What exactly is INVISALIGN?
Invisalign® is a unique system designed to straighten your teeth using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology. Invisalign® is so advanced that it can detail precisely your exact treatment plan, taking it from the initial position of your teeth to the final position using clear aligners that are custom made for your teeth. These aligners will move your teeth over time eventually moving them to their final position. The aligners are worn for two weeks at a time with each one being replaced by another one that will move your teeth a little more, until your final position is achieved.
Dr Pinchas will determine your Invisalign® treatment based on the 3D computer imaging report.
