How Does It Work?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that uses removable alignment trays to straighten teeth. Your doctor will fit you with custom-designed alignment trays that slowly shift your teeth into the desired position. Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of trays until your teeth are perfectly aligned. The trays are barely visible in your mouth – your friends, family, and coworkers may not even notice they are there. The smooth plastic surface will not scratch or damage the inside of your mouth and you can remove the trays for eating, cleaning, and special occasions. Schedule a consultation with your doctor at Southwest Dental Group to find out if Invisalign® are right for you!
