Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening teeth using a custom made series of aligners created for you and only you.
These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Shefaat plans for you.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you will achieve confident smile that you have always wanted.
The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you are straightening your teeth. Usually the whole treatment takes about 6-12 months, and you only need to see Dr. Shefaat for a quick appointment every month and a half during the course of treatment.
The treatment starts by setting up a consultation with Dr. Shefaat to evaluate if you would be the right candidate for an Invisalign. Once that is established, we will take impressions, pictures, and molds of you teeth that will be sent to Invisalign to start building your case.
Once your case gets delivered to our office you will come in for an initial placement of the first aligners. After the first visit you will wear your Invisalign aligners all the time, except when eating.
It is very important to keep you teeth and aligners clean during your treatment. Every month and a half you will come in for a quick check up with Dr. Shefaat to make sure your treatment is progressing the right way. Compliance and devotion is crucial in Invisalign treatment so you can get the smile you always dreamed off.
