Dr. Silver and Dr. Sturm are certified lnvisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligner providers. This means that when you’re seen at Silver Smiles, you’re being evaluated by a true expert on the subject of lnvisalign clear aligners and how to achieve the best results. lnvisalign is a great alternative to braces. So, what is it exactly? It’s a revolutionary system that utilizes 3D computer graphics to design and manufacture customized clear appliances called “aligners.” When you start clear aligner treatment, you’ll get a series of clear aligners custom-made for your smile. You’ll follow Dr. Silver or Dr. Sturm’s treatment plan and wear each aligner for the specific amount of time they recommend. Then, approximately every two weeks or so, you’ll switch out your aligners to your next set, gradually moving your smile into its proper alignment.
It’s important to note that in order for lnvisalign to work, you have to commit to wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. The only time you would remove your aligners would be when you’re eating, drinking anything other than clear water, or brushing your teeth. If this doesn’t seem like something you would be able to stick with, lnvisalign or 3M Clarity Aligners may not be right for your smile.
