Drs. Robinson and Dr. Ries are Invisalign Elite Preferred Providers
Consider Invisalign for the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctors can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Brushing and flossing are also no problem. They are comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.
How does it 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 our doctors have prescribed. You’ll visit our practice about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 6-12 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. Up to three refinements are included in your treatment plan. Mid-course correction is also available in case you are unsure about your teeth during treatment. An anterior-only treatment option is also available, please ask Dr. Robinson and Dr. Ries for details.
