Invisalign

What is Invisalign®?

– Invisalign® is a way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign is also referred by many as Invisible Braces, Clear Braces, Adult Braces.

– Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.

– Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

– You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

– As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position that your Invisalign dentist has prescribed

– You’ll visit the dental practice of Dr. Vaughn about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your Invisalign orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned.

Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
