Introducing Invisalign

Invisalign has revolutionized the orthodontics industry with its innovative approach to teeth straightening. Using clear, removable aligners, Invisalign offers a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. These custom-made aligners gradually shift teeth into their desired position, providing an effective solution for a wide range of orthodontic issues. Since its introduction, Invisalign has gained immense popularity among teens and adults alike, becoming one of the most sought-after orthodontic treatments worldwide.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign and other clear aligners work by using a series of custom-made, removable trays to gradually move teeth into alignment. The process begins with a comprehensive consultation, where Dr. McDermott creates a digital 3D model of your teeth using advanced imaging technology. This model is used to design a personalized treatment plan, mapping out the precise movements of your teeth throughout the treatment.

Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series. The aligners apply gentle, constant pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position. Patients typically wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Regular check-ups with Dr. McDermott ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned and allow for any necessary adjustments.
