Invisalign and Invisalign Teen

At Ellender Orthodontics we offer Invisalign and Invisalign Teen as an alternative to braces. Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets using a series of clear aligners. They are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.

Why Invisalign and Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen uses a series of custom-made aligners created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Ellender plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

During your complimentary consultation Dr. Ellender may determine that Invisalign is the right treatment for your case. At this time or at a later appointment X-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth will be taken. These will be used to create a digital 3-D image of them that Dr. Ellender will use to map out a precise treatment plan and be able to tell you the approximate length of treatment. After your personalized treatment plan is mapped out you will receive your custom aligners, which you should wear for a minimum of 20-22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat, brush and floss.
