What is Invisalign?


invisalign in murray utahVirtually invisible, the Invisalign system helps straighten your teeth so you can have the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3-D imaging technology to allow you to visualize your complete treatment plan, from the position of your teeth before treatment to the final, straightened position.

Clear aligners will be custom-designed specifically for your teeth to move them gradually into position. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks before replacing it with the next in the series until your teeth reach their final position. Your doctor will determine your Invisalign treatment time based on your unique needs.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners in Utah are transparent; no one has to know you’re wearing braces! Invisalign seamlessly fits into your lifestyle and the way you interact with others on a day-to-day basis. You can even remove your aligners to eat and drink what you want during treatment. Also, simply remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. No unwieldy brushing or flossing equipment required! Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is metal-free and doesn’t use irritating brackets or wires. You’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and more time out doing the things you love. Lastly, Invisalign makes it possible for you to view the virtual results of your treatment plan before starting: see how you will look with straight teeth before completing treatment.
