With Invisalign, it’s hard for people to tell if you’re wearing them. The aligners are nearly invisible and are perfect for those who want discreet treatment — imagine no one noticing your orthodontic treatment.
Fewer office visits
Because Invisalign aligners use a series of trays to straighten your teeth, you will need fewer trips to the office for tightening and checkups. Imagine completing treatment is as few as 10 visits!
Technological advances with Invisalign mean clear aligners are far less painful than the braces you or your parents may have worn. This means less discomfort. Creating a beautiful smile doesn’t have to be painful!
Treatment on your own terms
Because Invisalign aligners use trays rather than brackets and wires, they can be removed for special events and you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. Imagine getting that picture-perfect smile even during treatment!
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 Dr. Oltjen has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Oltjen about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your 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.
