Invisalign

 

At Big Happy Smiles, we want to help you get the best smile you can with minimal intrusion on your life. Straightening your smile no longer requires metal brackets and wires that are not only unsightly, but uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Invisalign consists of a series of fitted clear plastic aligners that gradually bring your teeth into a straighter, more attractive position. They are almost undetectable, allowing you to go about your normal life without anyone knowing that you are wearing them. This leading orthodontic appliance is less than a millimeter in thickness and can be removed at your convenience for eating, brushing, or flossing.

Once Dr. Pohlman has determined that you are a candidate for the Invisalign system, a dental impression of your teeth will be created. Each of the subsequent aligners will guide your teeth into a straighter position. Depending on the condition of your uncorrected alignment, the Invisalign system can give you a straighter smile in less than a year.

Some of the difficulties which can be corrected with the Invisalign system are:

  • Overbite/Underbite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Malocclussion (misaligned bite)
  • Slightly rotated or tipped teeth

Dr. Pohlman will advise you on the proper use of your aligners, deciding how long each stage will progress. It is important to remember that Invisalign only works if you use it. Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you can be confidant in your Big Happy Smiles.
