Plus, crooked teeth are not as attractive as straight ones. Orthodontic care can address all of these issues. At Willow Run Dental Association, we are proud to offer Invisalign® in Auburn. If you are interested in finding out whether this convenient, discreet, and effective treatment is right for you, contact us to schedule your consultation.

Why Choose Willow Run Dental Association for Invisalign®?

How Invisalign® Works

Traditional metal braces work by applying gentle, sustained pressure to the teeth. As the braces get tightened little by little over time, the teeth gradually move into their ideal positions. Invisalign® also applies pressure to the teeth. However, instead of using metal brackets and wires, it uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners. You simply wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for two weeks before you move onto the next. Once you have worn all the aligners, your teeth should be exactly where they ought to be.

You can get started with Invisalign® by visiting us for a free consultation, wherein we will evaluate your candidacy for Invisalign®, answer all of your questions, and discuss the future course of your treatment. If you decide to move forward, we will take detailed images and impressions of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for designing your custom aligners. Once you begin wearing the aligners, you will need to visit us periodically for brief checkup visits.

Indications for Invisalign®

Invisalign® is able to address most mild to moderate orthodontic problems, including malocclusion (bad bite), gapped teeth, rotated teeth, and more. Here is an overview of how it can correct some common issues:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded, overlapping teeth can trap food between them, increasing your risk of decay and gum disease. Invisalign®, often with the help of extractions, can usually shift the teeth so each one has the space it needs to thrive.

Gaps Between Teeth

Extra space between the teeth may leave your gums vulnerable to harm. Plus, many people dislike the look of gapped teeth. Invisalign® may be able to close or reduce those gaps to give you a healthier, more attractive smile.

Bite Alignment

Overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite can interfere with your facial aesthetics and dental function. Invisalign, often with the assistance of accessories, can correct many cases of such bite problems.
