Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign clear aligners give adults with crooked teeth a reason to smile again.

You’ll smile during treatment because most people won’t notice you’re wearing aligners, and you can remove them to enjoy a great meal with friends. You’ll smile even more when treatment is finished because your teeth will look, feel, and function better.

Discreet, Comfortable, Convenient Invisalign

We offer Invisalign clear braces at Woodbury Dental Care for patients who want to straighten crooked teeth but don’t want to draw attention to their orthodontic treatment. 

Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible when worn. The aligners are made of smooth medical-grade plastic, and they won’t irritate the inside of your mouth as metal braces do.

Are you planning a night out with friends or attending a wedding or other big event? Feel free to take out your aligners for a few hours and enjoy yourself; just be sure to brush your teeth before putting them back in!

What Problems Does Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign corrects many of the same orthodontic alignment issues as bracket-and-wire braces.

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps or uneven spacing
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites

If you’re considering Invisalign, schedule an appointment at our Woodbury, MN, dental office. One of our experienced dentists will perform an exam and take digital x-rays to determine the extent of your tooth misalignment. If you are a good Invisalign candidate, you will move on to treatment.

How Invisalign Treatment Works

Straightening your teeth with Invisalign couldn’t be easier, and we’ll answer your questions and tell you everything you need to know before we begin.

Planning Invisalign Treatment

Instead of the messy dental impressions you may have had in the past, we use a handheld scanner to take comfortable digital impressions. The scan renders a virtual 3-D model of your teeth that our Invisalign dentists use with specialized software to map out specific tooth movements.

An Invisalign lab customizes several sets of aligners based on your individualized treatment plan. The number of sets you need depends on how much tooth movement is needed to achieve perfect alignment.

Wearing Invisalign

Your dentist will give you your first sets of aligners with instructions to wear them 22 hours a day. How long you wear each set before switching to the next depends on your needs, but it can be anywhere from one to three weeks.  

Each time you switch sets, you will notice that the aligners feel very snug at first. Day by day, they’ll loosen up, which means your teeth are moving, and you’re on your way to a straighter smile!

We will schedule check-in appointments for you approximately every six weeks to make sure treatment is progressing and give you your next sets of aligners.

Show off Your Beautiful, Straight Smile!

Your Invisalign treatment is finished when you’ve worn your final aligners, and we’ve achieved the ideal results. All that’s left is to smile and wear your retainer daily as instructed. Your teeth will always want to relapse to their original position, and your wearing your retainer will prevent this from happening.
