You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently.
You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.
More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfortability. Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional orthodontic approaches, like braces. These benefits include:

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Dr. Baxter. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Barbara Baxter, DMD for a consultation.
Dr. Baxter will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. She may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. Dr. Baxter will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.
Then Dr. Baxter customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.
