Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. At Sunset Dentistry we like to focus on function. By putting your teeth in the proper position, we can improve your bite. This can prevent premature wear on your teeth, allowing you to keep them in great condition longer.
HEALTHIER GUMS – It is easier to brush and floss around properly aligned teeth!
IMPROVED HYGIENE – Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque retention, tooth decay, and the risk of gum disease.
LESS WEAR AND TRAUMA – Aligned teeth have a much lower risk of tooth chipping, breaking, and wear.
Details on how it works:
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Morghem‘s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
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. Morghem has prescribed.
You’ll visit Dr. Morghem about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total Invisalign 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.
