How Invisalign Gradually Straightens Teeth

Now You Can Smile More During Treatment with Clear Aligners from Invisalign.

Invisalign is a recent advance in the methodology of teeth straightening.  Developed by Align, these “braces” consist of a series of aligners, or clear plastic trays, which are custom made to specifically fit your teeth. The aligners function to straighten your teeth on a stage-by-stage adjustment performed by Dr. Yurovsky.  Invisalign’s popularity is based on its near invisibility; it requires no metal brackets or wires. Another benefit of this technology is its easy removability, which allows for convenient brushing, flossing, and eating on your normal routine.

The process will initially begin with a consultation with Dr. Yurovsky.  During this consultation, she will be able to evaluate the layout of your teeth to determine if you are a fit candidate for Invisalign.  This treatment is not appropriate for children, but many teens and adults who do not have severely misaligned teeth can take advantage of this modern technology.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • It's clear and nearly invisible.
  • It's customized for your mouth.
  • It's removable.
  • It's comfortable.
  • It allows you to brush and floss normally.
  • No metal brackets or wires.

Procedure

Dr. Yurovsky will start with a simple examination of your teeth during your first dental appointment.  From there she will be able to discuss with you different orthodontic options for achieving your desired aesthetic results.  Invisalign is a best-fit option in teeth straightening for patients who do not have severe orthodontic needs.  If you fit the criteria of becoming a candidate for Invisalign, we will be able to create a detailed treatment plan, and prescribe a strategy that will give you your best orthodontic results.   In many cases, desired results can be completely achieved in less than a year.

Invisalign treatment will begin with a tray that will be fashioned from an impression of your teeth.  Making sure you wear the tray as often as possible will allow for a shorter duration of time to be spent in reaching your desired outcome.  Dr. Yurovsky will monitor the progress of your teeth alignment, and perform tray changes during the short check-up appointments.

We are pleased to offer this innovative technology to provide you with a bright, inviting smile.
