Removable and Inconspicuous
The Invisalign clear aligner system uses custom designed, clear trays to straighten your teeth if you’re experiencing minor to moderate alignment issues. Whether you’ve had an orthodontic relapse, or just never addressed existing gaps or crowding, this method is effective in correcting these forms of malocclusion.
Those seeking a less noticeable approach can truly benefit from the Invisalign process. The trays can be removed, making it easier to eat, brush, and floss. Additionally, the clear and smooth design of the trays fit comfortably over your smile, which is an advantage over traditional metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligners guide your teeth into the correct positioning when worn for at least 22 hours a day. A new set of trays is introduced every two weeks to advance the alignment process. With proper maintenance and a commitment to the care instructions, patients can achieve their desired results in about a year’s time.
Determining Your Best Course of Treatment
Our doctors conduct a thorough exam to map out an appropriate tooth straightening plan. We use an iTero scanner that provides clear and precise images of all areas of the smile. Our dentists send these images to the Invisalign lab where they custom-make your trays to fit comfortably and work effectively.
While Invisalign clear aligners are a highly sought-after cosmetic option, they are not immediately beneficial to all patients. If more extensive issues exist in your smile, we may refer you to a local orthodontist who can provide you with traditional braces during the first stage of the process. Once the misalignment is more manageable, patients can elect to finish their treatment with Invisalign.
At 44th St Dental, Dr. Veker, Dr. Schneider, and our dedicated team offer Invisalign clear aligners as an effective and discreet orthodontic option for our patients in Edina, Southwest Minneapolis, and Linden Hills.
