Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful, straight teeth you've always wanted — without brackets and wires. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Duffy can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
Clear - With Invisalign®, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing because each aligner is made of clear, medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible.
Removable - You can eat and drink what you want during treatment without worrying about breaking a bracket. Because you can take the aligners out when needed, you can eat all the nuts and apples you want! You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Comfortable - Because there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, achieving a beautiful smile is even easier.
Convenient - Because there are no wires to change or tie in, the appointments are generally much quicker. And most of the time they can be scheduled with a longer interval between appointments. This means shorter appointments, fewer appointments, and overall less interruption to your busy day!
How does it work?
Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Duffy uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth, then he customizes each aligner so that it fits your mouth.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks about 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final position. You'll visit Dr. Duffy about once every six to twelve weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to fifteen months.
