Life With Invisalign®

invisalign-right-img-1
Making the decision to straighten your teeth is much easier when you know that Invisalign® treatment lets you live your life the way you want to. With Invisalign aligners, you don’t need to worry about the gum and mouth irritation other teeth-straightening methods can cause.

Invisalign® clear aligners take a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners (and switching to a new set typically every one two weeks) will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plan out for you.



Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® is a great alternative to braces for teens who would prefer to straighten their smile without braces. With Invisalign, your teen can play in the school band and even play sports without changing their schedule or their approach. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that are virtually invisible. So teens can concentrate on all the challenges that come with that stage of life without worrying about their smiles. Invisalign aligners are made with 3-D computer imaging technology and have revolutionized the way we treat teeth. Each aligner has the perfect amount of movement programmed in. Teens wear their aligners 24/7, taking them out only to eat, brush and floss. It's easy to get started with Invisalign. At Sullivan Orthodontics, we take a digital scan of your teeth, capturing (in great detail) your dental anatomy. This scan is painless and fast. Dr. Sullivan uses the scan to determine your prescription and then works with Invisalign to create your virtual computerized treatment. Once approved by Dr. Sullivan, the virtual treatment plan is used to create all the aligners needed to improve the smile.
