Straighten Teeth Comfortably and Predictably
Many people want a straighter smile without the look and feel of braces. Beacon Dental Group offers Invisalign to children, teens, and adults. This custom treatment plan uses a series of clear retainers to gradually shift teeth into place over time. Because they are designed to be virtually invisible, most people can’t tell you’re wearing the retainers.
How Does It Work?
During your consultation with Dr. Oji, she will evaluate your teeth and determine the right course of action. If Invisalign is the right option for you, she will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a series of custom-made retainers.
If you are looking to straighten teeth or correct gaps in your smile, Invisalign may be the right orthodontic treatment option for you. With unique align technology, your retainers will move teeth into their correct positions without wires and brackets.
You will wear these custom-made aligners in a specific sequence to carefully move certain teeth into place with each new tray. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks before moving on to the next one. Unlike traditional braces, these retainers are removable. You can brush and floss your teeth comfortably without having to work around brackets or wires.
Treatment time will depend on your specific needs, which will be discussed with you. Generally, many patients undergo Invisalign treatment for 9 to 15 months and go through 18 to 30 aligners in total.
The aligners will be worn throughout the day and night, and you will only remove them while you eat or brush your teeth. Maintaining proper oral care with Invisalign is easy and convenient because you don’t have to work around brackets, wires, or other oral appliances.
Benefits of Invisalign
The most unique appeal that this orthodontic treatment has is that it is invisible. The retainers are clear, giving you the freedom to smile and laugh without bulky brackets while your teeth are being guided into place. When you eat or need to insert a mouth guard during sports, simply take the retainers out. You are in complete control with your orthodontic treatment. The more you wear the retainers, the sooner you will achieve your desired results.

- The aligners are removable.
- Many patients are candidates for Invisalign.
