How Invisalign Works

Achieving a flawless smile doesn’t have to include painful metal braces. Dr. Geoffrey Skinner is pleased to present his patients with the modern ultra-comfortable option: Invisalign. Invisalign effectively corrects many different orthodontic issues without metal braces, including:

  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Open bite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Invisalign is an advanced system of smooth, clear aligners that are shaped to fit your unique smile. Dr. Skinner uses technology to map out your treatment plan. Your plan will include about twelve sets of aligners, that will gradually move your teeth to their perfect locations. Invisalign uses innovative SmartTrack material to deliver more precise control, constant gentle pressure, and elastic comfort.

How is Invisalign Different from Braces?

In the past, creating a straight smile required a little sacrifice. Braces wearers had to undergo the discomfort of metal brackets and wires, and the effect they had on their appearance. Now you can improve your smile without compromising your look.

Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are limitless. Patients can enjoy no food restrictions and no cleaning complications. You can continue to eat whatever you want, and brush and floss with ease, because Invisalign is removable!

Invisalign braces can quickly snap their braces in and out. Invisalign has little impact on your lifestyle. We hope to make your orthodontic experience as convenient as possible, and well worth your dazzling results!

How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?

Invisalign is made of a see-through thermoplastic SmartTrack material. Each one of your aligners is designed to advance your teeth closer to your ideal smile, in a sequence determined by your dentist. Dr. Skinner works hard to make sure your treatment will be as fast and effective as possible.

Invisalign aligners gently push against your teeth, causing them to move. After a few weeks, you will switch out the aligners to the next set in your series, and continue the process.
