For patients who want a beautiful, straight smile without the hassle and inconvenience of traditional metal braces, Dr. Chan offers the Invisalign system of removable aligners. Invisalign aligners are clear and removable; they are generally not noticeable and they will not interfere with your eating and hygiene habits.
What is Invisalign? It is an orthodontic treatment that uses a set of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth faster and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. The Invisalign aligners will gently move teeth through the placement of controlled force. Each aligner moves teeth gradually and is usually worn for about two weeks. Aligners are replaced by the next series until the final position is achieved. Here are just some benefits of Invisalign treatment: They are customized, invisible, removable, comfortable, and effective.
Dr. Chan uses 3D computer imaging technology to take an impression of your teeth and customize each aligner so that it fits your mouth and adjusts your teeth over time. Since the Invisalign aligners are made of clear, medical grade resin that is almost completely invisible when worn, friends, family and coworkers may never notice that you are wearing any aligners. Unlike traditional braces, your aligners can be removed - so that you can eat, drink, brush your teeth and floss – and they do not irritate your mouth and gums, because they are smooth and rounded along the edges. Most Invisalign treatments are only 9 to 15 months.
