Invisalign® is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times except when eating, brushing, or flossing. Patients receive a sequence of custom fit trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners sequentially provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign®, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment. Wenger Orthodontics has been providing Invisalign treatment since 2000 and is currently a Platinum Plus Invisalign provider. Drs. Wenger and Orabi can often treat patients with Invisalign even if other providers only want to use traditional braces. Contact our office for a courtesy exam to see if Invisalign is right for you or your child.

Did you know…
Wearing Invisalign® is in no way as restrictive as traditional braces? Many adults opt for this system not only because it is discreet, but also because there is no need to change your diet to avoid foods that could damage braces. This is because the Invisalign® system is free of braces and brackets, instead opting for a removable tray that can be taken out prior to meals. Also, Invisalign® fits well into busy adult schedules, as there is no need to attend frequent visits for wire tightening. Most patients simply change to a new aligner tray every couple of weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for Invisalign®?
If you have crooked or crowded teeth that are embarrassing to you or otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, Invisalign® could be the solution for you. Visit us for a complete consultation to find out if you could benefit from clear orthodontics.
What should I expect during my Invisalign® treatment?
You will wear your aligners nearly all of the time, with the exception of about two hours per day. Invisalign® treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within one to two years. During that time, you can expect to make occasional dental visits to monitor your progress.
Will I need any post-treatment care?
Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign® trays. However, you will need to wear a retainer each day to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleaning.
