We begin the tooth straightening process by taking digital impressions of your teeth with the CEREC Omnicam. This camera captures full-color, 3D video of the oral cavity. As the camera moves over the teeth we can see every detail with great clarity. The CEREC Omnicam provides the image capture data we use to create your teeth aligners.
Invisalign treatment consists of wearing a series of custom-made aligners that correct the teeth a little at a time. With the aid of the AcceleDent Aura, the individual aligners are only worn for approximately one week each. They can easily be removed for eating, brushing and flossing, but are worn at all other times. The aligners are uniquely crafted to gradually push the teeth in a given direction, with each new aligner building on the work of the previous, until the desired effect is achieved.
In the past, wearing braces meant several years of treatment, along with lip and gum irritation, food particles lodged in brackets and many other annoyances. With Invisalign, patients need not worry about any of these problems. The aligners are thin and completely safe and comfortable in the mouth. Since they are removed when eating or brushing, they are much easier to keep clean. And, because they are clear, most people won’t even know you’re wearing aligners. Many Invisalign patients complete their teeth straightening treatment in a year or less.
