We are a Certified Invisalign Provider
Consider Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Budd can determine whether Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow the patient to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you or your child can eat and drink whatever is desired while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem.
The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means the patient spends less time in the doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view the virtual treatment plan at the start so you can see how those straight teeth will look when the treatment is complete.
How does it work?
The patient wears each set of aligners for about two weeks, and removes them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.
You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
