Invisalign Case Study
Regents Dental Group's Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners (see video) to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthdontic practices nationwide. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®.
Here's how Invisalign works. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, 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 the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
You'll visit your dentist about once every 4-6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. See how it works in the photos below.
