Experience Amazing Results Using the Invisalign Method

Most patients are pleased with their straighter smiles after going through traditional orthodontic treatment. These techniques still work well for many folks. However, the process itself can be long and tedious. Understandably, most patients are not wild about the thought of wearing uncomfortable metal brackets and wires for two to three years without a single break.

We offer Invisalign clear aligners, so you can move your teeth faster and with a lot less hassle. Before you start your treatment, we’ll plot out the necessary steps to get the results you want. This forward-looking system offers “clear” benefits over traditional braces, such as:

  • Discreet Treatment — Wearing nearly invisible aligners gives you a discreet way to improve your smile. No one may ever know how you got your beautiful smile.
  • A Convenient Process — Invisalign aligners are swapped out for the next set in the series by you at home. No in-office adjustments are required, which means fewer visits are needed. Plus, you can remove them during meals, so you won’t have to give up your favorite foods along the way.
  • Comfortable Gear — The aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic. They gently move your teeth little by little, until they are right where they need to be. No painful adjustments are involved!
  • Speedy Results — Invisalign takes about 12 months (give or take) to straighten teeth. Many of our patients have seen even faster results than that.

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take detailed measurements and impressions of your teeth. This information is used to design aligners specifically for you. You’ll wear a custom aligner set for about two weeks, then switch to the next one in the series. Every six weeks or so, you will come to our office so we can monitor your progress.

You can always combine Invisalign with other cosmetic services for a comprehensive smile makeover. If you are interested in our clear orthodontic aligners, call 541-668-8070 to schedule a consultation for Invisalign in Bend, OR.

Common Questions About Invisalign

Can Invisalign go wrong?

You’ll need to follow your Invisalign treatment plan to achieve the straight smile you want. It’s especially important to wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day. We recommend removing your aligners only when eating, drinking anything other than water, or brushing and flossing your teeth. You must also wear each aligner set for the recommended duration, usually two weeks. If you deviate from your treatment plan, it may take longer than expected to straighten your smile.

What’s Invisalign made of?

Invisalign aligners are made of a patented type of thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®. The flexible aligners fit snugly over your teeth. Since the plastic is clear, they barely show when you smile. According to Invisalign’s manufacturer, the aligners contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

How does Invisalign move your teeth?

Dr. Drew creates a treatment plan for you using special 3D software. He sends the plan to an Invisalign lab where all of your aligners are produced. You wear each set of aligners for roughly two weeks before moving on to the next ones. The aligners use gentle, controlled force to gradually move your teeth into alignment.
