Invisalign in Elma, NY
Invisalign clear braces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that has helped many adults enjoy the straight, beautiful smile they have always wanted. Using Invisalign, we have changed the way we approach the problem of misaligned teeth. No more heavy metal braces or years of treatment – now you can easily correct crooked teeth in as little as a year!
Dr. Ollendorf-Finney is a Certified Invisalign Provider who has the training necessary to perform your treatment with the best possible results. She will take the time to listen to your concerns and expectations and will work together with you to decide if Invisalign is the right choice or if some other treatment is more appropriate.
The Invisalign Process
The entire Invisalign treatment process is relatively simple. Dr. Finney will evaluate your condition and work on developing a plan that outlines in detail each phase of your treatment. This information is sent to a special Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be created. 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.
Next, you’ll return to our office to be fitted with a set of upper and lower clear aligners. The aligners are customized according to our specifications and apply steady pressure to gently move your teeth into alignment. You will also receive a series of aligners designed to progressively move your teeth into proper position. Wear each set for about two weeks, then move to the next set in the series. Progress is continual, and you will notice the difference each time you move from one set of aligners to the next.
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign clear braces over traditional metal braces:
- Invisalign aligners are so discreet that most people won’t notice you’re wearing them
- The aligners are removable for eating, drinking, oral hygiene, and even special occasions. Just be sure to wear them for at least 22 hours per day.
- There is no metal to irritate your mouth, making treatment more comfortable.
- Brushing and flossing are more effective since the aligners can be removed.
- Treatment times with Invisalign are shorter than traditional braces, about 12 to 18 months on average for adults.
