What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners (similar to a retainer) to straighten your teeth without braces, metal wires or brackets. Invisalign can offer you a stunning smile without most people even noticing you’re going through treatment. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and Dr. Keeling, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Keeling has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Keeling about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
