bring Invisalign™ invisible aligners to his
patients who want a straighter smile or improved bite. Invisalign is an
innovative solution that allows you to have straight teeth as quickly as 9 -
15 months from start to finish! These aligners resemble teeth whitening
trays so they're ideal for busy adults who want something more discreet than
traditional braces. And Invisalign can correct crowding, wide spaces,
overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology is used by Dr. Butler to prepare your entire Invisalign treatment plan, starting with the current position of your teeth to your final smile. From this plan, clear thermoplastic aligners are created. These are custom made to fit your teeth very precisely. Each set of aligners is designed to use gentle forces that shift your teeth gently into position. About every two weeks, you replace the aligner with the next set, and progress through treatment until your goal is achieved. You only need to come into the office for evaluation every four to eight weeks. Total treatment time is based on your personal needs and goals.
The Invisalign system has a few distinct advantages. What most patients
like best is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth! The
aligners are so clear they're almost invisible! Anyone has to look very
closely, or know the aligners are there, to be able to detect them. This
gives you much more confidence in your smile while you are in active
Another benefit of the aligner system is comfort. Each Invisalign aligner is all in one piece, with no metal or wires. This eliminates any temporary mouth irritation, and with no wires or headgear to be checked and adjusted, your time in the dentist’s chair is significantly reduced.
And don't forget the convenience! The aligners are worn all day, including during sleep. But unlike braces, they're easily removable so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, with no food restrictions. And keeping your teeth clean and free of plaque is just as easy as it was before treatment, because there are no braces to get in the way of brushing and flossing.
