does precisely what it name implies: It aligns teeth invisibly.
Invisalign features a series of trays that are
worn on the teeth. Each tray is used in sequence (changed every
two weeks) and incrementally moves teeth into their ideal position.
This process usually takes two years.
orthodontic treatment also can take up to two years, and sometimes
longer for particularly complex cases, or cases involving mature
patients (over the age of 25). Traditional orthodontic treatment
may include the wearing of braces only, or may
include surgical treatment. The exact staging of your treatment
including any extraneous surgeries will be planned with Dr. Alpan,
your general dentist and oral surgeon if necessary. If general
dentist or oral surgeon services are required during this process,
they will discuss their roles in your treatment specifically and
offer you estimates for their aspect of the treatment.

Extraction of wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth are known nuisances to
ideal orthodontic alignment. There is the potential that they
could affect successful alignment of teeth, or it may be that
their removal will provide sufficient space to allow movement
of the neighboring teeth. Wisdom teeth can also affect jaw alignment
Jaw alignment surgery. If this is an option in your treatment,
it will often be done at the same time as extraction of your wisdom
teeth. This surgery is meant to set the upper and lower jaws in
their optimal position in relation to each other. This helps establish
a function and healthy bite while chewing and a better facial
profile in cases of underbites and overbites;
Expansion appliances may also be necessary to expand the upper
jaw so that teeth meet properly for chewing.
times orthodontic alignment is also a chance to fix certain structural
and profile issues associated with the mouth, cheeks, and lips
and other deformities. Perhaps this is one other reason you have
decided to investigate orthodontic movement. If not, it is something
that you should be aware of. Dr. Alpan can discuss all the potential
outcomes and risks involved. If you have any questions whatsoever,
please discuss them before deciding to go ahead with treatment.
