Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without using metal braces. Instead, it uses a series of clear aligners custom-made for each patient’s smile. These aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so patients can wear them without anyone noticing.
At Rafati Orthodontics, we have these aligners made from BPA-free plastic. Each set of aligners is designed to move the teeth slightly closer to their ideal positions and thus have to be worn for about two weeks. After that period, patients then switch to the next set in the series.
Treatment time varies based on each patient’s needs, but the average is about one year for adults and about two years for teens.
Common Dental Issues That Invisalign Can Correct
Invisalign can gradually shift crowded teeth into proper alignment, creating space and reducing overlapping.
Gaps between teeth can be closed using Invisalign by Dr. Rafati, helping to achieve a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Invisalign can correct an overbite by moving the upper teeth back and the lower teeth forward, achieving a better bite alignment.
Invisalign treats crossbite, where some upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth. This issue can cause misalignment and jaw discomfort if left untreated.
- Mild to Moderate Bite Irregularities
Invisalign can correct bite irregularities, including deep bites and mild overjets, improving function and appearance.
