Invisalign® is a successful orthodontic treatment that can improve the health and appearance of your smile—even if you’re an adult! In fact, many adults are choosing to align their crooked teeth with this treatment because of its cosmetic appeal. Many people don’t even notice you’re wearing the aligner!

This treatment can help you finally achieve a smile you’re proud of, and it can do so in these three easy steps:

Step 1: Your orthodontist, Dr. Vitaly Friedman, will take a series of X-rays of your smile. This will help your orthodontist map out a perfect individualized treatment plan just for you. Using the same technology, he will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move throughout the treatment.

Step 2: Next, a series of custom aligners will be made for your smile. The aligners will be made of smooth, comfortable, and safe plastic that won’t irritate your mouth. When you receive the set of aligners, you should wear them throughout the day, only removing them when you eat food and brush and floss your teeth. As you wear the aligner, your teeth will slowly shift into place.

Step 3: Approximately every two weeks, you will come into 21st Century Dental Care and receive a new set of aligners. This is your next stage of treatment. The new aligners will continue to move your teeth. You can achieve your ideal smile in about the same amount of time it would take braces to align your crooked teeth.
