Invisalign® aligners work to by gently and consistently applying pressure to your teeth, moving them in a pre-planned direction. Your aligners are progressively changed out as your teeth are moved, sometimes as frequently as every two weeks! This means less time spent at the at the office having adjustments made, and more time enjoying life.
Invisalign® is an innovative technology that is used to discreetly and subtly correct tooth alignment and bite issues. The Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, comfortable, and removable progressive aligners to move your teeth and shape the perfect smile. These clear, and virtually invisible, aligners are made from a patented SmartTrack® material, a BPA-free polyurethane based plastic.View Video
Once you and Dr. Farnsworth have decided that Invisalign is the right treatment path for you, he will scan your teeth using iTero® scanning technologies to digitally create a treatment plan and make your customized aligners. At the start of treatment, Dr. Farnsworth will work closely with you to determine an estimated treatment time.
Once you have your aligners, you will need to wear them for roughly 22 hours a day. You should remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth, but the majority of your day should be spent wearing them. It’s important to note that not wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours a day can prolong your treatment time. Roughly every two weeks, you will have a new set of customized aligners. Dr. Farnsworth tracks your progress and will make any necessary adjustments.
At the end of the day, Dr. Farnsworth is on your treatment journey with you, and your success is his success. He is committed to taking the time you need to answer all of your questions, explain why he is recommending what he is, and, above all, nurturing a lasting relationship with you. If at any point in your treatment you run into questions, never hesitate to call.
